Asset Management

Transportation Asset Management (TAM) is a system to manage and optimize the preservation of transportation infrastructures and supports the advancement of state-of-the-art technology, practices, procedures, and programs. As defined by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' Subcommittee on Asset Management, "TAM is a strategic and systematic process of operating, maintaining, upgrading, and expanding physical assets effectively through their life cycle. It focuses on business and engineering practices for resource allocation and utilization, with the objective of better decision making based upon quality information and well defined objectives."
