Formatted abstract
This research report shall examine the development of a. computer based transport network analysis system for the determination of the shortest route distance from a given origin to any point within a road network.

The system concept evolved from an inquiry for a map or series of maps showing the shortest possible distance from a concrete batching plant to any nominated delivery location. After some research this led to the development of a computer system based on topological data base concepts and interactive graphics to satisfy the requirements.

Initially the report examines the problem in detail with particular reference to the ready mix concrete industry and the published methodologies available to solve this class of business problem. The paper then explores the requisite components of a computer based solution to define the system requirement specifications. Finally the report enunciates a functional algorithm and describes a computer based' system developed around this algorithm including the functions of data capture and result presentation.
