Computer program: MAIN DIESEL COMPONENT INVENTORY, CAR MOVEMENT HISTORY FILE. Program produces a family of reports giving traction motor reliability data by model. Reports provide basis for decision rules for vendor selection, and preferred combinations of traction motor model--locomotive model.

Output consists of the following reports: 1. Traction motor overhaul data by motor serial number. 2. Traction motor overhaul data by armature serial number. 3. Traction motor armature overhaul rates by armature manufacturer for each 100,000 mile increment since manufacture or rewinding. 4. Traction motor model-locomotive model failure rates by combination showing number of motors in class, mileage last 3 months; reason for overhaul and number of overhauls.
