ITS Architecture Use and Maintenance Workshop
This two-day workshop will help you better understand how your own regional ITS architecture can be used in regional and statewide transportation planning and project development. You will also gain greater insight into the decisions and the process steps involved in maintaining your regional ITS architecture. ITS "champions" and key stakeholders from each region will participate, and each workshop will have two to four regions. This is not a training course, but rather an interactive workshop facilitated by ARC-IT Team using interactive lectures, discussions, and group exercises. Participants should bring a copy of their regional ITS architecture to the workshop as it will be used throughout the workshop.
- Public sector professionals responsible for regional or statewide transportation planning, regional ITS architecture development and maintenance, as well as those planning, designing or generating specifications for ITS projects.
- Private sector consultants under contract to the public sector for developing or maintaining a regional ITS architecture, ITS planning, and project development.
Discussion in each workshop will relate closely to the Regional ITS Architecture Guidance Document, focusing on the technical and institutional issues that may arise when regions and states use their ITS architecture and maintain it over time. Specific objectives include understanding:
- How the regional ITS architecture supports aspects of transportation planning
- ITS Strategic Plans and their potential role in support of long range planning
- Stakeholders and how to engage them using your ITS architecture
- How the architecture supports programming and budgeting of ITS projects
- How to use your architecture to identify potential ITS projects
- How the architecture relates to systems engineering
- How to use the architecture during project implementation
- Decisions and the process steps to follow to maintain the architecture.
