The Other Improvements pane includes the changes for some additional attributes during the analysis. The difference between the Improvements pane and the Other Improvements pane is that the Improvement pane is for attributes with a performance model (that is, performance index values such as IRI or roughness), whereas the Other Improvements pane is for attributes that do not vary according to a performance model (such as pavement type or pavement age).

This column provides a drop-down list that contains all non-PI-based attributes (that is, attributes that don't change according to a performance model, such as pavement age or traffic). These attributes are columns in the Network Master file and have the Restart with Treatment check box selected in the Setup PMS Analysis Columns window.

For example, a treatment could be to apply a 2" overlay. The resulting improvements from this treatment could then be to improve the IRI value, reset the pavement age to zero, and reduce bridge clearances by 2". The Improvements pane would determine how IRI value changes, and the Other Improvements pane would determine the changes to pavement age and bridge clearances.

The Other Improvements pane contains two main columns: Changing Attributes and Condition Improvement Script Other.

After selecting the desired attribute, the Condition Improvement Script Other column allows you to select a Groovy script that determines the change. The lists and contents of the Groovy Scripts can be created under the Condition Improvement Type under Groovy Script window.
