MS2 New Modules: Sneak Peak
MS2 has been developed several exciting new software applications to support our current clients. This post provides an overview of these new applications.
Permitted Lane Closure System (PLCS) was originally developed for Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). PLCS will support ODOT’s efforts to manage traffic flow in work zones during construction or repair. The system will use algorithms to determine the best outcomes for traffic flow and will display in both tabular and graphic format. The PLCS will also help with future planning as agencies manage larger and more complex road networks.
Transportation Asset Management System (TAMS) was originally developed for Montana Department of Transportation (MDT). TAMS will support MDT in their efforts to manage equipment (counters, modems, sensors, etc.) inventory. Active and retired equipment can be tracked at a location along with associated costs for maintenance or replacement. This application also integrates with MS2’s Work Order Tracking System (WOTS) to help the agency manage repair and improvement projects.
Traffic Forecast Monitoring System (TFMS) was originally developed for Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). TFMS will support ODOT’s efforts to enhance future planning of (new?) road segment implementation. The application was designed as a predictive module to guide an agency in forecasting 20-year increment scenarios. Data will be uploaded to the system to be processed through algorithms and exported to the agency for review and implementation.
