The objective of the computer program is to provide a cost base and inventory of roadway equipment together with production information on two types of equipment. Input is provided by four sources. Field mechanics and operators report on individual documents each machine repaired and operated, various time factors, cause and type of repair codes, and selected material used. Operators also report production on Tampers and Liners. Source documents with vendor repair invoices coded with the cause and type of repair are provided by the engineering department. Basic inventory information as to cost, machine type, location, special equipment, etc. is also supplied and updated by the engineering department. Management information is provided by inventory production, expense, and equipment reports with information accumulated monthly, last 12 months, and for the life on each machine. The system aids in the decision process of replacing and scheduling equipment.
