PAVER -- The Pavement Maintenance Management System -- originally was developed in the late 1970s to help the Department of Defense (DOD) manage M&R for its vast inventory of pavements. It uses inspection data and a pavement condition index (PCI) rating from zero (failed) to 100 (excellent) for consistently describing a pavement's condition and for predicting its M&R needs many years into the future. The PCI for airports became an ASTM standard in 1993 (D5340-11). The PCI for roads and parking lots became an ASTM standard in 1999 (D6433-11). The ASTM standard can be ordered from the ASTM website. The PAVER program performs multiple levels of analysis to show where to best allocate scarce M&R dollars.
PAVER is the State-of-Art technology in pavement management and its development has greatly benefitted from strong support both within and outside the DOD community. Major supporters include: US Air Force, US Army, US Navy, Federal Aviation Administration, and Federal Highway Administration. Additionally, non-DOD users including US cities and counties greatly benefit from the training and technology support services provided by Colorado State University (CSU) Paver Center, the American Public Works Association (APWA) and the University of Vermont (Coming Soon).
