Integrated information system supporting road design, evaluation and construction

Abstract: Road design, evaluation (analysis) and construction are closely connected processes in which design and analysis are iterated to converge on the optimal solution. Many errors and delays frequently appear when data is exchanged between particular tasks; inter-task connections are therefore of great importance for the quality of the final product.The article describes an integrated information system which is intended to support all important stages of the road lifecycle: design, evaluation (through different analysis procedures), and construction. The concept of the system is object oriented. However, existing program packages are included to solve some common tasks. The system includes conventional relational database as well as spatial database with all relevant GIS functionality. Since particular tasks are often executed at different places and in different companies, the interconnections are supported by a special metafile which contains all specific data about the project as it progresses towards the construction phase.
