Effect of Data Processing on Ground Transportation Fleet Management 680154
Perhaps the most important requirement in a large fleet is to control effectively equipment maintenance costs and inventories, with emphasis on vehicle replacement policy, optimum life expectancy, and repair guidance. Data processing is the only practical way to obtain such information as is needed to achieve these ends.
This paper describes how a broad concept using data processing is applied to managing a ground transportation fleet. A program to preplan and control vehicle maintenance and replacement is described.
