EVITA

Strategic Benchmarking and Key Performance Inidicator


The needs and expectations go beyond the provision of satisfying structural and surface pavement conditions. They relate to asset (investment) preservation, safety, noise, air quality, security, socioeconomic and other environmental impacts, as well as operation and maintenance costs. Key Performances Indicators (KPIs) are necessary to exert this “reporting” function and to provide a basis for sound decisions on future investment.

Description:

The main objective of the EVITA project was the development and integration of new and existing key performance indicators in the asset management process, taking into consideration the expectations of the different stakeholders.  The project was paying special attention to the development of easily understandable Environmental KPIs (E-KPIs).  The project also aimed at identifying existing best practice in the implementation of KPIs to manage the full range of road infrastructure components (pavements, structures, road furniture etc.).

Based on a comprehensive state of the art investigation, a recommendation of different E-KPIs for the following environmental areas was given: noise, air and water, natural resources and greenhouse gases (GHG).  Beside the definition of E-KPIs, a recommendation for the implementation and the use of E-KPIs will be included.

Expected Resuls:

The project has opened the door to the development of broader Asset Management Systems.  The proposed KPIs, and the framework in which they have been incorporated and interact, are available for advanced management processes.  Thanks to these KPIs, the management of Europe’s Strategic Road Network (ESRN) is facilitated and improved by using an optimised asset management system able to apply advanced management strategies.  Furthermore, since the ESRN covers a number of European states, KPIs will be designed to be consistently usable by the different operators on different road types, also taking into account the fact that the priorities and approaches in different countries may be somewhat different.  It has to be mentioned that, reciprocally, in each country, the use of these KPIs could be extended to manage the national networks.
