    15. Supplementary Notes Project performed in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration. Project Title: Evaluation and Development of Pavement Scores, Performance Models and Needs Estimates URL: http://tti.tamu.edu/documents/0-6386-3.pdf 16. Abstract This project conducted a thorough review of the existing Pavement Management Information System (PMIS) database, performance models, needs estimates, utility curves, and scores calculations, as well as a review of District practices concerning the three broad pavement types, asphalt concrete pavement, jointed concrete pavement, and continutously reinforced concrete pavement. The proposed updates to the performance models, utility curves, and decisions trees are intended to improve PMIS scores and needs estimates so that they more accurately reflect District opinions and practices, and reduce performance prediction errors. Reseachers hope that implementation of these PMIS modifications will improve its effectiveness as a decision-aid tool for the Districts. Appendices H, J, and K contain calibrated PMIS performance model coefficients for asphalt concrete pavement (ACP), continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP), and jointed concrete pavement (JCP), respectively; they are recommended for use in the existing PMIS performance models (summarized in Chapter 4). Appendices M and N contain new revised utility curves and coefficients for ACP, CRCP, and JCP pavement distresses. Appendices T, U, and V contain revised ACP, CRCP, and JCP decision trees for needs estimates determination. Appendix Z contains a recommended priority index that can be used for programming projects for preservation, rehabilitation, and reconstruction. 17. Key Words Pavement Management Information System, PMIS, Asphalt, Concrete, Ride Quality, Performance Model, Utility Curve, Decision Tree
