The Lock Performance Monitoring System (PMS) ils a part of the Inland Navigation Systems Analysis (INSA) program and encompasses the collection, editing, maintenance and analysis of data collected at all Corps-owned and operated locks. The data have been collected since March of 1975 and consist of information describing the traffic through the locks as well as the physical aspects of lockages. PMS data are collected at the locks, edited by the districts and added to the Corps PMS library monthly. Monthly summary data, lock standards data and detailed lockage and vessel data are created each time the central library is updated. The data may be extracted from the library and processed through locally developed programs, any of the forty standard PMS report programs, the INSA computer models and programs, or may be used as input to special studies. Additionally, the data may be used by operations personnel to monitor the physical performance of their locks and by Corps planners to study or project the characteristics of traffic on specific segments of the waterway and predict the impact of system changes. This User's Manud provides instructions for using the analysis program designed for using the Lock Performance Monitoring System (PMS) data.
