TESTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE AUTOMATION OF THE EQUIPPING OF TRAINS WITH TRACTIVE UNITS--AUTOMATED MANAGEMENT OF A LOCOMOTIVE FLEET
The tests, prepared and executed at Marseille, were designed at ensuring, with the help of a computer, the optimum continuous allocation of a stock of more than 400 locomotives to all the trains running on the two Marseilles and Montpellier regions chosen for this purpose. The installed system was a man-machine system in which the data processing machine (C 11 10 070, connected to 18 terminal equipments) prepared, every two hours, the allocation charts (for the use of the depots and control offices), finalized and completed by the Regional Control Office team. Each chart covered an allocation period of 3 hours and supplied the allocation forecasts for a period of 11 hours after the 3 hours. This management system permits a better use of the traction means, but requires a very thorough and detailed study of the information collecting procedures and of the organization of the different branches concerned at various levels (depots, Central Control Office, Regional Control Office).
