Learn how many OEMs are working together with AEMP to develop common data points that can be gathered from a mixed fleet using one program. Learning Objectives: 1. Learn how telematics can help fleet managers gather and maintain common data from the different vehicles in their fleet. 2. Discover how working with AEMP can help your company reap benefits with telematics technology. 3. Implement a telematics program to successfully manage your company’s fleet.

Tuesday, March 4; 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.; Speakers: OEM and fleet manager telematics experts.

Equipment Metrics and Benchmarking – Know What to Measure, Know What to Expect

Learn about the complexities of metrics and benchmarking in the diverse and complex world of equipment management where few universal definitions, norms and standards exist. Fleet activity metrics, such as deployment and utilization are discussed in detail as are input metrics (such as labor hours per operating hour) and output metrics (such as availability and reliability). Examples of each metric are presented. Learning Objectives: 1. Define and use internal benchmarks to ensure fleet management success. 2. Learn how benchmarks metrics can efficiently be grouped into three areas (I) activity metrics which measure work done and fleet activity, (ii) input metrics that measure the resources used to operate your fleet and (iii) output metrics that measure results obtained. 3. Present well-designed data graphics in a concise and easy-to-read format.

Wednesday, March 5; 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.; Speaker: Mike Vorster, president, C.E.M.P. Central

Strategic Maintenance Issues – An Executive Approach to Equipment Maintenance

Preventive and condition based maintenance are seen and accepted as “The right thing to do.” Few managers stop to ask “How much should I do and what should I expect?” The session seeks to answer these questions by describing preventive and condition based maintenance as two steps in a spectrum of possible actions that ranges from daily inspections, through routine maintenance, to repair and rebuild. It stresses the importance of a disciplined, systematic and thorough approach to whatever you do and presents a case study to show how the impact of different maintenance strategies can be quantified and measured. Learning Objectives: 1. Learn the importance of a disciplined, systematic and thorough approach to preventive and condition based maintenance. 2. Quantify the impact of different maintenance policies to realize maintenance as an investment rather than a cost. 3. Understand that good routine maintenance is critical to sustaining the balance between age, cost and reliability in your fleet.

Thursday, March 6; 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Speaker: Mike Vorster
