Effective Transportation System Management and Operations (TSMO) brings together a set of strategies for operational improvements. Rapid technological advances drastically affect ITS, Signals and Traffic Operations. As advances occur, technology continues to become more and more connected. The crossroads of traditional ITS/Traffic Operations and the future of integrated, highly resilient systems is where Exult thrives. To optimize these systems requires the collaboration of municipal, regional, state, and private transportation resources and infrastructure.


Exult Engineering is well versed in the key strategies for the implementation of systems management and operation.

Exult Engineering offers TSMO and ITS planning, design and O&M to optimize existing corridors and transportation systems with the end goal to increase performance, reliability, efficiency, and safety.

To plan for improved operations, it is first important to understand where you are starting. Evaluating an agency’s maturity within the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) provides an understanding of where an agency’s strengths and weaknesses lie across the CMM six dimensions. This is key in determining the steps required to mature in each of the dimensions. Exult Engineering has a strong history of working with our clients to solve complex challenges with unique solutions. Our experience includes:

  • Communication Network Assessment
