Applying Archived Operations Data in Transportation Planning: A Primer
Long Description for Figure 2. Diagram. Flow chart of performance-based planning and programming.
This figure is a high level data flow diagram that shows the basic process of performance-based planning and programming. The chart has three distinct, interconnected sections: 1) Planning; 2) Programming; and, 3) Implementation and Evaluation. The Planning section has two subsections: a) Strategic Direction; and, b) Analysis. The diagram flows along the following process:
Step 1. PLANNING.
This step has two parts and involves the following:
Step 2. Programming – What will it take?
This step has three parts and involves the following:
Step 3. Implementation and Evaluation – How did we go?
This step also has three parts and involves the following:
Steps 2 and 3 are connected with a double-sided arrow which implies they can flow back and forth with each other. A solid arrow from Step 3 flows back to Step 1.
A dotted line, labelled "Continuous Feedback," from Step 3 returns to both subsections of Step 1; i.e. Strategic Direction, and Analysis.
A solid line, labeled "Data" and "ublic Involvement," extends from the top to the bottom of the flowchart.
