COMPUTERIZED CLASSIFICATION TABLES
Table is used to automatically furnish classification codes of traffic moving via TIPS yards, for use by use by the Yards' mini-computers in automatic classification of cars. The classification codes are obtained by processing car data for cars contained in trains destined to TIPS location. This data is processed against the classification table at the Atlanta Computer Complex and transmitted to the TIPS computers upon request. The system was designed to use the central computer complex to develop the codes because all data required for the development was available at that location. It also permits easy expansion of the system to include other yards.
