Abstract

Public concern over the deterioration of the infrastructure calls for rational solutions to the problem of neglect of dangerously failing water, wastewater, and transportation networks. In particular, decisions over maintenance, replacement, and rehabilitation planning require sound methodologies and data-collection practices. In this paper, the concepts of maintenance management incorporating preventive maintenance principles in lieu of crisis management are presented. The information hierarchy and structure for a modem maintenance management system is analyzed in light of its different functions. The case of the development of a maintenance management system for a water distribution system is described, including the different necessary modules and their interfaces. The phased development approach is suggested for the best integration of a maintenance management information system (MIS) by the sponsoring organization.
