MICROCOMPUTERS IN TRANSPORTATION: ADDRESSING ORGANIZATIONAL ISSUES. VOLUME 3. SELECTED READINGS
This document is one in a series of selected readings covering a range of topics related to microcomputers. This volume was preceeded by "Getting Started in Microcomputers" (Vol. 1) and "Selecting a Single User System" (Vol. 2). Volume 3 has been designed to give the transportation professional practical suggestions for ways to increase the effectiveness of their computing tools. First, we identify those factors which seem to make a difference when and after new computing tools are introduced. In effect, this is a checklist of "good practices" which the transportation professional ought to keep in mind. Closely following this discussion of good practice is a framework for self-assessment of your particular situation. Using this framework should be a first step toward identifying your needs for organizational changes to be a part of managing computer tools. In the third section, an outline of specific actions which have been taken in a variety of industries is presented, together with mention of the types of problems which can surface and actually have occurred.
