Cross Asset Management Tools
Design - Project No: TEM 014
Purpose: PennDOT will soon need a framework for performing cross asset optimization of our two largest asset classes, bridges and pavements, so that the agency can prioritize work between the two under the Lowest Life Cycle Cost methodology (LLCC).
PennDOT is currently in the final stages of implementation of both bridge and pavement asset management systems. These systems perform complex analysis on our existing data sets and provide a prioritized list of recommended projects that is based on LLCC. While these systems work well independently, the agency needs a way to achieve the following:
create realistic combined projects based on outputs of both systems
projects must be LLCC based and financially constrained
framework must be transparent, robust and follow all current transportation industry standard
PennDOT will receive a report that:
details the potential frameworks that are applicable to this application
recommends a specific framework with justification
provides an example analysis using the recommended framework on a small data set
Additionally, we anticipate assistance in the logic portion of implementing the recommended framework into our Enterprise Project Optimization System.
