The Early Warning System provides a method for the rail industry to identify mechanical problems on rail equipment which could impede the safe movement or handling of the equipment. The system is a web-based application that allows authorized users a graphical interface to create Early Warning and Maintenance Advisory notices, issue supplements to notices, assign equipment to notices, report inspections and repairs for equipment, and perform queries of notices and equipment.
A single source for accurate, up-to-date notice data, Early Warning enables easy inspection and repair reporting and includes features such as email alerts on notice events and detailed transaction log queries. Railinc provides access to the Early Warning System via TRAIN II and web services.
