INVESTIGATION TOWARDS DEVELOPMENT OF AN EQUIPMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

This report describes the results of an effort by the West Virginia Department of Highways to determine the necessary components of an Equipment Management System. This report represents Twelve months of studying the Department's existing Equipment Management System and parts of many other states' systems. This study revealed that at least Eight Subsystems are necessary to manage equipment fleets as large as those of most state highway departments. The Eight subsystems are: Equipment Inventory & Transfer System; Parts Inventory System; Preventive Maintenance System; Corrective Repair System; Equipment Cost Distribution and Reporting System; Equipment Cannibalization and Replacement System, and Equipment Standardization and Specifications System. Each subsystem will be developed under a subsequent research project.
