Objective

The Alaska DOT&PF , like all other State DOT's, is required to maintain a Qualified Products List (QPL), as a method for identifying products that have been approved for use in DOT construction. These products range from bridge piers and guardrails to paint and cones, and they must often meet strict criteria. Each potential QPL product has to go through a lengthy paperwork process from initial submission to review, testing, and approval/denial. The Alaska DOT wanted to streamline this process as much as possible using todays available technologies. Applied Microsystems was called upon to develop a secure, web-based app that would replace the labor-intensive workflow and streamline processes for all stakeholders: DOT staff, manufacturers, and contractors. We called it the eQPL (electronic Qualified Products List).




Process

  • AMI Project Manager and Web Developers meet with DOT to formulate scope and requirements
  • AMI web developers develop code that accounts for ~80% of use cases
  • DOT gives AMI green flag for web application construction
  • AMI releases beta version of eQPL application for DOT use
  • DOT reports back on functionality/problems/questions
  • AMI fixes bugs and releases first full version of eQPL
  • eQPL currently live and fully operational



The Road to Success

Our deliberate and careful planning process has paid off once again: The Alaska DOT is currently managing its Qualified Products List via our web-based application. Manufacturers can now enter their products into the QPL queue online, contractors can browse through approved products, and DOT staff can easily keep track of and manage products in the QPL. Not only are workflow processes streamlined, the DOT saves on paper and the large costs of time and labor. Our web-based solution has been so successful that we have decided to offer it to other state DOT's. Interested?
