Abstract

This paper describes how optimal control theory may be used to analyze the time staging of investment decisions for transportation facilities when there is an interrelationship between demand and level of service. Second order conditions are developed for various cases of practical significance. A numerical example is introduced to illustrate the effect that demand-quality interrelationships can have on the optimal time staging policy.
