This report presents a proposed framework that uses performance measures to quantify the changes in pavement performance in terms of condition, service life, and life-cycle costs. Additionally, the guide identifies alternate performance measures and describes a process for assessing their appropriateness for use in quantifying the effects of preservation treatments on pavement performance. Incorporating these measures in asset management systems would provide a means for selecting the appropriate preservation treatments and optimizing the allocation of resources.
