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

Many successful applications have been made of quick-response (q-r) procedures. These were made with a full understanding of the limitations of the procedures and results were viewed in the proper context. Although some accuracy may have been sacrificed, the general consensus is that q-r techniques do provide reasonable results in a realistic time frame. Recommendations are made for enhancements and further development: (1) Simplify methods for defining networks for computerized traffic assignment; (2) Develop easy-to-use software for microcomputer applications; (3) Select transferable parameters in q-r applications; (4) Given the common problem of evaluating traffic impact of new development, more complete information is needed on trip-making characteristics of shopping centers, industrial parks and similar facilities; (5) Determine transferability of data from external traffic analysis; (6) Case studies should illustrate applications of q-r procedures.
