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:
|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.
|Stakeholders routinely plan, review, and update responses to incidents.
|Strategic Incident Response Planning
|Real-time corridor status information is continually monitored.
|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:
|Day-to-day management of data used to support system operations
|Use of common algorithms and rules
|Link systems and processes to enhance coordination; common presentation and use of data
|Ensuring the overall availability of a safe, secure working environment
