    Abstract

    This paper describes a survey designed to estimate the present status of implementation of the pavement management system, PAVER, within the U.S. Air Force. The research described in this paper is based on a 100 percent population survey of over 100 USAF civil engineering organizations, located throughout the U.S., Europe, and the Pacific, as potential users of PAVER. This work estimates and validates not only the present extent of several pre-identified problem areas in PAVER implementation, namely, training, manpower, equipment, and top management support, but also the current extent of PAVER's use and application. In addition, multiple regression is used to determine the existence of relationships between those variables which may influence the acceptance and active use of PAVER, such as training, manpower, equipment and diffusion-of-innovation variables, and those variables which may indicate PAVER's degree of use and acceptance, such as accuracy of data input into PAVER and the extent of a pavements network input into the system.
