Guidelines for Maintenance Management Systems, 2004. State highway agencies have undertaken major initiatives to implement new and improved maintenance management systems (MMS). A comprehensive MMS can help managers at all organizational levels meet their growing challenges. Major benefits that can be attained with MMS include the following: maintenance quality rating systems; customer-input data; trade-off analysis to determine the maximum benefits attainable with available funding; application of performance-based budgeting techniques; and assessment of consequences of shifting funds between competing program objectives.

Detectable Warning Products Installation, Maintenance, and Durability Considerations (3.74 Mb, PDF)
The objective of this study was to create a compilation of the available research and other information available with regard to the durability and maintenance of detectable warnings under different conditions. Researchers identified manufactured product types and materials, installation procedures, routine maintenance activities, damage caused by these activities, and durability and performance associated with each type of product. Researchers synthesized published information from the literature regarding product types, installation, performance, and maintenance. Researchers also contacted knowledgeable individuals in the industry and within selected agencies known to have experience with detectable warnings.
