Development of Maintenance Decision Support System

The objectives of this project are to (1) assess the need, potential benefit, and receptivity in participating state transportation departments for state and regional Maintenance Decision Support Systems; (2) define functional and user requirements for an operational Maintenance Decision Support System that can assess current road and weather conditions, forecast weather that will affect transportation routes, predict how road conditions will change in response to candidate maintenance treatments, suggest optimal maintenance strategies to maintenance personnel, and evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance treatments that are applied; (3) build and evaluate an operational Maintenance Decision Support System that will meet the defined functional requirements in the participating state transportation departments; and (4) improve the ability to forecast road conditions in response to changing weather and applied maintenance treatments.
