BEST PRACTICES IN SELECTING PERFORMANCE MEASURES AND STANDARDS FOR EFFECTIVE ASSET MANAGEMENT

The objectives of this research are twofold: to assess and provide guidance on (I) factors that should influence the selection of effective performance measures for asset management from engineering, customer satisfaction and economic development perspectives; and (ii) factors that should influence the selection of performance targets. The final product will be a report that provides step-by-step guidance on selecting performance measures and targets for a range of investment objectives for highway and other modal systems; as well as the best practices, analytical tools and data available to facilitate the determination or improvement of performance measures and targets.

  • Supplemental Notes:
    • The Guidebook produced by this research will provide step-by-step guidance to transportation agencies, e.g. DOTs, on how to select superior performance targets to achieve objectives for the highway and other modal systems; criteria to evaluate the effectiveness of performance measurement systems, and documentation on the best practices, analytical tools and data available for setting effective performance targets. The product will help agencies to systematically review existing performance targets that have been set by historical practice in order to determine whether superior targets can be adopted to increase customer satisfaction while reducing costs.
