The preventive maintenance program may be defined by the period between maintenance actions, the time the vehicle is removed from service for preventive maintenance work, and the cost of the periodic preventive maintenance. Total maintenance cost is the sum of the cost of parts, labor, and material used for scheduled preventive maintenance; and the costs of parts, labor, and material used for unscheduled repairs of vehicles that break down between scheduled maintenance actions. Level of service is more difficult to define quantitatively, and is discussed in detail.
