This article describes the growth of Dade County's system for traffic signal maintenance from a manual to a computerized reporting system. The computer program was developed to expedite the evaluation process, reduce the man hours used and to obtain, by statistical analysis, more definitive results. The article elaborates on the objectives of the program, the input data, software, and output data. Other uses for the information are planned for budget preparation and signal equipment evaluation. The article concludes that though the program's efficiency justifies the time and effort involved in its development, and has helped to optimize the task of traffic signals maintenance, its full potentials have not been fully realized.
