The present work uses the combination of GIS tools and AHP technique to define the maintenance priorities in an Alpine area in Italy. The use of integrated GIS tools and AHP analysis shows that different aspects can be effectively integrated so the approach could be used to improve the administration and management of effective maintenance planning. AHP gives the opportunity to the stakeholders to analyze different scenarios, defining the importance of the relative function of each road. The results shows different ranking in the management priorities according with different objective and given economical budget.

Abstract

The present work uses the combination of GIS tools and AHP technique to define the maintenance priorities in an Alpine area in Italy. The use of integrated GIS tools and AHP analysis shows that different aspects can be effectively integrated so the approach could be used to improve the administration and management of effective maintenance planning. AHP gives the opportunity to the stakeholders to analyze different scenarios, defining the importance of the relative function of each road. The results shows different ranking in the management priorities according with different objective and given economical budget. The comparison between the optimal and the actual maintenance intervention and resource allocation can be used as a basis for the future planning strategies.
