Their application to urban networks tends to be complex, given the wide variety of urban pavement types (concrete, asphalt, and paving tiles) and their different functions (traffic, pedestrian, or both). A flexible method that can address the complexity of different areas is therefore proposed in this paper through a case study of pavement conditions. Hence the interest of this new approach for pavement management that employs a multi-criteria method adaptable to various urban environments: the Integrated Value Model for Structural Assessment (MIVES). It incorporates the Value Function (VF) concept in an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), combining both Multi-criteria Decision Making and Multi-Attribute Utility Theory. The methodology is presented and its sensitivity is evaluated by means of a case study in the city of Barcelona. The quality index of various pavements is assessed through a survey of pavement distresses in a systematic categorisation of urban network pavement categories that is accurate, consistent, and repeatable.
