Bridge management is a systematic process of creating an inventory and managing the assets in a cost effective manner.  Indian Bridge Management System (IBMS) is developed to create an inventory of all bridge assets on National Highways (NH) in India and apply a technical logic to manage the bridge asset during its life cycle. It generates detailed inventory data and condition ratings of bridges to ensure that the dynamics of deterioration process are captured and this dynamism in the deterioration process guides the inspection and rehabilitation of bridges

After the success of IBMS 2016, it is back again for its second edition. IBMS is the world’s largest bridge database owned by a single owner with an inventory or over 136,000 bridges and culverts. Just like its first edition, 2018 edition aims to bring together bridge engineering professionals from the four sectors - academia, public sector, non-government organisations and the private sector.
