The Results of the
Subcommittee on Systems
Operation and Management
Strategic Plan Development
(SSOM) Workshop
3
Proposed Vision and Mission
• Vision: Transform the national transportation
community to a Transportation Systems
Management and Operations (TSM&O) culture that
focuses on effectively managing the surface
transportation system.
• Mission: To serve as the focal point for promoting
and supporting integrated implementation of
TSM&O by engaging state DOTs, other AASHTO
committees, and other partner organizations.
4
Some Initial Concepts
• Amend the AASHTO Governing Documents to
change the name of the Subcommittee on Systems
Operation and Management (SSOM) to the
Subcommittee on Transportation Systems
Management and Operations (STSMO)
• TSM&O is to be defined within the Strategic Plan
• The Plan should recognize the changing
landscape; privatization, connected/autonomous
vehicles, and increasing importance of freight
5
Strategic Goals
• Formalize relationships and processes among the
AASHTO groups responsible for various aspects of
TSM&O.
• Develop effective working relationships with
external organizations involved in TSM&O.
• Define, guide, and support the Operations Center
of Excellence (OCoE).
6
Organization
• STSMO task forces renamed working groups
• Three working groups identified:
 System Operations Strategies
 System Operations Performance Measures
 Operations Center of Excellence (OCoE)
• OCoE to be discontinued when initial planning is
completed
7
Future Expansion of Working
Groups
• To occur following the discontinuation of the OCoE
Working Group
• Two new groups proposed
 Traffic Incident Management – to coordinate with
the TIM Technical Action Group (TIMTAG)
 Research – to coordinate submission of NCHRP
problem statements and other research activities
8
Strategies Working Group
• Mission to be limited to issues that affect strategic
direction of Maintenance and Operations and have
broad impact on the field
• Initial emphasis on integrated corridor
management
• Anticipate future involvement with connected and
autonomous vehicle technology
9
Performance Measures Working
Group
• Near term to focus on MAP-21 performance
measure requirements
• Long term to act as a clearinghouse for:
 The state of the practice and
 Overcoming challenges encountered by the
TSM&O community
10
Coordination with Other AASHTO
Committees
• SCOHT (highway transport)
• SCOHTS (safety)
• SCOM (maintenance)
• SCOTE (traffic engineering)
• SOC (construction)
11
Measures for Tracking Progress
• Engagement – The degree to which multiple states
are engaged in the SSOM (STSMO) activities.
• Deployment – The extent to which states have
adopted TSM&O as an integral element of their
organization
• Measures related to specific activities undertaken
by the SSOM (STSMO)
12
Operations Center of Excellence
(OCoE) Business Plan Update
13
OCoE Milestones
• TSM&O is now recognized as important discipline
and community of practice
• NCHRP 20-7 (298) evaluated OCoE concept as
key step to support TSM&O
• AASHTO, ITE and ITSA executed a Memorandum
of Understanding (MOU) on 8/30/13 to develop an
OCoE
• SSOM Workshop in Denver initiated effort to create
a Business Plan for an OCoE

Highlights of Discussion
• Workshop participants agreed on basic
strategy for addressing all business plan
issues
• Opportunity to leverage SHRP2
implementation efforts (and particularly L17)
in launching an OCoE
• Initial OCoE program of activities and
dedicated staffing must be sufficient to
generate support from AASHTO members
16
Highlights (cont.)
• OCoE will need to proactively engage the TSM&O
community
• A strong communication strategy for launching the
OCoE and promoting its activities will be a crucial
element for success
17

Directors at the AASHTO Annual Meeting
• Draft Business Plan due in November 2013
• Plan to be reviewed with SSOM (STSMO) in
May 2014

Special Committee on
Transportation Security and
Emergency Management
(SCOTSEM) Updates
30
Updates
• 2013 SCOTSEM Annual Meeting was held in conjunction with the
2013 Transportation Hazards and Security Summit and Peer
Exchange organized by Transportation Research Board (TRB).
• There was a significant State DOT participation; 39 state DOT
members representing 28 state DOT agencies. Additionally, 14
members from Federal, regional and local government organizations
also attended this event.
• The AASHTO Special Committee on Wireless Communication
Technology also participated in the Summit; between SCOWCoT and
SCOTSEM, representatives from more than 40 state transportation
agencies participated in the meetings, including significant numbers
from state patrol or highway patrol organizations.
31
Resolution
The SCOTSEM members recognized that the MAP21
provides the States flexibility to use various
transportation funds for security improvements,
enhancements, and design; therefore, SCOTSEM
passed a resolution requesting AASHTO to continue
to work with Congress to ensure that current MAP21
language with respect to State flexibility in using
funds for security improvements, enhancements, and
design be included or strengthened in future
transportation bills.
32
Highlights
The SCOTSEM members appreciated the TRB support in holding
the 2013 Hazards and Security Summit and Peer Exchange summit
and recognized that beginning in 2014 SCOTSEM has to organize
the annual special committee meetings like other stand alone
committees.
In light of this, SCOTSEM discussed and identified the following as
critical action items to sustain the momentum generated by the
2013 Transportation Hazards and Security Summit and Peer
Exchange sessions:
• SCOTSEM establish a new model to sustain funding and
sponsorships for holding annual meetings and related events that
provide an opportunity for needed training and education for
professionals and mid-level managers
33
Highlights (cont.)
 SCOTSEM will promote regional approaches to collaborate
and partner. SCOTSEM recognized that the regional
approach provides an ideal setting to identify emerging
issues and ongoing research needs, to reduce duplication
of effort and provide a venue for monitoring the
implementation of research. SCOTSEM identified the
regional task forces and task force chairs to advance this
effort.
 SCOTSEM identified the need to work with AASHTO
Highways Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures’
(SCOBS) T-1 and T-20 committees to strengthen their
considerations of security in bridge and tunnel design and
rehabilitation.
34
Highlights (cont.)
• SCOTSEM leadership is working on the following next steps:
 Continue to work with TRB to hold a NCHRP 20-59 (14B)
Panel meeting in Spring 2014 that includes attendees from
AASHTO SSOM, SCOBS’ Technical Committees and
develop a work plan to hold future SCOTSEM annual meeting
events.
 Align future SCOTSEM-led Transportation Hazards and
Security Summit and Peer Exchange sessions in conjunction
with 2015 SSOM and Operations Center of Excellence
(OCoE) events.
