Using Systems Engineering to Develop Version 3.0 of the TMDD Standard

This paper is a discussion on how a systems engineering process (SEP) was used to manage the development of Version 3 of the ITE/AASHTO Traffic Management Data Dictionary Standard for Traffic Management Center-to-Center Communications (TMDD). The SEP was used to accomplish several objectives: to manage the development process such as documenting the user needs, requirements and design elements in a consistent manner; and to manage the technical aspects of the project such as risk management and configuration control. Although this process was used to develop a communications standard, the process used and the lessons learned can be applied to deploying this standard, and writing a communications specification.
