A Maintenance Management System for Counties

by Lansford C. Bell, Auburn Univ, Auburn, AL, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Microcomputer Applications Within the Urban Transportation Environment


This paper discusses the capabilities of the software and lists guidelines for implementing microcomputer software in local highway department offices. Although data base and spreadsheet programs have tremendous flexibility for certain applications, their use for developing full scale maintenance management systems is limited. The integrated software modules developed by the author are far more efficient, but the programs are rigidly structured, so multiple users of the software must conform to similar data input and report printing procedures.
