ABSTRACT: This document describes a plan for evaluating and analyzing the TDOP Phase I test data for Type I freight car trucks. The plan proposes that the initial tasks should include cataloging the Phase I data, refining the TDOP sorting routine, and converting and validating the government furnished Phase I post processing program to run on Wyle's Interdata 8/32 computer. Once the software is operational, the Phase I data evaluation and analysis will begin with a pilot program to establish the validity of the techniques for establishing freight car truck performance indices. The plan states that a final report will be published sixty days after completion of the evaluation and analysis of Phase I data.
