It is also possible to keep account on failure of parts, so that a detailed analysis can be made on affected parts and implement programs to reduce the cost.
The maintenance system helps schedule of planned maintenance events and to track unplanned and exception repairs. Those repairs can also be compared against the hours of use to see if a truck is getting more or less hours between repairs than is expected or if the truck is getting more maintenance than is necessary for the hours of operation. Together, they provide a snapshot of how the truck is performing and how it is being maintained.
