dTIMS™—IPMP's Pavement Management Software

« Back to Services Page

The Iowa Pavement Management System uses Deighton Total Infrastructure Management System (dTIMS™) software. dTIMS™ is produced by Deighton, a computer company specializing in asset management software.

dTIMS™ Features

dTIMS™ offers a set of tools for implementing a custom database and custom analysis models that allow the user to customize the software to their own pavement and asset management needs.

dTIMS™ allows the user to

  • develop an inventory of physical assets and to relate them by location
  • select between 5 different budget categories to match the budget of their agency
  • enter their own performance parameters for use in their pavement management system
  • dTIMS™ can also perform life cycle analysis on those assets, looking into the future to determine the best maintenance action for each asset with regard to budget constraints.

The dTIMS™ generates recommended projects by year, recommended treatments by project and year, and overall summaries of condition, backlog, treatment cost, and treatment length.

Cost

The cost of dTIMS™ for local agencies in Iowa has been subsidized by the Iowa DOT and is $1000 for the software itself and $1000 per year for maintenance and updates on the software.

The dTIMS™ generates recommended projects by year, recommended treatments by project and year, and overall summaries of condition, backlog, treatment cost, and treatment length.
