MK Highways invests in Asset Management technology

MK Highways is utilising the latest software technology to assist with the long term planning of its carriageway and footway programmes.

MK Highways collects a huge amount of data about the networks we are responsible for; from electronic condition and safety surveys to public and Member feedback. This results in difficult decisions around asset management and planning to provide the optimum solution at network level whilst balancing cost and whole-life benefit.

The Asset Optioneering Model (AOM) is a computer model developed by Jean Lefebvre (sister company of Ringway). AOM is a unique options-based tool, which models highway asset management treatments by applying financial, commercial and technical criteria.

The ‘rules’ within the model are consistent with industry recognised sources such as TRL, ADEPT, RSTA, CIPFA and UKPMS.

AOM gives us the ability to tailor asset management and treatment choices in response to changes in budget, political or geographical priorities and results of condition reports. This provides decision makers with a powerful tool in justifying funding requirements and treatment choices. This model supports prioritisation of asset management and treatment decisions, and the effects that treatments and material choices have on future condition and expenditure.
