      The Illiana travel forecasting model is set up as a three-tier approach, providing a different level of detail in each tier that is most appropriate for every subtask. Figure 1 shows the three tiers. Figure 1: Three-Tier Approach for the Illiana Travel Forecasting Model The model starts in Tier II with the CMAP regional travel forecasting model. Demand Planning & Forecasting is both an art and a science. It requires informed judgment, business expertise, and technical skills. Done well, it can provide a true competitive edge and increased sales, while managing inventory and maintaining best-in-class customer service. Forecasting depends on both a structured process and modeling. Traffic forecasting is an important component of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's (WisDOT's) planning, design and operations. It transforms a wide array of traffic, demographic and economic data into information essential to engineers, intercity and urban planners, project programmers and policy makers.

STEPS IN THE FORECASTING PROCESS Regardless of what forecasting method is used, there are some basic steps that should be followed when making a forecast: Decide what to forecast.

- Selection from Operations Management: An Integrated Approach, 5th Edition [Book]. Transportation forecasting is the attempt of estimating the number of vehicles or people that will use a specific transportation facility in the future.

For instance, a forecast may estimate the number of vehicles on a planned road or bridge, the ridership on a railway line, the number of passengers visiting an airport, or the number of ships calling on a seaport. The book Business Forecasting is a compilation of existing articles.

Gilliland, Tashman and Sglavo edited what can be named the Bible of Business Forecasting. It contains around 50 articles that appeared in journals such as Foresight and Journal of Business Forecasting.

The TPB, like virtually all U.S. metropolitan areas, makes use of a trip-based travel demand model, which is often called a “four-step model,” due to the four major steps (shown below).

An alternate approach to the trip-based model (TBM) is the activity-based model (ABM). Synopsis: This course provides an introduction to travel demand analysis and forecasting.

Students will understand travel demand models from a theoretical, applied and practical perspective. Students will become familiar with the traditional four-step travel forecasting process, including model development, application and interpretation of.

“Our world is increasingly complex, often chaotic, and always fast-flowing. This makes forecasting something between tremendously difficult and actually impossible, with a strong shift toward the latter as timescales get longer.” ― Andrew McAfee, Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing Our Digital Future.
