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...

The Pontis bridge management system is the predominant bridge management system employed in the United States. The system employs a network optimization model for preservation, formulated as a Markov decision process with a linear program solution procedure. On each bridge, a set of level-of-service standards determines functional needs, whose benefits are calculated according to a user cost model. A multi-year program simulation generates project alternatives ...

This paper is aimed at suggesting a methodology leading to effective supplier management processes utilizing information obtained from the supplier selection processes. For this methodology, we propose the supplier selection and management system (SSMS) that includes purchasing strategy system, supplier selection system, and supplier management system, and we explain how the SSMS is applied to a real supply chain. The methodology identifies the ma...

IT service provider organizations that have implemented a Quality Management System (QMS) according to ISO 9001 can take advantage of all the efforts made when implementing an IT Service Management System (ITSMS). In order to facilitate the integration of these two management systems, we analyze the existing relations between the requirements of the QMS and the ITSMS. Based on these results, we provide a new Integrated Management System (IM...

Massive use of beaches has forced traditional management of these systems to focus on the service offer to users. Consequently, human activity and behavior prevailed over other biological and physical processes and functions. Mirroring this tendency, the use of Performance Awards (Blue Flag) and Environmental/Quality Management Systems (ISO 14001, EMAS, and Q of Quality) were popularized as standards of environmental quality. In parallel to this process, recent intern...

Changes in projects are common and may be deleterious or beneficial—whether you see a change as a conflict or a valuable lesson depends only on your prospective. Project changes affect the cost, the scheduling, and the duration of projects, both directly and indirectly. Despite many articles and much discussion in practice and academic literature, there is a lack of information about systematic approaches to manage project change. This paper introduces a comprehensive project change managemen...

To understand the role that human factors play in major aviation accidents, it is important to look at the organization that people work in and the management that they work under. A method for building an effective safety management system for airlines is developed that incorporates organization and management factors. It combines both fuzzy logic and Decision Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL). This method can map out the structural relations among div...

Abstract The objective of this article is to empirically analyse whether there is a relationship between the difficulties found in the integration process and the level of system integration achieved. A sample of 362 organisations registered, at least, to both ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004, is examined. Structural equation modelling is applied to their responses to a mailed survey. Two different groups are studied depending on the number of management systems implemented:...

Abstract Engine management systems (EMS) has become an essential component of a spark ignition (SI) engine in order to achieve high performance; low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions. An engine management system (EMS) is a mixed-signal embedded system interacting with the engine through number of sensors and actuators. In addition, it includes an engine control algorithm in the control unit. The control strategies in EMS are intended for air-to-fuel ra...
