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.
