LOCOMOTIVE CAB DESIGN DEVELOPMENT. VOLUME 3: DESIGN APPLICATION ANALYSIS
In Volume II of this service of reports on Locomotive Cab Design Development, changes were recommended in the layout and equipment content of locomotive cabs. This report studies the impact of these changes on the interface of the cab with the rest of the locomotive, the required structure, the reliability, the development costs, and the cost of introduction to the operating locomotive fleet. In addition, this report assesses the uses of various techniques of mockup use during the development phases of the design.
