TL;DR: A pavement management system was developed for the State of Arizona to produce optimal maintenance policies for each mile of the 7,400-mile network of highways as mentioned in this paper, which integrated management policy decisions, budgetary policies, environmental factors, and engineering decisions.
Abstract: A pavement management system was developed for the State of Arizona to produce optimal maintenance policies for each mile of the 7,400-mile network of highways. The heart of the system is a mathematical model which captures the dynamic and probabilistic aspects of pavement maintenance. The model integrates management policy decisions, budgetary policies, environmental factors, and engineering decisions. During the first year of implementation, fiscal year 1980–81, the system saved 14 million dollars (almost 1/3 of Arizona's preservation budget). The forecast savings over the next four years is 101 million dollars.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors present the results of a methodical series of analyses on an important data set from Brazil, where the data were scant in many respects, and, because of the nature of the phenomena investigated, often exhibited large scatter.
Abstract: The performance of road pavement and the effects of maintenance are important parameters of the cost of road transport; both determine the direct outlays of the highway authority and affect the operating cost of vehicles plying the roads. Although pavement engineering and design is by now an old art, the specific pavement performance and response to maintenance are less well known, at least in quantitative terms. This is particularly true for roads in developing countries, with their diverse physical and climatic environments, construction methods, and traffic characteristics. This volume presents the results of a methodical series of analyses on an important data set from Brazil. The data were scant in many respects, and, because of the nature of the phenomena investigated, often exhibited large scatter. Through a judicious combination of theory, empiricism, statistical finesse, and engineering judgment, the author has been able to establish important relationships. Of particular significance is the establishment of causality of events; a pavement starts to crack and to ravel; the cracking then increases in extent and intensity; this leads to potholing and other surface disfigurement, which together with rutting, leads to increased roughness--the principal parameter affecting vehicle operating costs. Life-cycle costing of roads, road pricing and regulation policies, pavement management, and verification of design methodologies are discussed at length.
