    Abstract

    Agencies wishing to procure an available pavement management system appropriate to their institution and circumstances are faced with a complex series of tradeoffs between many system features and the probable need for system modifications. A set of generic criteria is presented for use in evaluating the completeness and appropriateness of a system, and in ranking alternative systems when a quantitative evaluation is desired. The fifteen criteria cover system completeness, the user interface, the analytical model, and data collection and management. The scope covers strategic planning, network programming and budgeting, project design and implementation (construction) monitoring. A supporting checklist of over 100 detailed criteria is provided for help in reaching a quantitative assessment.
