Asset Management

The AASHTO TAM Data Assistant provides a user-friendly assessment of an agency's current practices and gaps in their use of data and information systems. The tool is flexible and may be applied to a number of different agency needs. The tool's assessments may be conducted individually, in groups, or in a mixture of both. The final assessment results include suggested improvement actions and clear graphs and tables summarizing the assessment outcomes and meaning.

For more information or assistance with the tool, check out the Quick Reference Guide or the series of short tutorial videos. This tool is a product of NCHRP Project 08-115.
