Transportation Systems Engineering for Planning and Evaluation

  • Ennio Cascetta
Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 49)

Abstract

Transportation systems engineering can be defined as a discipline aimed at the functional design of physical and/or organizational actions on transportation systems. Each set of coordinated, internally consistent actions is referred to as a project or plan. The transportation system engineer must also evaluate the main potential effects of the project(s) to test their technical suitability and to support intermediate and final decision-makers.
