Smart Speed is AVID’s tailored fleet maintenance consultancy service, based on the principles of Total Preventative Maintenance (TPM) and Lean Operations, which is used widely to improve the effectiveness of manufacturing operations across the world.
AVID is bringing this methodology to the UK fleet maintenance industry for the first time through its expert consultancy and training packages to provide bespoke solutions for bus operators.
Fleet maintenance is riddled with unknowns and scenarios that operators can’t plan for, but there are also lots of things that are in their control and can be put in place which will enable businesses to respond quickly and efficiently to the unknowns.
Our new system is proven in reducing maintenance programme cost and time. By using TPM and Lean methodology. AVID Smart Speed Consultants have delivered improvements including an 80% increase in workshop throughput and a 62.5% reduction in lead time from 4 weeks to 1.5 weeks for a large maintenance project.
Achieving savings per vehicle can make a major contribution to a company’s bottom line. Likewise failure to address recurring issues across a large fleet can be hugely expensive, which is why we have developed a solution which enables operators to improve maintenance team efficiency and service delivery and significantly reduce maintenance programme costs and lost time.
AVID’s TPM fleet maintenance system focuses on three key areas to improve operational performance for transport operators; management, materials and people.
