BREAKTHROUGHS VIA THE COMPUTER
In 1972, Seaboard Coast Line Industries acquired 100% ownership of the L&N, and a "Family Lines" management concept was established, including not only L&N but also the two jointly owned L&N-SCL subsidiaries, Clinchfield and Georgia. Before 1972, the management information services departments of the two roads were performing strikingly similar services for the user departments of the two roads, yet the procedures and computer programs used to accomplish these similar functions were quite different. Today this duplication of effort has been eliminated. Common reporting formats and procedures exist. One telecommunication system computer controls the entire consolidated network. This network and the benefits realized are discussed in this article.
