DIESEL RECORDS SYSTEM

The file name is DIESEL RECORDS MASTER FILE. The objectives of this computer program are: 1. To aid in scheduling and verifying completion of locomotive maintenance items. 2. To aid in isolating problems with specific locomotives by providing a history of pertinent information for each unit. Output consists of a semi-monthly printout showing the following information for each unti due maintenance during the next fifteen days: 1. Maintenance items due to be performed including repetitive maintenance items which are done at fixed intervals and special upgrading or correction projects. 2. A history of traction motor failures on each unit by pedestal number. 3. An indication if the traction motor model is not one of the models which is recommended for use on the specific locomotive model. (Recommendation is based on reliability considerations). Other outputs include a current "cab card" and various inventory listings of main components (traction motors, main generators, turbochargers, etc.). Feedback is provided when maintenance items are completed by having the person who did the work sign the computer report and then keytyping data from the report. A maintenance item will continue to appear on the report each month until it is reported completed. Input consists of: 1. Oil control lab data, in-service failures, and defects from the Locomotive In-service Failure/Defect Analysis Program. 2. Feedback data from the shops on each maintenance item or project completed. 3. Traction motor applications and removals from the diesel shops. 4. Tables of frequency of repetitive maintenance items. 5. Tables identifying which units are due for special projects.
