Integrated Maintenance Management System

The California Department of Transportation's Division of Maintenance is extremely proud of our continued effort to improve internal operations. Over the years, we've made significant improvements in our internal processes and the tools we use to do our work. That tradition of improvement continues today with the Integrated Maintenance Management System (IMMS) Project.

The initial phase of the IMMS Project was to replace The Department of Transportation's Maintenance Management System (MMS) and Maintenance Management System Improved (MMSI) with an asset management software. Subject matter experts from all levels of the Division of Maintenance provided expertise and input to modify the software product to suit end-users' needs.

The final phase of IMMS Implementation concluded in June of 2003. With all the districts now actively using the software, the benefits of IMMS are fully realized. Some of these benefits include:

  • Providing the Division of Maintenance with access to real-time data.
  • Allows more effective monitoring and control of materials by improving the accuracy of data that is entered and stored.
  • Makes it easier to generate reports, as Division of Maintenance staff are able to electronically share data.
  • Eliminates duplicate data entry. End-users do not need to enter the same information on multiple systems.
  • Reduces the amount of time end-users spend on administrative tasks, such as recreating information that has already been collected.
  • Makes it easier for users to effectively coordinate large projects involving multiple crews.
  • Allows users to easily determine where equipment is located and who is using it.
  • Provides a central repository for information at all levels, better enabling Headquarters to justify the need for more resources.

Thank you for your continued support of the IMMS Project!
