GENERALIZATION: I have a dataset on road polylines at a scale of 1:2500. What parameters can I use for a generalization to  a smaller scale of 1:50000?

I am working on an assignment to automate generalization with the ArcGIS model builder.

I currently have a layer of road lines at a scale of 1:2500 with the intent to generalize to a smaller scale of 1:20000 and 1:50000


How can I justify the parameters for thin road network from a scale of 1:2500 to a small scale of 1:50000?

Secondly, what tools should i include in my workflow to automate my road polyline generalization?
