This report documents the joint development of a Pavement Management System (PMS) for use by the cities and counties of the state of Washington. This system makes full use of existing analysis software and experience provided by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) through its ongoing pavement management procedures. The system is currently being implemented and is expected to be used by most cities and counties within Washington State.
The joint efforts of the cities and counties in the development, implementation and training associated with the final PMS was very successful. This should help to develop an improved environment for the overall management of pavements within the state.
The system was implemented on IBM-PC type hardware and is structured so as to provide a complete stand alone management system for pavements as well as for general inventory, traffic and other pavement related data. The software is still under development with the final release expected in July of 1987.
