The managing/owning bodies of road infrastructures seek to pursue the best maintenance policies aimed at maintaining civil works within safety, functionality and usability standards.
The Company has developed Bridge and Tunnel Management software which, starting with the information derived from monitoring the infrastructure, helps to identify the best scenarios for maintenance and optimisation of works on the structures in question, with the goal of providing a system to support the operator’s decision making process.
Management systems, fine-tuned by the Company, have a dual purpose as a database and a tool to support decision making.
The database function is used to regularly record, on a single system, all inventory and inspection data of the works, in order to consult:
The decision support tool function uses this data to provide predictions of future needs and prioritized intervention choices for different maintenance policy scenarios. Its aim is to:
Thanks to the experience acquired in the field of maintenance interventions, the models have been implemented with economic information, making explicit the estimate of the costs of maintenance interventions and relating it to the budgets that the managing body can annually allocate to maintenance, in order to achieve multiple objectives.
