4.1.2 Reports

The CHART II system will allow operators to view and print reports off-line describing traffic conditions upon request. System operators will also be able to generate reports regarding daily activities associated with field devices and system operators. Such reports can only be developed by operators who possess the appropriate system rights.

A search tool will be provided to aid operators in finding specific incident and device reports. Once located, the ability to print these reports will be provided from any CHART II workstation. System operators will be able to review the following detailed reports:

4.1.2.1 Incident

The CHART II system will allow operators to view and print detailed reports for specific incidents from their workstations. The reports will contain information from the incident handler software, including:

Weather information from SSI Scan sensors will automatically be included in incident reports, provided the pavement sensors are located within a preset distance of the incident.

4.1.2.2 Field Device

The CHART II system will allow operators to view and print detailed reports for specific field devices from their workstations. The report will show user activity and system activity for a specified time period. For example, if an operator wanted to view a device report for VMS No. 123 on Wednesday, February 18, 1998 between 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., the following information would be available:

4.1.2.3 Field Device Usage

The CHART II system will allow operators to view and print detailed reports from their workstations that describe the usage of field devices. Available information will include:

For example, if information was desired about VMS No. 123, the report would note that VMS No. 123 was used on Wednesday, February 18, 1998 from 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., and that ten accident messages and five roadwork messages were displayed on the device.

4.1.2.4 System User

The CHART II system will allow operators with appropriate system rights to view and print detailed reports describing all activities associated with a system user during a specified date and time from their workstations. The information will include, but not be limited to the following:

4.1.2.5 System Health

The CHART II system will allow operators with appropriate system rights to view and print detailed reports showing the failures and operational alarms for each selected device for a specified date and time period. The report will include failure type and down time for each failure. A total of the percent downtime will also be included for each device for the specified time period. The feature will aid operators in determining failures throughout the system.

4.1.2.6 Operation Center

The CHART II system will allow operators with appropriate system rights to view and print summary reports describing all activities associated with a specified operations center for a specific date and time period. The report will include all activities that originated from the specified operations center.
