DEVELOPMENT OF TRACK MAINTENANCE TRAINING AND MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS PROGRAMS. FINAL REPORT

This report documents the development of Track Maintenance Training Program and a Track Maintenance Information System as part of an overall Rail Maintenance Management Information System. The training program which was designed for track maintenance consists of three main components: (1) A curriculum of courses that documents the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) track maintenance work unit procedures, skills requirements and management systems; (2) A core training program that utilizes the training courses of the curriculum in an integrated training effort involving classroom and on-the-job training; and (3) An ongoing program that consists of training courses conducted by supervisors on an as-needed basis. The Track Maintenance Information System is an integral part of the Department of Rail's Maintenance Management Information System. The overall system, entitled "Maintenance and Reliability System (MARS)", is written in DATACOM/DB and provides for work order tracking, an inventory of physical assets, and the scheduling of preventive maintenance.
