COMPUTER-ASSISTED WORK PLANNING AND CONTROL IN THE WAY AND WORKS DEPARTMENT

RECHNERUNTERSTUETZTE FERTIGUNGSPLANUNG UND -STEUERUNG IM OBERBAUDIENST

In a single year the Way and Works Department of the DB has to renew about 1,600 to 2,500 km track, 4,000 to 6,000 switch points, and do systematic maintenance on 8,000 to 10,000 km track and 4,000 to 5,000 switch points. This large volume of work, its co-ordination with train-running requirements, the handling of the materials, the high capital employment and wage costs, call for exact and responsive planning and work preparation, also the examination of variants and a good-functioning information system on costs and adherence to target dates. In order to master all these tasks, the DB decided to introduce computer-assisted work planning and control in the Way and Works Department. In considering the optimal procedure, attention was centered on the three aspects of planning, control and monitoring. Work progress is the focal point, and all other aspects such as capacity planning for men and machines, operational arrangements, material requirements, target dates and cost control, are subservient to it. The system chosen, which is to be operated jointly by the Way and Works Department and the Data Processing Service, is described here. It will be introduced in stages, and all personnel concerned, including those at executive levels, will be given thorough training.
