Cost Effective Design Processes

  • Robert L. Gordon


Within the context of the design and life cycle operation of a freeway ITS project, this chapter discusses systems engineering requirements for federal aid projects, and the adaptation of these requirements to the design and project development process used by many agencies. It describes objectives for freeway management systems and their relationship to project benefits as well as methodologies for the evaluation of design alternatives, project feasibility, and project life cycle evaluation.
