COMPUTERS GO "ON TRACK"
This is a report of an IBM seminar on computerized management of track maintenance. Discussions centered on the use of a data base in which the computer can sort, store, combine and compute information and run simulations of maintenance strategies. The experience of several railroads was reported, along with the use of computer studies of track problems confronting the United States Railroad Association in its restructuring of the Northeast railroads. It is noted that the computer input has frequently been gathered and compiled manually by railroads, but only the barest use of such information could be made. Computer technology is changing all this.
