Business Process Frameworks for Transportation Operations
Active Demand Management Capability Maturity Framework Tool
Welcome to the Active Demand Management Capability Maturity Framework (CMF) tool. This framework is intended for agencies or regions to assess current capabilities with respect to advancing the role of demand management practices as part of TSMO. When the current capabilities are determined, the tool provides a list of concrete actions for agencies to raise their capabilities to the desired levels.
Enabling travelers to make informed decisions along their entire trip requires proactive and regionally integrated approach to managing the system, linking different public and private agencies, functions, and roles. The trip chain represents the complete series of decisions made by a traveler throughout a trip from the choice of travel destination to the final choice of facility. Managing the entire trip chain broadly requires two functions:
Traditionally, separate unconnected programs are responsible for these functions in a region. For example, a metropolitan area may have a transportation demand management (TDM) program, and several other agencies are responsible for traffic management. Connecting these programs provides the opportunity to actively manage demand both for recurring and non-recurring events.
This framework assesses the ability in a region to create strong linkages between entities involved in traffic and demand management to support stronger consideration of active demand management for TSMO.
