Complete Vehicle Remanufacture (CVR) - A Cost Effective Solution for the Fleet Operator 922494
After fleet vehicles have been in service for several years, the operator is faced with the task of deciding when to replace these vehicles. This decision is based on the analysis of several parameters. These are salvage value, current interest rates, and maintenance costs. However, retiring the vehicle does not have to be the only alternative faced by the operator. The concept of Complete Vehicle Remanufacture (CVR) can be a cost-effective solution. The body of this paper will discuss the analysis of determining when to retire a certain vehicle from its' original manufactured state, as well as the feasibility of remanufacturing that vehicle and the steps involved in this process. The advantages to the CVR process such as economics, operating cost savings, vehicle reliability and the concern over liability and accident prevention will be discussed.
