This paper describes the design and implementation of an online PC-based crew allocation and management system for freight trains on Indian Railways. The software allows different rules to be used for calling the crew so that equity in duty hours is achieved. A computer network between the various bases of a planning region can solve the problem of imbalances in crew availability. The software also reduces a lot of data redundancy because it can integrate well with other systems.
