ZEN, SUPERMODELS AND HEAVY VEHICLES: ABSTRACT ANALYSIS TO ENSURE OUTCOMES

Road and Transport Agencies generally start their process of system design with a concept stage. One of the weaknesses of this approach is that, whilst the ideas and concepts are captured, the conceptual model within which they must work is not necessarily defined. Logical Reference Models attempt to overcome such flaws by defining the relationships between requirements, standards, outcomes, entities and operations. By defining these variables/parameters, their relationships and their interactions, any particular scenario (case- study) may be mapped within the model. By comparing results of different mapping's, similarities and gaps between case studies are easily identified and allow robust analysis of any proposed implementation within a high-level framework. This paper will present one road transport agency's experiences in developing such a model and applying it to the domain of heavy vehicles to determine feasibility issues for implementation of electronic compliance monitoring implementation, ie. "black boxes for truck tracking". (a) For the covering entry of this conference, please see ITRD abstract no. E208315.
