HIGHWAY PROGRAMMING IN THE NATIONS CAPITAL - A PROGRESS REPORT

THE RESULTS AND PROGRESS TO DATE ARE REPORTED OF A COORDINATED RESEARCH EFFORT UNDERTAKEN BY THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND TRAFFIC IN ANTICIPATION OF A RAPIDLY APPROACHING NEED FOR AN IMPROVED OBJECTIVE AND PRACTICAL METHOD OF PRIORITY PROGRAM SCHEDULING AND PROCEDURES. THREE MAJOR AREAS OF INFORMATIONAL REQUIREMENTS WERE DEVELOPED AS FOLLOWS'/1/ MULTI-PROJECT SCHEDULES AND RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS FOR LONG-RANGE SCHEDULING OF TOTAL PROGRAM, /2/ INDIVIDUAL PROJECT SCHEDULES AND RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS FOR DETAILED PROJECT CONTROL, AND /3/ MONITORING, REPORTING AND UPDATING PROCEDURES. AS A RESULT OF THE NEED TO IMPROVE THE BASIS FOR PROJECTING FUTURE TIME AND RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS, A DATA BANK PROCEDURE WAS ADOPTED TO STORE FACTUAL HISTORIC DATA ON COMPLETED PROJECTS AND TO PROVIDE A MORE OBJECTIVE BASIS FOR FUTURE ESTIMATES. BY DEVELOPING COMMON STANDARDS OF MEASUREMENT FOR SPECIFIC DATA GATHERED FROM ACTUAL EXPERIENCE ON PAST PROJECTS, THE DATA BANK PROCEDURE SHOULD MAKE A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO IMPROVED FORECASTING OF SCHEDULE REQUIREMENTS.
