The TAM Research Management System (RMS) helps AASHTO and TRB TAM Committees plan and track research from concept through completion.
The RMS includes tools to help meet the information needs at each step of the research development process – establishing roles and responsibilities, defining milestones and recommended sequencing, and supporting collaboration and prioritization. Select one of the options below to get started.
The RMS includes three main areas for organizing TAM research information. The project pipeline organizes current active and programmed projects. The candidate pool contains all the concepts for potential future research ideas. And the management platform is used to manage the development of formal research statements.
The RMS is updated on an ongoing basis. New candidate research statements can be submitted at any time. Candidate statements are developed and prioritized using the RMS’s collaborative rating and editing tools.
If you are a new user or would like a brief explanation of the site, check out this video introducing the basic views and operations.
The RMS is designed around an annual research development process. Once a year, candidate projects are selected from the candidate pool to be developed into research statements and prioritized for advancement. To help focus this process, the RMS is organized by the TAM Framework introduced in the AASHTO TAM Guide. Every candidate, statement, and active project in the RMS is indexed and searchable using the six TAM Framework elements.
