inspections or the designated inspection group
for each vehicle. From this determination, a
schedule can be established providing a quota of
vehicles for inspection daily that will provide a
balanced shop workload. A vehicle/construction
equipment service record form similar to that
shown in figure 1-4 should be used to record
service intervals and service performed.
PROGRESS CONTROL AND SHOP
Control, positive direction of shop workloads,
is achieved through current information on direct
labor available in shop work centers, backlog
man-hours by work center, and man-hours
One means is a transportation
maintenance shop workload control board (fig.
1-5) to display the workload status of the
shop/work centers. The indicator on each line can
be moved across the scale to show current
standard hours of backlog. This board may also
show the available man-hours by shop or
Progress in obtaining the most availability of
safe working equipment within budget restrictions
may be charted as required by local commands.
