Today's bridge managers face a difficult challenge: improving bridge safety and performance with optimized work plans that fit limited budgets. Meeting this challenge with a mature bridge management strategy can help maximize the benefits of bridge projects across the full asset lifecycle and across your bridge network. Here are 6 keys to delivering higher bridge performance and network value through data-driven decision-making. HIGHER BRIDGE NETWORK PERFORMANCE 6 KEYS TO For more than 25 years, AgileAssets has been a global leader in transportation asset lifecycle management, providing enterprise software solutions that help maximize the return on infrastructure investments.

This will help you make the best use of your funds as you maximize performance across the asset lifecycle and network. Spending $1.00 on repairs saves an estimated $5.20 in economic and environmental impacts. Integrate your asset management strategies for bridges, pavement, and other asset classes to enable more coordinated operations across teams that help manage the full bridge lifecycle. You can then make more strategic cross-asset tradeoff decisions and improve overall network quality. INTEGRATE & MAKE TRADEOFFS 6 4 OPTIMIZE PROJECTS Conduct a multi-year, multi-constraint analysis based on your budget and performance targets. Complete a gap analysis of performance and funding. Use optimization analysis to model various what-if scenarios and their outcomes. Then, determine the best preservation-based strategy and prioritize projects that provide a high return on your infrastructure investment. 1 ENSURE DATA ACCURACY Record and assess current and historical data on inspections, inventories, and conditions of bridges and related structures. Collect element-level condition data for your full network. To improve accuracy, replace paper-based data collection with a mobile application that can format, validate, and sync field data with your bridge management system. 3 SET TARGETS & ANALYZE DATA Establish network performance goals that support compliance requirements and agency objectives within your defined budget. Evaluate condition data, deterioration models, treatments, and treatment improve- ment models at component and element levels to facilitate precise condition deterioration forecasting and project planning. 2 STREAMLINE INSPECTIONS Automate the scheduling of inspection candidates based on the inspection cycle and last inspection. Use map- based visualizations to help teams pinpoint bridge locations and nearby features that may affect field work. Capture measurements, photos, and comments digitally in one place. Spending on repairs saves an estimated in economic and environmental impacts. $ 1.00 $ 5.20 * *
