Maintenance Activity Data Analysis for Performance Based Budgeting

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) Maintenance Bureau is responsible for conducting effective and efficient highway maintenance operations throughout the state. A primary maintenance objective is "to ensure effective and economical utilization of resources in the accomplishment of maintenance programs". In 2011, the Maintenance Bureau upgraded software programs used to collect and store data related to daily maintenance activities. Specifically, a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) and a statistical software package were acquired. One objective in obtaining the new systems was to improve budgeting performance and analysis for the Bureau. The goal of this proposed research project is to assist the ALDOT Maintenance Bureau with analysis of the computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) and the significant amount of quality data being captured. The proposed outcome of the project is the identification and demonstrations of techniques the Maintenance Bureau can utilize in their transition to performance based budgeting. The main objective of the proposed research is to identify and demonstrate techniques to maximize the benefit of the large amount of quality data being captured daily in the maintenance Bureau's computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), entitled RoadMap. The techniques developed will specifically target increasing efficiency and effectiveness of the budgeting process without burdening the current process.
