Computerized Preventive Maintenance - Is it Worthwhile? 710668

The costs of truck maintenance record keeping can be significantly reduced by the use of predesigned computer programs. Sufficient maintenance detail may be recorded, classified, and presented in a manner which will enable management to make meaningful maintenance evaluations of their fleet. These programs can provide historical as well as current maintenance data on each unit within a given fleet. Data, initially recorded on forms by the individual mechanic or driver, is edited by clerical people and electronically recorded. The records are then converted into specific maintenance cost reports classified by both vehicle and fleet.
