This on-line training workshop will cover the main technical issues regarding Road Bridge Management, Inspection and Maintenance. The contents will be based on international standards as well as the hands-on experience of the course instructors. The workshop is addressed at highway agency executives and private sector contractors. The topics of the workshop go from the basic knowledge of Road Bridges and their main characteristics, to the visual inspection activities, until the most up-to-date concepts of Bridge Asset Management.
This course is about learning to design with the human in mind. The human is the most complex and variable element of the transportation system, but professionals who learn the human’s design parameters and how to make infrastructure that is compatible with these parameters will help deliver substantial gains in road safety during the second Decade of Action. The first half of the course provides a theoretical foundation and grounding in understanding human limitations, how humans process information, how humans complete the driving tasks, and how humans end up making errors.
The IRF Global R2T Conference & Exhibition is the new international meeting point where leading industry innovators, researchers, and stakeholders acquire essential engineering & business insights, and help build tomorrow’s transportation infrastructure today.
Project Management is the discipline of keeping projects on schedule, on budget, while also achieving all the projects objectives originally intended. It does this by detecting defects early when they are least costly to fix. For projects with a technology (ITS) component, there is a lot of overlap between project management and systems engineering.
The Foundation level course and certification is step 1 of the APMG PPP Certification Program which aims to foster a common minimum level of knowledge and understanding amongst individuals working on PPPs or those interested in learning about PPPs, regardless of discipline or sector. APMG awards the CP3P credential to individuals who successfully pass the three examinations: (1) Foundation and Overview Stage, (2) Preparation Stage, and (3) Execution Stage. APMG’s PPP Certification is recognized by leading development agencies, such as the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and others.
This on-line training workshop will cover the principles, concepts, components, techniques and benefits of managing road infrastructure assets. The contents will be based on international practitioner handbooks as well as the hands-on experience of the course instructors. The workshop will teach the most relevant best practices as they relate to strategic asset management, tactical & technical asset management planning and operational asset management & service delivery.
Pavement Management systems have been designed to provide information on the functional and structural condition of roads so that road owners can offer a smooth and safe ride to road users at the lowest possible cost. They also provide reliable information to decision makers about the condition of the road network for maintenance and rehabilitation planning and funding. However, the problem with PMS systems has traditionally been that they have supported reactive maintenance whereby the road is repaired by mainly standard methods after a specified amount of visible damage has occurred on the pavement.
The main goal of this online training is to introduce the fundamentals of practical data science relevant to transportation and roadway experts. Various aspects, such as the use of different data processing tools, data visualization, data mining and artificial intelligence will be discussed through online hands-on tutorials.
This on-line training course will focus on how to manage and implement Performance-based contracts to help road agencies meet their desired outcomes . Agencies that are seeking more effective mechanisms for privatizing maintenance programs will profit by sending key staff to learn from the experience of counterparts in the public and private sectors and from international financing institutions
This course will cover the development and use of needs-based ITS architectures to support the planning and deployment of ITS systems. Then it will illustrate the selection and specification of ITS technology standards and their testing to support interoperable systems.
The 18th IRF World Meeting aspires to be a global summit & technology showcase that is both uniquely relevant to a wide cross-section of road mobility stakeholders, and focused on delivering solutions to the world’s pressing mobility questions.
