B Strategic

Product profile

B Strategic is the long-term traffic planning module of the BEONTRA Scenario Planning Suite.

It supports the creation of demand-oriented, top-down unconstrained long-term traffic forecasting scenarios for different traffic products such as passengers, movements or freight.

B Strategic offers highest flexibility with regard to long-term traffic influencing factors like global/ regional economic development, fares, tourism, energy prices and other relevant indicators which can be combined, varied and weighted based on correlation to facilitate the creation of project specific long-term forecasts.

Moreover, B Strategic allows to develop long-term forecasts based on a set of econometric and statistical parameters according to best practices of the industry.

The integration of different traffic products into one forecasting model guarantees consistency throughout the model, high transparency and easy adaptations and scenario creations. Additionally, B Strategic generates excellent graphics and reports which can easily be used in management presentations and publications.
