Data Processing Applications for Routing, Scheduling, and Maintaining Motor Vehicles 660065
Data processing applications for motor vehicle maintenance typically include cost control or record keeping, application of garage labor standards, scheduling preventive maintenance or general repairs, timing of vehicle replacements, and new vehicle component selection. Fleet operators starting data processing control of maintenance operations should define long-range objectives, develop detailed plans, perform careful evaluations of data requirements, prepare estimates of costs for alternative systems, and plan a coordinated implementation program. The cost saving advantages claimed for data processing maintenance control systems often include improvements in basic management systems and procedures which can be realized without data processing techniques. The routing and scheduling of vehicles with data processing equipment is an advanced technology which requires prior data processing experience.
