Maintenance management systems were among the first applications of rational management principles and the (then) the new technology of computers to highway operations. Recent changes in the composition and funding of highway programs, the organizational structures and missions of highway agencies, and federal legislation governing the development and use of management systems have focused increased attention on the design and used of such systems, as well as how to integrate maintenance management with other departmental management functions. This paper describes the conceptual design of an idealized maintenance management system (MMIS), to consider the integration of this system with other management systems and to explore potential applications of new management capabilities and technology.
