Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 54-22. Practices for Capturing Costs of Maintenance Operations in Maintenance Management Systems

The objective of this synthesis is to document state DOT current practices to capture maintenance costs in their MMS, the level of detail captured, and the level of integration and synchronicity with financial systems and ERPs. Information to be gathered includes (but is not limited to): (1) Level of detail of maintenance costs captured including labor, equipment, materials; indirect/overhead costs; (2) How and where the different types of cost are captured (e.g., in the field on a mobile device, copied from paper forms, captured directly into the MMS); and (3) Level of integration and synchronicity with financial systems and ERPs (and other systems such as linear referencing management systems). Information will be collected through a literature review, a survey of state DOTs, and follow-up interviews with selected agencies for the development of case examples. Information gaps and suggestions for research to address those gaps will be identified.
