What is
Transportation Asset Management?
Transportation Asset Management is a strategic and
systematic process of operating, maintaining,
upgrading, and expanding physical assets
effectively throughout their lifecycle. It focuses on
business and engineering practices for resource
allocation and utilization, with the objective of better
decision making based upon quality information
and well defined objectives.

TAM Addresses 5 Core Questions
• What is the current state of my assets?
• What are my required levels of service and
performance delivery?
• Which assets are critical to sustained performance
delivery?
• What are my best investment strategies for
operations, maintenance, replacements and
improvement?
• What is my best long-term funding strategy?

Evolution of TAM in the US
Performance management growing in importance
TAM systems integrated with ERP implementations
Greater use of AM principles in everyday DOT activities – policy link to decisions
