State highway agency equipment fleet assets are vital to the delivery of agency programs, projects, and services. Measuring, monitoring, and reporting on asset utilization levels are necessary for the management of the equipment fleet and meeting the highway agency’s business needs.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program'sNCHRP Research Report 957: Utilization Measurement and Management of Fleet Equipment is both a handbook on equipment utilization concepts and a guide for making cost-effective equipment utilization decisions.

The Utilization Prediction and Management Software allows the user to:

• estimate equipment utilization and manage the fleet at a region-level based on available measurable information

• identify equipment that is under- or over-utilized, needs to be salvaged, or needs to be relocated; and

• identify the fleet management strategy that minimizes the total fleet management costs.
