This paper presents a functional description of PLANiTS (Planning and Analysis Integration for Intelligent Transportation Systems). The methodology consists of a process-based computer system that supports a series of mutually interdependent steps which progress toward developing and programming transportation improvement projects. PLANiTS can translate problems and goals to performance measures, examine possible competing and complementary actions that can address the problems, systematically evaluate the impacts of actions by using appropriate knowledge-based and model-based tools, and support human communication and interaction between planning group members.
