Title: Data Integration – The Pennsylvania Experience
Resource type: Research Report
Year published: 2004
Publisher: FHWA

This case study details the data integration process at Pennsylvania DOT. The central component of this process is a series of updates to the agency's core functions and the management systems that support them, which facilitate the agency's simultaneous top-down and bottom-up approaches to data integration. PennDOT has developed strategic guidelines to ensure compatability among management systems, and improved mechanisms for integration of data into the updated systems in order to reach their asset management goals. The report is part of the FHWA Office of Asset Management's series of case studies on TAM, produced with the goal of sharing information between agencies to improve efficiency.
