WORKLOAD INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR PLANNING (WISP)

The computer program creates small individual user-oriented information files which can be used for such purposes as planning the make-up and frequency of trains, determining the amount of capacity expansion required at overcrowded yards, deciding what traffic could be eliminated from congested line segments and determing the effect heavier cars are having on the life of bridges and rail. The main operations of WISP are the merging of data for each move from one past year and two forecast years into one large file, the addition of the train type and standard route to the description of each move and the grouping of commodity types, car types and station numbers to the level of detail required by the user.
