Abstract : Micro PAVER is a microcomputer version of the PAVER Pavement Maintenance Management System. PAVER is a field-tested, validated pavement maintenance management for airports, cities, counties, and military installations which is designed to optimize the funds allocated for pavement maintenance and rehabilitation (M&R). This report discusses the development of the Micro PAVER program and its capabilities in the areas of pavement network inventory, project prioritization, inspection scheduling, determining present and future network condition, determining maintenance and rehabilitation needs, budget planning, and economic analysis. The Micro PAVER technology is based on the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) survey and rating procedure developed at USA-CERL. The PCI, which is a numerical index from 0 to 100, is a measure of the pavement's structural integrity and operational condition and is computed as a function of distress type, severity, and quantity. The PCI provides an objective and consistent measure of pavement condition. Micro PAVER provides data and procedures for practical decisionmaking to identify cost-effective maintenance and rehabilitation needs for roads, streets, parking lots, and airfield pavements. The Micro PAVER system shows the effects on the pavement network of performing no major rehabilitation, allows the determination of life cycle costs for various M&R alternatives, and provides a rational and objective basis for evaluating pavement condition and determining M&R needs and priorities.
