Advantages of AMS

Analysis, modeling, and simulation offers the major advantage of being able to try out and analyze interventions in a simulated environment before deploying a system. This makes it possible to:

  • Assess existing operating conditions
  • Identify the most feasible and effective control strategies
  • Reveal data and infrastructure gaps that might otherwise go unnoticed
  • Identify unexpected challenges
  • Significantly reduce project risk
  • Quantify benefits and costs
  • Provide justification for repairing and upgrading sensing and control elements
  • Target infrastructure investments that will have the greatest impact
  • Help stakeholders understand and visualize system dynamics at the corridor level
  • Provide scenarios and response strategies for systems engineering documents
  • Enhance common understanding among stakeholders
