Australian National Risk Assessment Model | Research Report
The Australian National Risk Assessment Model (ANRAM) helps identify and manage risk on roadways. Both fatal and severe crash risk hazards are identified, and the risk is managed through programs that reduce the crash risk through the road system. The report details the development of ANARM, and also serves as a guide to implement the model on a practical level.
Executive Strategies for Risk Management | Research Report
Departments of Transportation (DOTs) face myriad risks both in long term planning and in the day-to-day functions of the agency. This report describes how the leadership at DOTs currently implement risk management protocols, and to identify which strategies were most effective. A survey of state DOTs was constructed to both identify the perceptions of risk and risk management and to detail the effect those risk management practices how the on the agency's strategic goals.

Road Safety in Canada | Research Report
This digital booklet provides information intended for road safety professionals about how to effectively promote road safety in Canada. It details Canada’s Road Safety Strategy (RSS), which emphasizes the primary risk groups, such as young drivers, drivers with medical conditions, vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and motorcyclists, and high risk drivers, such as aggressive drivers including speeders, impaired drivers, or those who do not wear seat restraints. The booklet contains a wealth of data on road accidents both in and outside Canada.

Lean Improvement Division - An Introduction to the Collaborative Planning System | Guide/Manual
This guidance explains the concepts supporting the Collaborative Planning System, a lean methodology comprising a series of tools, approaches and processes. The Collaborative Planning System incorporates production control, collaborative mapping, and process improvement. This guide is intended for transportation practitioners who already have an understanding of basic lean principles and wish to implement the Collaborative Planning System in their organization.

Sustainability Performance Measures for State Departments of Transportation and Other Transportation Agencies | Guide/Manual, Research ReportBridge, Environment, Pavement, Safety, System Performance
Objective: To develop a guide for state DOTs and other transportation agencies to use to measure the sustainability of their networks, systems, facilities, projects, and activities, at the appropriate scales, stages (long-range planning, programming, project development, design, construction, maintenance, operations), and time frames.
Guidelines for Evaluation and Performance Measurement of Congestion Pricing Projects | Guide/Manual, Research ReportSystem Performance
Objective: To create guidelines for evaluation and performance measurement of congestion pricing projects that are designed to optimize the use of available roadway capacity, to help agencies select or develop appropriate performance measures, collect the necessary data, track performance, and communicate the results to decision makers, users, and the general public.
Workshop on Transportation-System Performance Measures Suitable for National Use | Research Report
AASHTO’s Standing Committee on Performance Management. (SCOPM) members held a two-day meeting in October 2010 to discuss specific measures that should be proposed for adoption by AASHTO and research needed before adoption can be considered. The research team is providing professional services to support continuing discussion and report on results. A report of the October meeting and subsequent discussions at the AASHTO 2010 Annual Meeting was prepared. Additional action by SCOPM and possibly the AASHTO Board of Directors is anticipated to result from this work.
Target-Setting Methods and Data Management To Support Performance-Based Resource Allocation by Transportation Agencies | Research ReportBridge, Pavement, Safety, System Performance
The objectives of this research were to (1) describe a comprehensive framework and set of methods (a) to analyze opportunities to improve the multiple-objective performance of transportation systems within the context of broader societal goals and (b) to set specific performance targets to guide agency policies, plans, and programs; (2) detail the factors that influence target setting and the success of performance-based resource allocation systems and explain how agencies may successfully design, implement, and use such systems; and (3) analyze the data and information needs, data acquisition and management systems, and institutional relationships required to support successful performance-based resource allocation systems.
Performance Measures for Freight Transportation | Research ReportFreight
The objective of this project is to identify measures to gauge the performance of the freight transportation system. The measures should support investment, operations, and policy decisions by a range of stakeholders, both public and private, and reflect local, regional, national, and global perspectives. Areas of emphasis should include, but not be limited to, efficiency, effectiveness, capacity, safety, security, infrastructure condition, congestion, energy, and environmen
Establishment of Comparative Performance Measures Program Infrastructure to Support National System Performance Data Collection and Analysis | Research ReportBridge, Pavement, Safety
In 2010, NCHRP Project 20-24(37)F was initiated to consider establishment of a consistent, central infrastructure to store, manage and provide access to the data collected under the CPM series of projects. The scope of this project was to develop a conceptual framework and functional description of such an infrastructure, and develop a strategy for implementing and ongoing stewardship and management. This report presents the results of this project.
Recommendations for Improving the use of Traffic Incident Management Performance Measures when Comparing Operations Performance Between State DOTs | Research ReportSystem Performance
"The initial premise behind the project was to use available state Departments of Transportation (DOT) data on traffic incident response performance to provide a time series / cross section- sectional analysis of incident response performance, which could be measured based on average, median, or maximum incident response time, total incident duration or incident clearance time. The idea was that a cross-state comparison and examination of changes in performance over time might identify best practices that could be instrumental in reducing incident duration with associated benefits to travelers.
For reasons explained in this research report, the primary emphasis of this project shifted to one of developing specific recommendations that could improve Traffic Incident Management (TIM) performance measurement. While this research did result in a cross-state comparison for some of the participating agencies, the lack of standardization in collection and use of nationally adopted TIM performance measures made it difficult to draw definitive conclusions as to how the agencies are performing with respect to one another. What the research did yield is a set of recommendations that will be useful in enhancing existing agency TIM data collection and reporting efforts and the possible development of a standard approach to TIM performance data collection that will allow future efforts at cross-comparison to yield results that are consistent and more readily comparable."
