DescriptionThis new online training course provides the fundamentals required to understand, perform, and interpret the results from multimodal operational analysis and performance evaluations. Several of the most commonly used evaluation and analysis methods are presented with real-world examples. The course focuses on how to develop an appropriate set of performance measures to reliably compute the gains in performance to the transportation system (and/or subsystems) attributable to a project, policy, or program of interest. It also covers the data sources and data reliability, analytic (evaluation) methods and their strengths and limitations, and the overall reliability of the analytical results. Click here for a detailed course outline.
- Understanding the scope, scale and focus of your program's needs and the evaluation process
- What decision processes are driving the need for the performance evaluations?
- What are the resulting performance measured being used for?
- Selecting appropriate performance measures, and evaluation methods
- Overview of the various analytical and empirical techniques for transportation system performance evaluations & monitoring programs
- Potential data sources: inputs to the analysis process
- Reliability of analytic methods, empirical methods, and the data we use as inputs
- Combining empirical & analytical procedures for better results
- How to choose data sources & evaluation methods for your particular project needs
- Analytical and Simulation Software Tools - Tool types, criteria for selection, and performance measures (with examples)
- Analysis techniques & data sources - how to choose best data & methods for your particular project needs
What You Will LearnAttendees will learn about the various analytic methods that can be used to measure the performance of transportation systems and isolated system elements (like freeway segments and signalized intersections). Attendees will also learn which performance measures are best suited for different analysis purposes - why we choose the performance measures we do for a particular project. Upon completion of the course, they will be able to gauge the reliability of the performance estimation process, the underlying inputs and the resulting (calculated) performance measures. This course uses a combination of lectures, case-study examples, and classroom exercises to convey tools and logic for tackling traffic problems. It provides a sound technical foundation for additional specialized courses such as traffic signal operations, freeway operations, and roadway capacity analysis.
Who Should AttendThis course is intended for transportation planners, transportation engineers and technicians at local, regional, and state agencies, as well as transportation planning consultants. Both new and experienced planners and engineers will benefit from this course. It will also benefit board members, managers, and others involved with developing, reviewing and/or approving transportation performance monitoring programs, corridor improvement plans, or transportation system performance evaluation efforts.
