On the basis of an historical reflection on the definition of the work cybernetics in the development from antiquity up to modern times, problem situations and the possibilities of cybernetics as the theory and technology of the objectivization of intellectual work are described. In conjunction with the technology of the method, cybernetic systems are then analyzed in their structure and the subsystems resulting from the transmission of information and processing of information are described. In the processing of information use can be made of the help of the operational research for the purpose of the adjustment of the cybernetic systems. The advantages and the development of cybernetic systems in the sphere of the railways are next shown by some examples and the general direction of development up to the objectivization of the management together with the problems appertaining there to are demonstrated.
