Design

In this phase ICM stakeholders will define and document the details of how the ICM requirements will be satisfied both in terms of high-level design (documented in a systems architecture) and component-level design. Design specifications should be shared with all ICM stakeholders.

Integrated Corridor Management: Implementation Guide and Lessons Learned The purpose of this ICM Implementation Guide is to provide information to ICM “early adopters” on how to plan, develop, deploy, operate, and maintain an ICM system (ICMS). The Guide describes the phases in the ICMS life cycle and the associated deliverables for each phase, focusing on how the ICM Pioneer Sites addressed each phase. The guide also discusses typical issues (lessons learned) that arose during the U.S. DOT’s research initiative. Transportation professionals who will be involved in some stage of the ICM lifecycle can use this document to gain a high-level overview of the process steps needed to develop, implement and operate an ICM system. It can also help transportation professionals at all levels (Federal, State and local) who are generally interested to learn more about what ICM is and how to implement it. Transportation project managers who wish to implement an ICMS in their region 2/15
