Users of the manual generally are trying to achieve one of three objectives: identify problems, select countermeasures (a priori evaluation), or evaluate previous actions (post hoc). Problems usually are identified when performance measures for a network or a facility—or a portion of one—do not meet established standards.

A system includes the corridors, with one or more types of facility or mode, as well as the areas representing all or part of the transportation network under study. Exhibit 3-2 depicts a system analysis—combining the analyses of individual elements to produce an aggregate view of a facility, a corridor, or an area.
