Current Army guidance on economic lives and maintenance man-hour standards for Administrative Use Vehicles AUV dates from 1963. This study was requested to update that guidance. Data from the TRADOC Administrative Use Vehicle Management System and a special Sample Data Collection effort were analyzed using linear regression techniques. Estimates of maintenance man-hour requirements based on vehicle age and yearly usage were developed for ten vehicle types. Economic lives in age and in accumulated mileage were developed for the same ten vehicles types. Three recommendations are made as a result of this study 1 that the study results for maintenance man-hour standards and economic lives be adopted, along with a schedule for future reviews of this guidance 2 that an Army organization be given the responsibilities and resources to periodically review economic lives and maintenance man-hour standars, to expand this study to additional vehicle types within the AUV fleet and to other fleets, such as the Maintenance and Service Vehicles, and to develop improved methodology and 3 that consideration be given to the establishment of an Army-wide AUV maintenance management data base in order to facilitate future analyses.
