Categories of Requirements

As illustrated in the following diagram, requirements were organized into categories that match the major functions in the corridor management workflow:


The main categories (in blue) support these workflow functions:

Function Category of Requirements
People and organizations work together to manage, resource, fund, and maintain a working Integrated Corridor Management system that is accepted by all stakeholders. Institutional Support
Stakeholders routinely plan, review, and update responses to incidents. Strategic Incident Response Planning
Real-time corridor status information is continually monitored. Corridor Monitoring
An incident is identified and characterized. Real-Time Incident/Event Monitoring
Predefined response plan components and the current corridor state suggest tailored response plans. Real-Time Response Planning
Once a response plan is chosen, it will then be implemented by corridor resources. Response Plan Implementation


These activities are further supported by four categories (in green) of crossing-cutting requirements:

Function Requirements
Day-to-day management of data used to support system operations Data Management
Use of common algorithms and rules Decision Support
Link systems and processes to enhance coordination; common presentation and use of data System Integration
Ensuring the overall availability of a safe, secure working environment System Management
