DESIGN OF TRAIN TIMETABLE AUTOMATIC EDITING SYSTEM BY SMALL-SCALE COMPUTERS

Processes ranging from timetable editing and block copy preparation have been systematized in a train timetable automatic editing system. With the operation of this system, monthly block copies can now be made up rapidly as well as accurately. This article describes what kinds of files constitute information for the timetable, and how the necessary information is processed all the way to final composition of pages. It also explains how maintenance processing is carried out to keep abreast of monthly alterations of schedules and increases or decreases of train runs. Emphasis is placed on file maintenance and a newly developed filing system. The system produces block copies as the final output by using a fully automatic photo-composing machine. A block copy means a page of an ordinary timetable.
