PLAN is a decision-support environment providing organized assessment and comparison for any number of competing projects, solutions or alternative designs, which can be assessed and pitched against each other numerically as well as visually. PLAN was designed as the central planning framework of the AWARE-P infrastructure asset management methodology, where planning alternatives or competing projects are measured up and compared, through selected performance, risk and cost metrics, through interactive numerical and 2D/3D graphical information display. It may also be used to compare different systems or sub-systems for diagnosis and prioritization. It was created as a technical tool, but just as importantly as a negotiation and communication vehicle. As in the AWARE-P asset management approach, emphasis placed on evaluating impacts over the long term and in multiple dimensions (service, economics, social), and on quantifying the impact of those interventions in a defendable, repeatable and transparent way.
