Ferry Systems Data, Scheduling and Billing. Scheduling Systems Analysis: Final Report, Research Project Y-3399, Task 11

This report describes the feasibility, costs and benefits of automating the vessel and crew scheduling functions of the Marine Division of the Washington State Department of Transportation. The project examined the needs of the Marine Division, reviewed its current procedures, and compared available commercial and public domain software packages. Some existing packages intended for use by the transit and airline industries offer promise, but all packages examined require considerable modification to meet the needs of the Marine Division.
