The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) recognized the need to improve its pavement management program to save time and money while achieving performance targets.
The DelDOT team identified three strategic goals:
- Improve decision-making, budget allocation, and treatment selection
- Develop a standardized approach to procuring data-collection vendors
- Convert automated data into operational results
To achieve these goals, DelDOT staff prepared a business case to procure a comprehensive pavement management system (PMS) that featured advanced optimization analysis.
