In this course, you will learn about the strategies that comprise Transportation Systems Management and Operations and how they can be applied in different situations to achieve various performance objectives. The course also addresses the differences between TSMO and traditional construction projects and discusses the importance of effectively portraying the benefits of TSMO to decision-makers.
To be effectively implemented, TSMO needs to be recognized and structured as a core function of a transportation agency – more than simply a strategy or ad hoc set of activities, but as a cohesive program that is vital to the mission. In this course, you will define why TSMO is important to your organization, describe the key elements of TSMO program planning, and identify TSMO planning activities that help to develop and sustain the TSMO mission for your agency.
Audience includes state and local/city transportation agency personnel involved in traffic management, maintenance management, safety management and other operations functions for the transportation system.
This course examines the importance of communicating the value of TSMO and the challenges associated with doing that. It presents strategies for how to build a case and tell a compelling story tailored to various audiences. And it describes available tools and provides examples of how they have been used to successfully convey TSMO benefits and success stories.
Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS)
Adverse weather is our common enemy in road maintenance, traffic, and emergency operations. Transportation agencies are well aware of the operational and logistical challenges of such weather. Many agencies are fighting this age-old battle by implementing Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS). This requires that critical personnel be well-informed of the impacts and considerations of deploying RWIS. The goal of this course is to, not only discuss RWIS initiatives and considerations, but through workshops, exercises, and self-assessments, explore individual state and local deployment challenges which will leave participants with an action plan tailored for their specific needs.
Archived Data for Planning Operations & Safety
This course is designed to help you understand the benefits of creating an open and accessible data archive of your agency’s data. It will also explain the challenges you might face in trying to make your agency’s data more open and available to others, and ways in which you can mitigate those challenges. After showing you some real-world examples of how data can be leveraged for better decision making and analysis, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of building your very own archive, leveraging technologies that others have developed, or paying a consultant to help you with your archiving needs.
