This contribution describes a set of computer programs that has mainly been developed to demonstrate operating and possibilities of mainframe programs during lectures. The program set consists of three levels. The first level illustrates the working of the used calculation methods in detail. The second level gives the interconnection between the different parts of the transportation forecasting model. The third level demonstrates the estimation of base year origin destination (OD) matrices, estimation of deterrence functions and the non-linear weighted poisson estimation method for multidimensional matrices. The programs can also be used as workbench to be used to develop prototypes in feasibility studies. The programs set is available for micro computers working under MS-DOS.
