DEVELOPMENT OF A REAL TIME COMPUTER ORIENTED LOCOMOTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
The problems associated with the optimization and management of the maintenance of a large fleet of diesel electric locomotives are reviewed, and the development of a computer oriented program to direct maintenance is discussed. The program involves a real-time computer and program coupled with an interactive terminal network to direct and monitor maintenance activities at each shop. Present use of the program and further capabilities now under development are outlined.
