COMPUTERS FLAG CAR CONDITION

Chicago and North Western has expanded computerized interline car repair billing into an information system that makes possible the analysis of the condition of its own freight-car fleet. This involves capturing for computer storage mileage and all maintenance costs for system cars which means keying all manual bills not included in data exchange, as well as all system repairs made on line. With 3 years of information of 46,000 cars, it is now possible to retrieve data by car classes, by individual cars, and by car components for maintenance costing and service life.
