The task of maintaining transportation infrastructure and coordinating logistics related to transportation sectors such as railways, roadways, airways, and waterways is increasingly complex. However, software such as Transportation Management Systems (TMS), Computer-Aided Dispatch Systems (CAD), and Supply Chain Management (SCM) systems help automate transportation processes, allowing government agencies to efficiently collect highway toll revenue and manage traffic citations, and companies to organize supply-chain resources and monitor the flow of people and goods through GPS and dispatch systems.
Transportation industry disputes may arise when large-scale implementation projects fail, or when a company alleges that its intellectual property related to a transportation system has been infringed. DisputeSoft’s experience with the transportation industry includes a trade secret misappropriation and copyright infringement matter for which it conducted an abstraction-filtration-comparison (AFC) test and developed SQL and C# scripts to assess source code and system architecture of two computer-aided dispatch systems. DisputeSoft also served as an expert in two software failure matters involving traffic violation and toll revenue collection software purchased by government agencies. For these matters, our experts analyzed project documentation and contract deliverables against industry standards to reach findings on percent complete and assess claims of termination for cause.
