WORKSHOP ON QUICK-RESPONSE AND SKETCH-PLANNING TECHNIQUES. QUICK-RESPONSE AND SKETCH-PLANNING TECHNIQUES: STATE OF THE ART

Urban travel analysis historically has been designed to evaluate regional transportation systems and provide design volumes. Emphasis has moved to methods to aid in making quick decision trade-offs of projects. There is also a need to screen alternatives quickly so more detailed analysis can concentrate on the most feasible transportation improvement alternatives. The paper examines the state of the art and then addresses: (1) What quick response is; (2) What some examples of currently available methods are; (3) How to take advantage of current technology. It is concluded that at one end of the scale, quick response is as simple as taking known methods and converting them to quick-response methods, giving little attention to accuracy. The ideas of quick response need to be institutionalized with manuals, training sessions and case studies. Rapid adoption of modern technology should occur--microcomputers, digitizing and plotting capabilities. Research funding should be provided for projects to develop quick response techniques in data collection, travel estimation, and use of new technologies.
