IHSDM User Group
FHWA has established a new IHSDM User Group. A User Group kick-off meeting (web conference) was held on August 15. A recording of the webinar can be accessed here. PowerPoint slides from the meeting can be accessed here.
The purpose of the IHSDM User Group is as follows:
• Providing FHWA with a formal mechanism for obtaining input from IHSDM users regarding IHSDM, including current capabilities (functionality, user-friendliness, etc.) and potential future enhancements/extensions of the software. Input from User Group members will help FHWA establish priorities for future software development.
• Fostering communication between IHSDM users, by providing a forum for users to share their experiences with the software (e.g., success stories/case studies, challenges faced and solutions, building support for using IHSDM within an agency).
• Providing a forum for discussions/presentations on specific IHSDM-related topics.
• Serving as a beta test group. User Group members could beta test new additions/enhancements to IHSDM before the release is made available to the public.
