... 5   The NCHRP 08-118 research team developed a detailed work plan with activities to assess available risk assessment tools and methodologies. Then, the team prioritized those tools and methodologies, assessed impediments to their use, devised studies to test the methods, and tested the methods with actual state DOT examples.

... 6 Risk Assessment Techniques for Transportation Asset Management: Conduct of Research Several trends were evident from the literature review: • BMSs, PMSs, and off-the-shelf risk tools have latent potential to help state DOTs make riskbased asset management decisions, but that potential has not been used widely. • State DOTs used condition data from the National Bridge Inventory (NBI)

... 8 Risk Assessment Techniques for Transportation Asset Management: Conduct of Research • Benefit of the pilot for a DOT • Challenges in pilot study setup and use • The methodology of some pilot studies was long and detailed, so that state DOT practitioners could apply or adapt the methodology to similar analyses. These protocols are described in the appendices.
