FHWA DQMP Report Published

FHWA has just published one of our recent reports by @TheTranstecGroup and @Wood on the Data Quality Management Plan (DQMP). This report is the Phase I report entitled “Successful Practices for Quality Management of Pavement Surface Condition Data Collection and Analysis. This document’s performance measures include International Roughness Index (IRI), cracking, rutting, and faulting. This document is a living document to assist US State Highway Administration in improving their DQMP for States’ asset management and the data submitted to the US Highway Performance Management System (HPMS). Any readers can download this report from this URL (https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/pub_details.cfm?id=1120). The final DQMP report will include lessons-learn from pilot projects of applying this document to the data quality management at the Alabama Department of Transportation (DOT), Washing State DOT, and Pennsylvania DOT. The same principles can also be useful for any data quality management around the world.

ProVAL is an engineering software application used to view and analyze pavement profiles. In ProVAL, users can import profiles from various file formats and save them in the Pavement Profile standard file type. Entire analysis projects can be saved, which preserves user information and analysis inputs. After analyses have been performed, the user can print a report of the original profiles and the results of any analyses performed. ProVAL has been adopted by many agencies around the world.
