MAINTENANCE OF WAY PLANNING: ONE VIEW OF THE ROLE OF THE COMPUTER...

Information systems have a growing role in railroad management and some specific problems of computer application to maintenance-of-way management are examined. After looking at a maintenance and engineering subsystem of an overall railroad functional information system, the importance of communication between m/w officers and the data processing department is emphasized. A specific application in engineering graphics--the use of a data base for constant updating of valuation maps and track charts--is discussed. Further applications in engineering drawing are also suggested.
