2 Overview of a Project: TSAMS In transportation, traffic signals are necessary for drivers to avoid risks and to keep them safe. The Department of Transportation is not only responsible for ensuring the safety of the motoring public, but also ensuring that traffic signals are working correctly. To do this, the PA Department of Transportation (PennDOT) decided to implement the Traffic Signal Asset Management System (TSAMS). This system is being implemented to provide a means for executive management to access current and consistent data as it relates to traffic signals in the state of Pennsylvania. Identified need for TSAMS In 2011 it was realized that a standard system was needed to capture and maintain traffic signal data. PennDOT’s District Offices were maintaining traffic signal data in various ways using Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets (Office of Information Technology Development and Delivery, 2016). As a result, there was no streamlined system that executive management could use to ensure that traffic signals were being maintained per the Department’s policy. Executive management, within the Department, reached out to PennDOT’s Office of Information Technology Project Development and Delivery (ITPDD) to create and develop a system that would streamline the managing of the Department’s traffic signals. TSAMS Mission and Objectives ITPDD met with various staff within PennDOT to identify what features the new system should have, to meet the needs of both executive management and the District Offices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
