ELECTRONIC COMPUTERS AND CONTROL OF THE TRANSPORT PROCESS

EVM I UPRAVLENIE PEREVOZOCHNYM PROTSESSOM

Under present conditions of scientific and technical progress, control over the production process becomes more and more complex and requires the direct treatment of a large volume of information, intensification of the role of economic controls, and the application of economic mathematical methods. Further improvement of the level of control is possible with the use of computers. The first step of ASUZHT is the information planning system (IPS), which includes, along with the means of calculation technology, the technology of collection and transfer of information, technical devices for transfer of data, and mathematical provisions for the solution of problems. Planning of train make up is realized on the road with the help of computers. The following problems are solved: elaboration of plans for the arrival of trains into the stations at four hour intervals, plans for classification, definition of proper time for forming the blocks. A whole series of analytical and engineering tasks are solved with the aid of calculation technology, thereby greatly reducing time expenditures. The application of the means of calculation technology will have a large economic and social effect, freeing large numbers of workers from unproductive manual treatment of information, and allowing them to more deeply and thoughtfully realize control over the transport process.
