An overview of all automotive repair tasks will be reviewed. Analysis of pertinent tasks for fleet maintenance will emerge and be coupled with labor and price guides time on task evaluations, absolute necessity, intervals of inspection, safety concerns, failure records, component life cycles and environmental issues. Further analysis will reveal decision-making process for in-house repairs or out-sourcing component failure records and vendor responsibilities will be discussed along with fleet discount structure and avenues of saving time, inventory and other overhead to ultimately make the organization efficient. Record-keeping systems and the development of a fleet maintenance log will be implemented. Written report will include a fleet maintenance guide.
