As most transportation agencies know, managing pavement assets is a big job with many variables to consider while making the best decisions possible with limited dollars. In order to ensure pavement funding can go as far as possible, it is important for an agency to track performance of the asset at a network level. Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are commonly used to represent the health of the network, show progress towards goals, and measure the effectiveness of the agency in managing pavement assets.
This recorded webinar is brought to you by the Florida Pavement Preservation Council (FPPC) in concert with the Florida LTAP Center. FPPC is a non-profit organization organized in 2010 under the National Center for Pavement Preservation at Michigan State University. FPPC’s purpose is to support Pavement Preservation and asset management education and outreach to local agencies across Florida
This session will cover:
• Common KPIs employed by transportation agencies
• Guidance on best practice in the use of KPIs
• Practical examples for reporting to non-technical audiences, such as legislators and the public
• How to identify which roads are the best candidates for treatments
• How to monitor the performance of those treatments over time
• How to assess if your condition measurements are objective and repeatable
• The new ASTM standard being developed for automated pavement condition surveys
• Other developments in automated condition surveys and best practices for data collection.
