The transfer to automated operational control over the transport process on a series of roads began with the autonomous planning on electronic computers of the work of the classification yards. This is connected with the possibilities of the presently utilized means of computational and data transfer technology. Experience on several roads revealed the need and possibility for constructing more flexible automated systems ensuring the reception by train traffic controllers of operational integrated information and railcar flows and locomotives under conditions of changing train circumstances. The following functional steps can be defined in the operational control process, corresponding in equal degree to all levels of control (stations, terminal, section, division, and entire road): control over the fulfillment of the transport process, technological and technical normalization, planning (current, etc.) and actual control corresponding to various levels (type of train, autodispatcher, station autodispatcher). This report goes on to cover the collective system, by which users located at distant points have, through the data transmission devices (terminals) immediate access to the data information bank in the computer's memory, for solving tasks within a realistic time range. The report goes on to describe the development of the system, and complex methods for utilizing locomotives.
