Abstract The interim report on this project (FHWA/lN/JHRP-84-11) presented the development of a management information system (MIS) for evaluating and improving the productivity of routine maintenance operations. The present report examines two specific activities, shallow patching and crack sealing. The statistical analyses that can be undertaken on the data produced by the MIS are described. Results of field observations are discussed and checklists are presented that can be used in identifying areas of routine maintenance productivity improvement. 17.
