THE IMPORTANCE OF LEAD TIME, PART 3

CALIFORNIAS RIGHT-OF-WAY CONTROL SYSTEM, A NEWLY DEVELOPED COMPUTER APPLICATION IS DESCRIBED. THE CONTROL SYSTEM DEALS WITH ROW PROBLEMS THAT OCCUR IN PLANNING OF NECESSARY WORK FORCE, SCHEDULING OF PARCELS THROUGH THE WORK ACTIVITIES, SCHEDULING OF EXPENDITURES, ACCOMMODATING CHANGE, AND MONITORING OPERATIONS. IT IS BASED ON CRITICAL PATH TECHNOLOGIES AND THE PREMISE THAT PARCELS WITH CRITICAL LEAD TIME MUST BE ACQUIRED FIRST. INPUT TO THE CONTROL SYSTEM IS THROUGH STANDARDIZED PUNCHED CARDS WHICH ARE DESCRIBED IN THE REPORT. THE REPORT ALSO DESCRIBES EIGHT DIFFERENT PRODUCTS OF THE SYSTEM WHICH ARE REPORTS THAT COVER' R/W PROGRAM PLANNING, MANPOWER PLANNING, PROJECT STATUS, PROJECT PARCELS, SPECIAL PARCEL, SPECIAL POST MILE LIMIT, SIMULATED RESULTS, AND VALIDITY OF SCHEDULE INTERVALS. THE R/W CONTROL SYSTEMS STARTS WITH ROUTE ADOPTION AND ENDS WITH A CERTIFICATION OF THE R/W FOR CONSTRUCTION. THE CONTROL SYSTEM DOES NOT ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR MANAGEMENT' RATHER, IT RELIES ON MANAGEMENT FOR DIRECTION. /BPR/
