Abstract: This paper highlights the development of an automatic software that maintain the crew details, crew schedules and priority of the crews in Indian Railways according to sections using an auto Timer System, that uses J2EE technology. It is also used to find the status of the crew and their working hours in the division using indicators. The software has five modules that are named as Loco info, Section points, LP Schedule and Priority, Remainder and Graph module, Loco Inspector Movement. The software helps in maintaining and retrieving the crew details. The auto timer system which is the heart of the software maintains the information about the number of working hours. If the number exceeds eight it automatically relieves the loco pilot of his duty by sending him an SMS. The number of working hours are extended depending upon the will of the loco pilot.
