Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS)

Make quick, informed winter road maintenance decisions with help from DTN

Motorists rely on you and your road maintenance crew to keep their roadways clear and safe when winter weather strikes. Take command of your operations with a Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS) from DTN. MDSS is a decision support tool that integrates road weather forecasts, maintenance rules of practice and resource data to provide winter maintenance managers with recommended road treatment strategies.

The MDSS system analyzes current and forecasted weather and pavement conditions to determine what is expected to happen on the roadways in the near future. Our solution provides you with accurate timing and intensity of approaching storms, as well as recommendations on the timing, type, and amount of chemical needed to prevent snow and ice from building up on the roadway. It also monitors pavement and bridge temperature, along with snow depth and blowing snow potential.

Better maintenance decisions result in better cost management

Winter road maintenance can be very expensive, as labor, fuel, and chemical costs quickly add up. Better decision making can help you set smarter work schedules and material applications, saving precious budget dollars. Provide your team, in the office and in the driver’s seats, with highly accurate precipitation and pavement forecasts to help them make smart road maintenance decisions before, during, and after every storm.
