By using the National ITS Architecture's "User Services" and "User Service Objectives", planners can reduce their efforts and streamline the process of developing their ITS vision. It is recommended that workshops and focus groups be conducted to develop goals and objectives for the ITS program that map to the identified needs. It is also useful for the goals and objectives to be associated with short-, medium-, and long-term solutions and cross-referenced to individual user services and user service bundles (categorized by Rural and Urban categories).
The ITS user services objectives should be defined on a regional basis. They should address specific objectives, meet customer needs, and target solutions to specific problems.
These actions can increase the efficiency of the planning process.
