    Abstract

    In 1965 a team of engineers from ARE Inc developed for the National Cooperative Highway Research Program the initial concept of pavement management. Subsequently, the authors have worked on a variety of pavement management applications worldwide at both the project and network level and at the city, county, state, and national level. This paper summarizes a series of findings from these extensive studies and outlines the institutional aspects of pavement management which have been found to be required for standard applications and for minimum success of a pavement management system. While the paper does not present quantitative mathematical relationships for pavement management, it does present standardization concepts and minimum requirements that have proven successful in a number of cases. Specific case studies and examples are also provided as a part of the paper.
