Asset Management (Terminator*)This terminator represents the systems that support decision-making for maintenance, upgrade, and operation of physical transportation assets. Asset management integrates and includes the pavement management systems, bridge management systems, and other systems that inventory and manage the highway infrastructure and other transportation-related assets. The types of assets that are inventoried and managed will vary, and may include the maintenance and construction vehicles and equipment as well as "soft" assets such as human resources and software. Asset management systems monitor the condition, performance, and availability of the infrastructure and evaluate and prioritize alternative reconstruction, rehabilitation, and maintenance strategies.

Inputs/Outputs: Architecture Flows* and Data Flows*
Archived Data Management Asset Management
- archive requests (Architecture Flow*) - A request to a data source for information on available data (i.e. "catalog") or a request that defines the data to be archived. The request can be a general subscription intended to initiate a continuous or regular data stream or a specific request intended to initiate a one-time response from the recipient.
- archive status (Architecture Flow*) - Notification that data provided to an archive contains erroneous, missing, or suspicious data or verification that the data provided appears valid. If an error has been detected, the offending data and the nature of the potential problem are identified.
Asset Management Archived Data Management
- asset archive data (Architecture Flow*) - Information describing transportation assets including pavements, bridges, and all other infrastructure included in the transportation network. In addition, information can cover support assets (support equipment and systems, software, etc.). Content may include a catalog of available information, the actual information to be archived, and associated meta data that describes the archived information.
Asset Management Maintenance and Construction Management
- asset damage assessment (Architecture Flow*) - Information indicating the damage sustained by transportation assets, derived from aerial surveillance, field reports, inspections, tests, and analyses.
- asset inventory (Architecture Flow*) - Information on pavement, bridges, signs and other assets. This includes asset location, installation information, materials information, vendor/contractor information, current maintenance status, and a variety of other information (e.g., video logs) that define the transportation infrastructure.
- asset restrictions (Architecture Flow*) - Restrictions levied on transportation asset usage based on infrastructure design, surveys, tests, or analyses. This includes standard height, width, and weight restrictions by facility as well as special restrictions such as spring weight restrictions and temporary bridge weight restrictions.
- maintenance and repair needs (Architecture Flow*) - Recommended strategies and schedules for maintenance of the transportation infrastructure.
Maintenance and Construction Management Asset Management
- asset status update (Architecture Flow*) - Changes to status of pavement, bridges, signs and other assets resulting from maintenance or construction activities or infrastructure monitoring. The updates may include changes in installation information, materials information, vendor/contractor information, condition, and current maintenance status. In addition to infrastructure asset updates, the information provided may also include status of the maintenance and construction support assets, including vehicle and equipment utilization and repair records.
