Inclement Weather Signal Timings (Jul 2000, MPC-01-120)

This study examines signal timing in inclement weather conditions. With the completion of the Utah DOT's Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS), UDOT will have the capability to change signal timing plans from a central location by communicating with each controller through fiber optic technology....

 

The overall objective of this project is to develop a prototype virtual machine that fits on current ATMS controllers and provides functionality for complex traffic operations. The virtual machine will be developed and tested using the popular controller: the Matrix Model 2070 ATMS Controller. The controller...

 

This study was conducted to determine if efficiencies could be gained through the process of standardizing data storage mechanisms to permit diversity at the operating level while maintaining data compatibility for aggregation at higher levels in the organization. Transportation agencies use many computer...

 

This report describes the development of a Standard Modular Data Storage System. Features such as inventory data, pavement management data, and other maintenance data can be organized as modules in a common data repository. This repository can be imported into an enterprise database such as Informix....

 

In 1991 federal transportation legislation, Congress mandated that state DOT's develop and implement comprehensive bridge management systems (BMS). Related to this, a rigorous BMS software package, PONTIS, was developed via federal contracting to industry.

 

A variety of computer tools are being used by UDOT to serve diverse maintenance management needs. Many of the tools are individually tailored for a specific purpose and lack the functionality to share data with other applications. This has resulted in the establishment of numerous databases which are...

 

This report presents the results from expert interviews with Minneapolis-St. Paul companies and North Dakota manufacturing companies. The Minneapolis expert interviews helped to identify the minimal logistical capabilities a supplier must have in order to do business with the Minneapolis companies. Ten...

 

The project objective was to assess and determine whether the logistical practices of small and rural suppliers will allow them the opportunity to successfully participate in an integrated supply chain. The project consists of two steps. First, we identified minimal logistical capabilities a supplier...

 
Gravel Shortage Options (Dec 1996, MPC-96-65)

Some North Dakota counties are facing a shortage in quality gravel. Other counties may experience the same problem in the near future. Gravel pits in the state are scarce and counties consume substantial amounts of gravel for a large portion of their roads. Obtaining gravel from distant sources leaves...

 

In response to current market pressures, firms are forming strategies under various industry initiatives to gain competitive advantage. Whether these initiatives entail better service, lower costs, or both, they share a common essence: integrating the supply chain. The objective of this project was to...
