Bridge management system with an integrated comprehensive LCC tool
2012 (English)In: fib Symposium 2012: Concrete Structures for Sustainable Community - Proceedings, 2012, 345-348 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Although many bridge management systems (BMSs) contain some forms of life-cycle costing (LCC), the use of LCC in bridge engineering is scarce. This paper presents a comprehensive integrated LCC implementation scheme, taking into account the bridge investment and management process in Sweden. The Swedish Bridge and Tunnel Management System (BaTMan) will be introduced as a case study. The paper clarifies how a BMS with an integrated comprehensive LCC tool can assist decision makers at all levels and within all phases in selecting the most cost-effective alternative.
