TSM&O Research Technical Working Group


The TSM&O Research Technical Working Group connects the TSM&O community with the many ongoing national research activities including those of the ITS/JPO, FHWA, SHRP2, NCHRP and the AASHTO membership. The group's responsibilities include solicitation, preparation and submission of NCHRP research problem statements. It also serves as a point of contact for ongoing research activities soliciting state participation and/or information, and provides support to these groups with the dissemination of research results. The TSM&O Research Working Group coordinates closely with the other working groups of the SSOM to ensure that all needed research topics are identified

The 2015 TRB Annual Meeting comes at a pivotal juncture in the rapidly increasing movement towards adoption of a TSM&O culture both within State DOT's and the broader transportation community at large.   We are transitioning from an end to the SHRP 2 Research Program to a "next generation" TSM&O Research Framework.  This webinar highlighted critical activities underway during this transition period and set the stage for aligning and engaging the TSM&O community in advance of, and during, the 2015 TRB Annual Meeting.  These critical activities include the impending launch of the National Operations Center of Excellence, SHRP2 Reliability Product Implementation, and next steps in post-SHRP2 TSM&O research planning.  The webinar also featured highlights of TSM&O sessions, workshops, committee meetings, and events. A PDF of the slides and a recording of the webinar are available for download:
