You Can’t Manage Traffic if You Aren’t Agile!

Presentation: Over the past few years, the scope of our multi-million dollar project development work has expanded from primarily Advanced Traffic Management focused efforts to include multiple development projects for other applications such as Mapping, Emergency Operations, Lane Closures, etc. Maryland mandates a strict SDLC process. Eventually over half of the completed releases had addressed scope changes which either impacted schedule and/or budget. Even when project size was shrinking for quicker delivery, the rate of scope change stayed the same or increased often requiring re-planning of project resources on multiple projects. We had to find a better way to respond to unpredictability.
Speaker: Richard Dye is the Statewide Systems Administrator for the Advanced Transportation Management, Emergency Operations Reporting and Lane Closure Permitting Systems for Maryland’s Coordinated Highways Action Response Team. He is responsible for design, build, operation, and maintenance of the software and network connecting over 80 different operations centers for over 36 agencies. Rick served in a similar statewide role in Colorado and a metropolitan system in San Antonio. Previously, Rick was an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile commander in the United States Air Force and has a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer and Information Sciences from the Florida State University.
