This paper aims to analyse the dynamic system optimal assignment with departure time choice, which is an important, yet underdeveloped area. The main contribution of this paper is the necessary conditions and the sensitivity analysis for dynamic system optimizing flow. Following this, we revisit the issue of dynamic externality in a more plausible way. We showed that how the externality can be derived and interpreted from the control theoretic formulation and the sensitivity analysis of traffic flow. To solve the system optimal assignment, we propose a dynamic programming solution approach. We present numerical calculations and discuss the characteristics of the results. In particular, we contrast the system optimal assignment with its equilibrium counterpart in terms of the amount of travel generated, flow profiles, and travel costs.
