for large and small districts alike. That means that shop forepersons and supervisors may focus on parts brands that best serve them. So, data may be accumulated to help negotiate vol- ume price discounts based on buying commitments. Trends of bus repair and maintenance may be observed to see the history of part failure and lifecycle. Paperwork may be reduced to a mini- mum, if not altogether eliminated. Plus, a specific bus may be analyzed


to review the maintenance history for the last part that was used in that bus. In other words, a parts inventory management system helps drive better continuous monitoring and decisions, which ultimately leads to a return on investment that helps justify the soft- ware license fees.


Lean Inventory Management Without the Paperwork Other school fleets are using parts inventory software solutions with


considerable success. Those solutions automate most of the procurement process, thereby making parts manage- ment leaner than ever before. Sumner County Schools in Americus,


Georgia, has a total of 65 buses from all three major school bus manufacturers. The district uses Versatrans FleetVision by Tyler Technologies, with an inventory management system that is integral to its functionality. Mark Harnage, the fleet manager at


Sumner County Schools, told School Transportation News that the software is a useful tool that alleviates the burden of manual parts management. Plus, it provides a reasonable inventory level based on history, which helps to avoid the situation of parts not being available when a repair is ready to begin. “On the fast-moving parts, we can


print out purchase reports, depending on the frequency and how many of those particular parts we buy,” Harnage stressed.


47% of operations say they use parts inventory management software


53% of operations do not use parts inventory management software


(Out of 146 responses to a recent School Transportation News survey.)


THIS REVOLUTIONARY “SMART SUSPENSION” SYSTEM ADJUSTS IN MILLISECONDS FOR THE ULTIMATE IN COMFORT AND SAFETY


With proven technological advances, LiquidSpring® offers school bus passengers and drivers the best in an affordable control-enhancing suspension.


“I tested the limits with my staff, going around corners fast and making aggressive lane changes. I wanted to see if the body roll was different; it was. I couldn’t get the passengers to slide out of their seats, which had happened when I was a new driver.”
