DEVELOPMENT OF A DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR IMPLEMENTATION PLANNING IN LOCAL MUNICIPALITIES

The City of Kanata, Ontario, a thriving municipality located in the National Capital Region, continues to experience fast-paced growth. Recent studies of the impacts associated with the City's growth potential revealed the need for a substantial and capital-intensive works program, estimated at $100 million, to accommodate present and anticipated growth. To this end, the City of Kanata retained Morrison Hershfield Limited, a consulting engineering firm, to develop and implement a Decision Support System (DSS) aimed at providing decision makers at the City with the necessary information to effectively manage the capital budgeting process. The DSS consists of a model-based management system and a database management system. The model-based management system includes a traffic simulation model, an economic analysis model, and a multi-objective evaluation model.
