DEVELOPMENT OF AN EQUIPMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Equipment, an important resource in state highway operations, has in recent years escalated rapidly in both capital replacement and operating cost. West Virginia chose not to follow the trend currently being pursued by several states in developing equipment management systems. The latter were evaluated to be too paper intensive for suitable consideration by top management. The West Virginia Department of Highways Equipment Management System also incorporates innovative approaches to the development and operation of preventive maintenance programs, component rebuild evaluation, shop production control, simplification of parts inventory resupply and record keeping, optimizing fleet size and equipment allocation, and evaluation for replacement and rehabilitation decisions.
