Performance Measures and Health Index of ITS Assets Webinar

Traffic Management Center Pooled Fund Study, FHWA, and NOCoE

The TMC PFS and FHWA jointly sponsored the development of the TMC Performance Measures and Health Index of ITS Assets technical report. This report highlights examples of goals and performance measures that help define an ITS Asset Management plan. This webinar discusses ITS assets, their data types and practices of managing this data. Centralizing the collection of data on all assets into one repository, performing Life Cycle Analysis, and developing Obsolescence Plans to replace obsolete assets is also addressed. Dashboards used by several State DOTs as visualization tools to report on the condition of assets have been included. This report and additional information on the TMC PFS will be available electronically at TMC Pooled Fund STudy Webpage. Additional resources and information can be found on the NOCoE traffic management systems portal.
This webinar explores successful practices in ITS asset management such as defining goals, objectives, data sources, and performance measures. Data management and data visualization examples, useful for monitoring the health and performance of ITS assets within the TMC and in the field, is also be provided.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify possible goals of an ITS asset management plan.
  • List possible performance measures for assessing the conditions of different assets.
  • Identify potential data sources for assessing the condition of different assets.
  • List possible activities of an ITS Asset Management effort.

Target Audience
Staff involved in operations of TMCs and life cycle planning including deploying, maintaining and replacing ITS assets that support and improve TMC capabilities.

With the significance of integrating planning, management and operation to maximize benefits to the public and improve safety. For all these reasons, we are working to break the silos and work together to improve safety, reliability and efficiency of the transportation system. These tools and strategies will help us prioritize funding, implement innovative/technology-driven solutions, and improve safety and congestion. The overall goal for improved availability of mobility data is to support planning, operations, and performance measure activities. Rod is a graduate from the University of Nevada, Reno with a BS in Civil Engineering and has his Professional Engineering License with the State of Nevada. He is also a registered Professional Traffic Operations Engineer with the Transportation Professional Certification Board.

Emily Dwyer (Georgia DOT):Emily Dwyer has worked in the transportation industry for 8 years and spent the past 6 at GDOT.
