The objectives of the inland navigation systems analysis program are to develop within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers the capability to optimize the design and schedule for implementation of future improvements to U.S. inland waterways and improve the operating efficiency of inland navigation. The program is an integrated system of four computer models, data, and planning procedures to (a) forecast commodity flows, (b) predict modal shares of traffic, (c) simulate the monitor inland waterway transportation (d) predict economic impacts of inland waterway improvements, and (e) select the best size, location, and timing of inland waterway improvements.
