APWA 2011 - LAC Spoke on equipment optimization with Volusia County


Equipment Optimization Evaluation - Please Step Away From Your Truck 


It is time to make tough decisions on equipment use and optimization. Learn from two agencies that analyzed the annual use and cost of each piece of equipment in conjunction with an analysis of actual work performed with the equipment. This presentation will outline how to use CMMS and fleet systems to determine equipment use along with benchmarks for decision-making equipment and fleet needs. 

By attending this session, participants will be better able to: 

Identify low-use equipment. Identify processes that can be improved through proper equipment use. Determine how to implement this concept in your agency.
