ELECTRONIC COMPUTING METHODS ARE REVIEWED WHICH MAY INCREASE HIGHWAY ENGINEERING PRODUCTIVITY. THE JUSTIFICATION FOR THE USE OF ELECTRONIC COMPUTATION METHODS IS ECONOMY. ELECTRONIC COMPUTERS CAN HELP BY: (1) ACCOMPLISHING THE ARITHMETIC AND COMPUTATIONS WHICH OCCUPY A MAJOR PORTION OF EACH ENGINEER'S TIME, AND (2) AMPLIFY THE OUTPUT OF EACH ENGINEER BY GIVING HIM IMPROVED ANALYSIS OF THE FACTS ON WHICH HE BASES HIS DECISIONS. THE COMPUTER WILL NOT THINK FOR THE ENGINEER BUT WILL PROVIDE HIM WITH BETTER INFORMATION, SOONER, AND IN MORE QUANTITY THAN HE HAD BEFORE.
