HNTB has provided the design, development and long-term enhancements and support to MDOT’s statewide ITS asset management system. The system was collaboratively designed and developed in several phases and has been established as a crucial element to MDOT’s on-going asset management strategy. A key element to success was the identification of an effective early-win strategy. When the statewide Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Office wanted a more sophisticated application to help manage its assets, priority was given to the first module which extended a legacy tracking database to dynamically map the assets using geospatial technology. The effort was successful and became an early win, which helped HNTB to continue expanding its enterprise asset management efforts into additional modules and methods to inventory its assets, track work orders, monitor availability of spare inventory, program maintenance crews and provide sophisticated web-based application to provide decision support towards asset repair and replace programming.
