• Decision logic system that integrates current
  weather, maintenance and road condition
  information with forecasted weather and road
  surface conditions to evaluate and recommend
  treatment options

• Transforms huge volumes of weather and
  maintenance information into better decision
  support tools

• Objective – provide guidance to achieve more
  effective use of maintenance resources
