MASSTRAM: USER'S MANUAL FOR MASSTRAM
The final report (UMTA-MA-06-0073-78-1) of this project is intended as a management oriented guide to the rail vehicle maintenance scheduling problem and to the new model (MASSTRAM) developed for evaluating such schedules. It outlines a three phase project for the development of a conversational computer system for the cost-effective maintenance of heavy equipment in urban mass transit systems. Phases I and II consisted of operations analysiss of maintenance activities at selected properties, namely, on maintenance procedures at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA). Phase III consisted of the development of a model called MASSTRAM (Maintenance Analysis and Scheduling System for Transit Management).
