CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN TRACKED BY COMPUTER
Houston recently implemented an on-line computer system to enhance tracking of its Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), which averages $500-million annually for implementation of design and construction relating to the five design sections of Water, Wastewater, Storm Drainage, Streets, and Facilities in the Public Works Department. The tracking system includes milestone scheduling, man-hour planning, and control via project management reports. The system consists of a Wang VS 7310 minicomputer with six 454 MG hard disks. Terminals are located within the design branch and administration areas. The main features of the system are described in this article.
