The use is briefly described of the GEMS vehicle maintenance management system, to manage the maintenance of 3,900 city and county vehicles and miscellaneous units in Indianapolis. GEMS was selected by the Indianapolis' Central Equipment Management Division (CEMD) because of its on-line capabilities. CEMD consists of 2 main garages and provides service for more than 1,700 licensed vehicles and 2,200 other pieces of equipment. Information pertaining to all repairs is centralized at one location. The Indianapolis Police and Fire Departments and Department of Transportation have terminals, allowing each agency's vehicle supervisor on-line access to the repair facility computer. A combination of management techniques and the GEMS system has resulted in a significant reduction in obsolete parts inventroy, better control of maintenance operations and costs, and more efficient scheduling of manpower.
