The system presented in this manual consists of the following components:

a. Network identification. The process of dividing installation pavement networks into manageable segments for the purpose of performing pavement inspection and determining M&R requirements and priorities (chap 2).

b. Pavement condition inspection. THE process of inspecting installation pavement to determine existing distresses and their severity and to compute the pavement condition index (PCI)-a rating system that measures the pavement integrity and surface operational condition (chap 3).

c. M&R determination. The process of establishing M&R requirements and priorities based on inspection data, PCI, and other relevant information such as traffic, loading, and pavement structural composition (chap 4).

d. Economic analyses of M&R alternatives. The process of using life-cycle cost analysis to rank various M&R alternatives (chap 5).

e. Data management. A manual system (card system) for handling data is described in chapter 6. An automated system is described briefly in chapter 7.


The purpose of this manual is to describe a pavement maintenance management system (PAVER) for use at military installations. This system is available in either a manual or computerized mode. The maintenance standards prescribed should protect Government property with an economical and effective expenditure of maintenance funds commensurate with the functional requirements and the planned future use of the facilities. The majority of pavements on Army installations were built many years ago, and thus, many have reached their economic design life. Because of limited maintenance funds, timely and rational determination of maintenance and repair (M&R) needs and priorities are very important factors. These factors can be determined by using PAVER as described in this manual. The use of PAVER by personnel who have the responsibility for pavement maintenance should assure uniform, economical, and satisfactory surfaced area maintenance and repair. When information in this publication varies from that contained in the latest issue of Federal or Military specifications, the specifications shall apply. Reference to Federal, Military or other specifications is to the current issues of these specifications as identified by their basic number(s).


This manual applies to Army elements responsible for maintenance and repair (M&R) of asphalt or concretesurfaced roads, streets, parking lots, and hardstands. Airfield pavement management is covered by AFR 93-5 which becomes part of this manual by reference. (See app A.)
