Useful to Transportation engineers and other professionals at Federal, State and local government agencies interested to optimize their multimodal transportation networks through ICM.
Abstract This document presents the experimental plan for applying the ICM AMS methodology to a Test Corridor (San Francisco California's I-880 corridor). The experimental plan was developed to test and validate AMS methodologies. This experimental plan identifies strategies, scenarios, and procedures used to tailor AMS general approaches to the Test Corridor. It also presents a framework for integrating existing tools into a internally consistent yet flexible system approach that can support the Test Corridor ICM functional requirements. See related documents for more information: "ICM AMS Methodology" and "Test Corridor Model Description" also in the Knowledgebase.
How to Use Transportation engineers in the field seeking to implement ICM can use this document as a guide to understanding the ICM AMS framework, and applying it to their corridors' needs. Readers can tailor the AMS approach used in the Test Corridor to their corridor's needs, unique conditions and existing tools. Readers will improve their general understanding of ICM, modeling and simulation in general, and the unique contributions that the ICM AMS approach offers corridor managers seeking to optimize their transportation networks.
