Computer-Aided Dispatch System as a Decision Making Tool in Public and Private Sectors
Author(s)Lee, I-Jen; Larson, Richard C., 1943-
We describe in detail seven distinct areas in both public and private sectors in which a real-time computer-aided dispatch system is applicable to the allocation of scarce resources. Characteristics of a real-time computer-aided dispatch system are identified. Monetary savings and/or non-monetary advantages are presented to justify the implementation of a computer-aided dispatch system.
