  • Abstract:
    This AASHTO Transportation Asset Management Executive Summary serves as a companion to the AASHTO Transportation

    Asset Management Guide—A Focus on Implementation, which takes as a starting point the Transportation

    Asset Management Guide published by AASHTO in November 2002. The AASHTO Transportation Asset Management

    Guide—A Focus on Implementation is focused on implementing TAM. All three documents should be read and

    used together—they are complementary.

    The AASHTO Transportation Asset Management Guide provides considerable background information about

    Transportation Asset Management, the advantages of using TAM, and an approach that agencies can use to identify

    where they are now and where they should focus their asset management efforts.

    The AASHTO Transportation Asset Management Guide—A Focus on Implementation is presented in three key parts:

    • Part 1, which is focused on organizing and leading TAM. Part 1 is of most interest to executive management.

    • Part 2, which is focused on processes, tools, systems, and data. Part 2 is of most interest to practitioners,

    • Appendices, which include examples of asset management plans and four in-depth case studies of local and

    international agencies’ experiences in implementing TAM.

    2 AASHTO Transportation Asset Management Guide—Executive Summary

    The guide is a “step-by-step” presentation of the tasks to implement asset management in a transportation agency

    [Section 1.2.1]. It is structured so that a reader can use a particular section or topic as a source of advice (typically

    a practitioner) or use the whole in order to drive a systematic agency-wide implementation (typically the executive)

    [Section 1.2.2].

    Chapters 1 through 4 provide the context and preparatory steps that any agency will need to undertake as it prepares

    for asset management implementation. The material in these chapters is broadly applicable to agencies at any level

    of maturity. In Chapter 4, differences emerge among agencies at varying levels of maturity, as the more advanced

    agencies will typically have more formalized and extensive TAMPs in place. Chapters 5 to 8 are designed to be used

    selectively, depending on the priority areas of

    improvement identified by the gap analysis in Chapter 2. These later chapters are focused on the specific tools,

    methods, and information technology resources required in order to reach the more mature stages. The most mature

    agencies use all the tools described here. However, it is important not to be overwhelmed by their breadth and depth.

    Agencies climbing the maturity scale which might not use many of these tools today can set their own priorities for

    near-term implementation activities.
