In this paper, the main objective is to show how to obtain precise concrete road design using an information systems and artificial intelligence (ISAI) applied in the numerical design stage of a plate on elastic solid system. In this system, finite difference solution for very large plate on elastic solid is used. In this solution, computations take only few minutes using computers with very low capacity. In this paper, the logic of solution is determined according to the principles of finite difference method using an electronic interior control subsystem. In this deterministic approach, plate is divided into small parts. One of these parts, which is named intelligent object (IO), is solved under traffic loadings by ISAI technology. Then, the plate surface is scanned by IO, and precise solution for plate thickness is determined by the system. The system incorporates ISAI technology.
