    Pavement management systems (PMS) are not being adopted and implemented at the rate expected. Many factors reducing the implementation can be attributed to barriers related to institutional issues. Diffusion of innovation studies help describe these barriers. They can also be used to help develop methods to remove or bypass the barriers.
