CASE STUDIES ON CAR INSPECTION, CONDITIONING AND REJECTION

This report presents the results of case studies and evaluation dealing with car rejection, inspection and conditioning. These case studies have been brought together in the hopes of providing a greater insight into the difficult problem of assigning empty cars to meet shippers' requirements at the least cost. A greater understanding of this problem should lead to the development of methods that will produce a better trade-off between the cost of car rejections and the cost of preventing them.
