Description: Introduces the main elements of transportation asset management, which has attracted significant attention over the past decade. It is a response to a number of developments that have challenged the traditional framework for transportation service delivery, including changes in the transportation environment; a shift in the publicÕs attitude toward the provision of public goods; and extraordinary advances in communication and computer technologies. The adoption of transportation asset management poses significant challenges on both the organizational structure and the existing knowledge base within transportation agencies. Course provides an overview of these challenges, and introduces theoretical frameworks within which the challenges may be analyzed. This course is not currently offered.
