CMMS Fleet Maintenance
Software for Fleet, Vehicle, & Equipment Maintenance
An agenda for the workshop is provided in Appendix B.
The purpose of this document is to present an industry-relevant Multiyear Program Plan
(MYPP) for research directed toward reducing friction and wear in heavy-duty vehicles. The
bulk of the document will summarize the results of the workshop and of the preliminary
meetings with industry, upon which the plan is based. Ultimately, this and other specific MYPPs
will be combined into an umbrella MYPP for the OHVT.
Figure 2. Approaches to Fuel Savings in OHVT Program
Management of the Friction and Wear R&D Program is the responsibility of the Team Leader
for Vehicle System Technologies, who reports to the Director of the Office of Heavy Vehicle
Technologies within the DOE Office of Transportation Technologies.
Project selection will be based on priorities as established by this plan, advice from industry, and
available budget. Planning and R&D implementation will be closely coordinated with related
activities within DOE and other agencies that sponsor work in Heavy Vehicle
Technologies. R&D projects will be placed through procurement and nonprocurement
mechanisms with industry, academia, independent researchers, and national laboratories.
The Heavy Vehicle Technologies Program supports the R&D of advanced technologies directly
with engine and vehicle manufacturers and with fuel developers and producers to ensure
that the technologies are transferred to appropriate customers who are ultimately responsible for
commercializing the end products.
