HDMGlobal Newsletter

Welcome to the January 2017 Newsletter. 

In this newsletter, we would like to inform you about an update to the HDM-4 software, introduce a new product, HDM-Sentry, and to inform you about an exciting international conference on HDM-4 being organised for 26th / 27th September 2017 in Santiago, Chile.

New HDMGlobal Website. The new HDMGlobal website is now live so please go and have a look. The website contains information about the HDM-4 Version 2 software, purchase information, as well as a knowledge base to answer common issues faced by users. There is also a section giving some example studies that have been carried out using HDM-4, as well as a growing list of technical papers that have been published on subjects that may be of interest.

HDM-Sentry. HDM-4 Sentry provides a simplified interface to enable non-technical users or those unfamiliar with HDM-4 to carry out an analysis of a road section to determine the economic and engineering benefits of different maintenance and improvement investments. HDM-Sentry uses simplified high-level text descriptors for many of the inputs which are automatically translated into the detailed data used for the analysis. This tool provides an accessible analysis method to decision makers, non-engineers and those with no HDM-4 experience but still uses the full HDM-4 analysis framework and models to provide robust results. To learn more visit the website.

HDM-4 Version 2.10. This update introduces the possibility for users to use HDM-4 with the new HDM-Sentry software tool. It also provides updates to the concrete incremental road deterioration and work effects models that have undergone further testing and improvements. The full list of changes are described here. Updates are free to registered licence holders. Please visit the update page to review instructions to receive your download instructions.

The conference is being organised to provide an opportunity to meet with users, experts and specialists in the use and application of the HDM-4 and professionals and companies working in the field of road infrastructure management. The conference will present examples and case studies of applications and experiences of using HDM-4 for a range of studies with a Latin American focus, although the subject areas will be of interest internationally. The conference will appeal to users of the HDM-4 tool as well as decision makers, consultants, academics and all those managers of initiatives and road infrastructure projects.
