Operations Management Lifecycle

Planning for Operations

Cambridge Systematics is a recognized leader in working with clients to identify and prioritize needs, develop detailed plans, and build consensus with stakeholder groups to improve transportation operations. We assist agencies in incorporating operations in the planning process, for example:

  • Prepared an ITS predeployment plan in Michigan to define ITS deployment and operation.
  • Using traffic simulation, developed a financial plan for California’s Transportation Management Systems resulting in securing multi-year funding for Operations.
