Summary of Maintenance Data and Uses and Administration. For MMS, each module combines diverse inputs on conditions of structures, maintenance actions, finan- Maintenance data include information on resources which cial resources, physical resources, public input/perceptions, are used to compute costs and information on bridge condi- DOT policies, and DOT goals. tions which are used to quantify improvements. Using these data, various evaluations can be made to present the cost and Planning. MMS planning proceeds from maintenance effectiveness of maintenance actions or the scope and accom- needs and feasible actions. MMS may automate the identifi- plishments of maintenance programs. Performance standards cation of some maintenance needs based on the comparisons are derived from maintenance data. of current conditions of structures with target values for con- ditions. Other needs may be based on a desired interval (for Maintenance Management Systems cleaning, etc.) without specific reliance on condition data. MMSs use maintenance data, reports, and evaluations to Programming. MMS composes work programs based on support decisions in maintenance programs. Management maintenance needs, priorities among needs, and constraints functions build upon basic reports and evaluations. Aspects imposed by available resources.
