Two alternative solutions are proposed for an unexpected rail trouble: laying a new track or reducing speed and intensifying inspection over the present one. The problem must be solved quickly because of material and service ordering. Cash inflows and outflows are analyzed and compared; and the figures favor a new rail. Next, a negotiating process takes place between financing people and engineering and operating people. The new rail is agreed upon and the decision is executed immediately.
