The major effort during the years in which pavement management emerged as an accepted practice was making refinements to the technical models and techniques in the systems. For example, simple straight line pavement deterioration models gave way to polynomial regression equations and Markov probabilities. Optimization techniques were refined, ranging from simple ranking procedures to more sophisticated benefit/ cost analysis. Most recently, efforts have been underway to automate the data collection requirements which feed the systems.
