THE RANGE OF TASKS OF THE TRAFFIC ENGINEER

DAS AUFGABENSPEKTRUM DES VERKEHRSINGENIEURS

The professional designation "traffic engineer" is not yet related to a generally recognised range of tasks or concepts. The increasing difficulties in implementing planned measures in the traffic sector do however show that the conventional limitation of function to the employment of purely technical ways of thinking is not purposeful. In addition to (but not in place of) technical viewpoints economic and systems-analytic considerations must also be taken into account, which moreover must be explained by suitable publicity work in a manner easily understood by the decision makers. The quantitative preparation of the arguments often requires the employment of mathematical models, which as a rule can be mastered only by means of electronic data processing. These requirements lead to the catalogue of the tasks of a traffic engineer, which finally is summarised to form the framework of a training programme for traffic engineers. (TRRL)
