Performance Management of Traffic Signal Systems is a two-day course that provides a systematic approach for selecting, developing and reporting meaningful performance measures that are integral to an objectives and performance based approach to traffic signal system management, operation and maintenance. This course explores stakeholder expectations to support development of linkages between measures of effectiveness and agency objectives. Current methods for data collection, data management, development and reporting of performance measures will be discussed and explored through interactive exercises.
Many agencies perform project-level performance assessments intended to quantify: 1) the degree to which an operational problem might exist, and/or 2) the user benefits associated with deploying a new traffic signal timing plan or implementing a new treatment at an intersection or in a corridor. Generally, these assessments consist of analytical studies and/or field studies. While important, these assessments are often limited in scope and provide only cursory insight into the overall effectiveness of traffic signal program activities in the context of agency mission, goals, and objectives.
The goal of this course is to assist agencies in the development and implementation of a process for measuring and communicating the performance and effectiveness of traffic signal systems, both at the project and program level.
Professionals involved in the design, management, operation or maintenance of traffic signal systems. This includes design engineers, operations engineers and technicians (advanced) of state/local agencies, consultants, and FHWA Operations staff.
