Recent technological advances have rendered the minicomputer a most flexible aid to business. The authors detail the characteristics of minicomputers which lend themselves to varied applications, particularly in the railroad industry where they are adaptable to monitoring and controlling maintenance of way programs. Specific areas where the minicomputer can be useful are in the preparation of track charts, bridge inventories, inspection and analysis, and in preventive maintenance programs for both track and bridges.
