ITS POLSKA seminar and workshop summary
„FRAME Architecture in ITS”

In 22th and 24th of June 2010, in Warsaw the one-day seminar “Planning integrated ITS using the FRAME Architecture” and two-day workshop “Creating an ITS Architecture from the FRAME Architecture and how to use it” took place.

Almost 30 participants by the representatives of government institutions and self-government units (41%), services sector (38%), organizations (7%) and universities (14%) has been confirmed participation in the meeting.

Seminar aims and objectives was to show how ITS architectures can be used to plan the provision of integrated ITS; the benefits of using ITS architectures and the risks of not using one, how stakeholders’ aspirations for integrated and cooperating ITS can be captured and combined into an ITS architecture that will satisfy their needs, how ITS architecture can be used to identify and plan management and business issues; how the implementation and deployment costs and benefits can be assessed; how the components and supporting, communications can be defined, and the risks identified, to explain the work needed to create ITS architectures and the people to be involved and finally to provide real examples of this approach, and the achievements that have been made.

The workshop covered the following areas as introduction to the FRAME Architecture, defining the services to be provided – Stakeholder Aspirations and User Needs, assembling what is needed to provided the services – Functional Viewpoint, creating the building blocks for ITS implementation – Physical and Communication Viewpoints, deployment issues – highlighting management issues (Organisational Viewpoint); preparing Deployment and Migration Plans, plus Component Specifications and Communications Requirements; carrying out Cost/Benefit and Risk Analyses.
