Retrofitting a Concept of Operations into an Established Statewide ATMS

Using a proper systems engineering process for implementing ITS is now commonplace. However, mature statewide DOT-managed systems, were not implemented using systems engineering. Georgia’s NaviGAtor ATMS, initially deployed in 1996, is an example. Recently, a Georgia Regional ITS Architecture was developed as well as a Systems Engineering Management Plan. However, GDOT and each State and local agency continued to operate ITS somewhat independently. Each had a working set of policies and procedures to support ITS operations, but had no written unifying operations concept. GDOT recognized that in order to support future growth and expansion of ITS in Georgia, all ITS stakeholders needed to work together to meet common goals. Therefore, a GDOT ITS Concept of Operations was developed to facilitate this need and help GDOT move forward with ITS.
