Data and Information Systems for Transportation Asset Management
Is your agency effectively using data and information to support its transportation asset management (TAM) program? The NCHRP 08-115 Guidebook provides a structured approach to assess current practices and improve use of data and information for TAM. Explore and apply this guidance through this website and the companion TAM Data Assistant digital application.
Navigate the site chapter-by-chapter, exploring all of the figures and charts present in the final draft guidebook. Or download the guidebook by chapter for your own perusal.
Explore the five areas of the data life-cycle: Specify and Standardize Data; Collect Data; Store, Integrate and Access Data; Analyze Data; and Act on Data.
Follow along with the detailed step-by-step process for the self-assessment of data and information systems and the implementation of improvements.
Evaluate the current and desired state of agency practice, select from potential improvements to close gaps, and analyze, prioritize, communicate and support implementation of selected improvements to move the agency TAM program to the desired state.
