Metro Model: Innovative Data Sources Inform Truck Tour Framework for Dynamic Portland Region
Long Description for Figure 1. Diagram. Metro model design framework.
This flow diagram contains one existing component, new components, and outputs. The Freight Model data flow is as follows: Firm Synthesis data (a new component) flows into Synthetic Firms (an output), which in turn populates both the Commercial Services Touring Model and the National Supply Chain Model, both new components. The Commercial Services Touring Model then flows into the Truck Trip Lists/Truck Trip Tables (output).The National Supply Chain Model flows into the Shipments output, which in turn flows into the Freight Truck Touring Model (a new component), before flowing into the Truck Trip Lists/Truck Trip Tables. The Truck Trip Lists/Truck Trip Tables data flows into a new component labeled Assignment to Regional Highway Network. The Passenger model, the only existing component, flows into the Passenger Vehicle Trip Tables output, which in turn also flows into the Assignment to Regional Highway Network.
