Review of UKPMS Core Functionality

Local highway authorities require pavement information and decisions systems to support the management of their transport infrastructure assets in the delivery of their transport objectives. The purpose of this study was to produce a core specification to replace the existing UKPMS specification as the minimum functionality that all PMS should embody in future to meet the evolving needs of local highway authorities and national governments in the UK for local roads.
Local authorities need confidence that the systems they use for asset management store, analyse and report on the data consistently and accurately to ensure that asset management decisions and financial information reports are correct. They need a nationally consistent approach to pavement asset management systems wherever the results have to be compared between authorities, or combined across a wider area. Also wherever authorities are required to justify their recommendations, decisions or actions so that they can demonstrate they have applied professional judgement in the context of nationally agreed guidelines or approaches, adapted to local needs, rather than in an arbitrary or idiosyncratic way.
This report determines the priorities and produces a rationale for the commonality of PMS functions across local authorities and systems, taking account of the increasing importance of an asset management approach. It sets out the proposed core functional specification and maps its implementation to an indicative timetable and budget, taking account of where the costs are likely to fall and the ability of the market to deliver. It identifies where there are gaps or techniques that would benefit from further research.
