Pursuit Of Maintenance

 

A little bit ago we were working on the development of the new inventory and work order/preventative maintenance program.
One of the road commissions supervisors asked us to look at the VMRS.

VMRS? What is that you may ask like we did. It is an industry standard used for vehicle maintenance developed and maintained by the ATA (American Trucking Association), but let them describe the system better.

Developed by the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC), the leading voice on industry best practices, VMRS™ is the universal language of maintenance reporting—the vital link between the shop floor and management.

ATA’s VMRS helps you create a single process to:

  • Simplify, Clarify and Unify with ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards
  • Create a Single Concise Method to Manage Fleet Assets and Analyze Maintenance Operations and Costs
  • Document when, why, and how maintenance is performed on equipment.
  • Improve equipment and parts inventory control.
  • Identify where money is spent.
  • Help control costs and create greater efficiency.
  • Manage a wide variety of equipment, including trucks of all types cars, buses, vans, construction equipment, and more.

We would like to fully embrace the methods and codes that this system entails.

But before we spend any more time, is this what the maintenance and inventory people want?

So please check out the VMRS system and let us know, via email to president@cogitateinc.com, what you think.
George Loescher, President
