Abstract

The Infrastructure Management System (IMS) project, of Alberta Transportation and Utilities, involves the development of an integrated, modular, database-oriented computer system to ensure optimal allocation of funds, and to support corporate decision-making regarding infrastructure management. The major components of IMS are identified as: data collection and validation, database integration and management, deterioration and optimization modeling, needs short-list generation and multi-year programming. This paper reviews the status of the Infrastructure Management System project. It also presents the results of a comprehensive survey in the area of infrastructure management. The concept of object-oriented data modeling and how it can be used to evaluate systems and processes using a technique called 'CRUD Matrix Evaluation' is discussed. The IMS data model and process model are described. Finally, the paper identifies the system's main components and modules including its proposed interface with a Geographic Information System.
