Electronic Data Processing — What it has done for the Transportation Function in Con Edison 680152
The Transportation Department of Consolidated Edison has made extensive use of electronic data processing procedures in keeping detailed cost records on its vehicles, controlling preventive maintenance schedules, and determining individual vehicle performance records. The specific procedures and types of reports are described in detail.
The system is also used to control the parts inventory. Vendors supply designated parts to Con Ed which are paid for as they are used, a procedure that results in savings by reducing the number of invoices processed for small dollar items. Tire service operations are also controlled on the system.
