Western Australia is currently rolling out a replacement system for the management of road assets, known as ROMAN II. The package includes RAMM, the software used throughout New Zealand to manage road assets; dTIMS, the internationally renowned predictive modelling tool; as well as a full support and training arrangement. It will replace the previous ROMAN pavement management system used by the majority of WA Local Governments.
There are many different ways to view and manipulate the information stored within the ROMAN II system. This paper will briefly review the ROMAN II system, the implementation phase of the project and then present several case studies that demonstrate the potential of the system for housing a wide range of asset information, such as inventory, condition and risk ratings.
Further ways to maximise the potential of the system and how it could, and should, fit into the wider asset management picture of local government will be a key theme of the paper and ROMAN II’s place in the asset management cycle will be examined. This also includes looking at ways to make the best use of ROMAN II for the benefit of stakeholders (levels of service, etc) and to meet the organisation’s asset management goals.
