Transportation Asset Management (TAM) -- All Around Success
As part of ongoing efforts to improve the state’s roadway system while taking careof what we have, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has implemented TAM Principles. These are increasing efficiencies and supporting technological advancements in collecting the data needed to manage Ohio’s transportation system in the 21st Century.
TAM’s business practices and data driven approach are also behind ODOT’s innovative use of lower cost paving treatments and more collaboration within the Department.
Although there is strong organizational support for TAM, it’s important to note there are other critical challenges driving the Department’s use of TAM principles. This Playbook is an acknowledgment of those challenges and describes strategies ODOT is using to plan ahead and to monitor ongoing performance so that we can respond accordingly.
