Case study notes[1]


Computer-aided dispatch (CAD), also called computer-assisted dispatch, is a way of dispatching (sending off to specific destination) mass transit vehicles or emergency services assisted by a computer.

CAD systems may be interconnected with automatic vehicle location systems, mobile data terminals, office telephones, and selective calling and push-to-talk ID.

How does it work or a deeper look[edit]

  • If you are discussing a THING YOU CAN TOUCH, you must explain how it works, and the parts it is made of. Google around for an "exploded technical diagram" of your thing, maybe like this example of an MRI It is likely you will reference outside links. Please attribute your work.
  • If you are discussing a PROCESS OR ABSTRACT CONCEPT (like fuzzy logic) you must deeply explain how it works.


Spillman Flex Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD): Spillman Flex’s computer-aided dispatch software is specifically designed and engineered for full multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional dispatching capabilities. Agencies that dispatch for multiple disciplines (Law, Fire, and EMS) can easily share call information, add additional disciplines, and keep all parties informed and up-to-date with the latest call information.
