A TOTAL SYSTEMS APPROACH TO REVENUE CONTROL FOR THE STATEN ISLAND FERRY SYSTEM
The Implementation of Computerized Revenue Control for the Staten Island Ferry System will be discussed in two phases: 1) Why it is an idea whose time has come. 2) Designing the System, and the impact of the Microcomputer. Phase 1 discusses the economic savings that could be realized through Computerized Revenue Control, as well as acquiring a valuable tool for closing the loop around the system itself, and using it to improve the efficiency of the Total Operation. Phase 2 looks at a model of the system, and the unique problems of each of its components and how the component problems are solved using state of the art technology (i.e. microcomputers, etc.) Finally all of the components are tied together into a system that performs Control and Reporting Functions in Real Time tied into a Central Computer.
