Performance analysis uses pavement management history information to provide a feedback mechanism to improve the predictive capabilities of pavement performance models. The primary repository for data used in performance analysis is the Performance Master.

The main difference between Performance Master and Network Master is that Performance Master has an EFF_YEAR column, and can be considered an archive or “history” of Network Master’s data from each year.

Performance Master usually contains the exact same column as Network Master, and typically follow the same data aggregation rules. Normally, each year after the Network Master is finalized, the user runs the process to update Performance Master, which will append Network Master’s data to Performance Master.

Out of the box, Performance Master Data window is located in Analysis > Performance Analysis > Performance Master menu. The table is named PERFORMANCE_MASTER. The columns in the table are almost the same as NETWORK_MASTER, with an addition of EFF_YEAR column.

The configuration for Performance Master is essentially the same as Network Master: 1) expanding the existing PERFORMANCE_MASTER table to include the needed columns (typically same set of columns as Network Master); and 2) Update their Update Target Table SQLs so the data can be updated.

Out of the box, the system has provided a system job to update Performance Master once all the configuration is done. It includes both “copying management sections into Performance Master” and “Run Update Target Table on Performance Master”. The system job is named “Pavement Analyst: Create and Update Performance Master”. Before running the job, make sure to specify which effective year (EFF_YEAR) the data is by updating the argument in the first executable “Finest Partition By Column”.
