Bridge inspection and maintenance system : BIM Level 1 inspection manual. Version 4

Description

The bridge inspection program is part of a comprehensive inventory and management data system. The three basic elements of the system are inventory, inspection and maintenance. The total system has developed in stages over a period of time. The Bridge Information System (BIS) was developed in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s and the Culvert Inventory System (CIS) was added later. In the mid 1980’s development was started on the Bridge Inspection and Maintenance System (BIM) and in 1987 the inspection component of BIM was introduced. Further development on the system has taken place over the years. In the late 1990’s, a corporate decision was made to combine all the Department information systems into a corporate database within the Transportation Infrastructure Management System (TIMS). The bridge inventory system (BIS and CIS) and the inspection system component (BIM) were moved into TIMS in 2005. The manual (version 3.0) was developed to detail the operation of the BIM inspection component and incorporates changes that were made during the transfer to TIMS.
