Abstract

With a view to the development of a life-cycle approach to earth retaining walls, as well as an optimal management of the road assets as a whole, this paper presents a novel framework for the assessment of a large stock of earth retaining structures in a context of limited financial and human resources. In order to adequate the system for the number of structures to be managed a large inventory campaign was previously conducted. These results and how they helped to shape the framework are briefly discussed. Being a proposal for a systematic management of infrastructure assets it was developed according to Business Process Management discipline, namely the Business Process Model and Notation, as specified in the standard ISO/IEC 9510:2013. The developed framework is considered as a management process, with specific intervenient, interrelated activities, specific inputs, and standard outputs.
