THE USE OF ANNUAL MAINTENANCE COST LIMITS FOR VEHICLE FLEET REPLACEMENT

The paper reports a study of the determination of an optimal replacement policy for transport fleet vehicles in the 7/8 ton load carrying capacity. Comments are made about the limitations of the constant economic life approach to replacement decisions. The concept of an annual maintenance cost limit approach is suggested and used to set replacement decisions for a fleet of 150 similar vehicles. /TRRL/
