Problem Identification Phase in Transportation System Managementby Andrzej Tomecki, Council for Scientific and, Industrial Research, South Africa,

Abstract: This paper describes a diagnostic management tool - procedure PITS (Problem Identification in Transportation Systems) which classifies and priorities groups of the deficiencies, thus facilitating the identification of the weakest components of the transportation system. The procedure segments the system in different ways - as a set of suburbs, set of technologies applied, set of operating environments, etc. It facilitates the identification of segments which have to be improved, e.g. traffic signalisation throughout the system, or specific arterials where the deficiencies span across various technologies (signs, geometric design, traffic signals, transit). A computer program PITS has been written to execute the analysis. The program is written in Pascal and will run on any IBM-compatible personal computer.
