29In addition to the above certain periodical works like Refurbishing of Special type vehicles, Chemical washing of Seats are also incorporated in the Preventive maintenance programmes
30Programming of Preventive Maintenance Schedules at Depots The advance planning of vehicles for various preventive maintenance activities is obtained through computer software called “Vehicle Maintenance System” (VEMAS).The due dates, done dates and coverage of Kms etc for all types of maintenance activities are generated by VEMAS
33Sch-I MaintenanceSchedule-I or Daily Maintenance is carried out in two shifts.All the vehicles after completion of the scheduled operation undergo Sch-I Maintenance.Sweeping, Cleaning & Washing of buses, Arresting leakages of water, fuel, oils, replenishing the levels, tightening of all bolts and nuts, Checking of road springs & their mountings, Rectification of defects pointed out by Drivers, Inspection of Tyres and minor coach works are taken up in Sch-I.The works allotted & works attended in Sch-I are recorded by the Shift Incharge Supervisor duly obtaining the Signatures of the concerned.
34Vehicle Back History Register DateComplaints on thecondition of vehicleFailuresRemarksof theSupervisorwho supervisedthe repairs/maintenanceSignatureof AE/ DMAs perlogsheetTyre Mech.ObservationVBH register is a very important register in maintenance management. It gives complete picture of the health of the vehicles. The repetitive nature of complaints depicts the quality of scheduled maintenance at the depot. The vehicle defects shall be thoroughly reviewed by the Sch-III/IV maintenance incharge before docking the vehicle and ensure that root cause for the defect is totally eliminated during Sch-III/IV maintenance.
35Sch-II MaintenanceEvery vehicle undergoes Sch-II Maintenance once in a week (Excluding those undergone Sch-III/IV) for about 2-3 hoursIn addition to all the activities of Sch-I, the following works are taken up in Sch-IIComplete washing through MWPLubricating all grease pointsCleaning of BreathersAir Cleaner maintenanceBattery MaintenanceTyres rotationSteering & Brake test
36Sch-III & IV Maintenance Sch-III/IV Maintenance is carried out based on the prescribed mileage. The vehicle is docked for 8 hrs in General shift.One senior most Supervisor is deployed at each depot to look after Sch-III/IV maintenance.Two Mechanics & Two assistants for Sch-III and Three Mechanics & 3 Assistants for Sch-IV are deployed per vehicle in addition to the Artisans.All major repair & maintenance works are carried out in Sch-III/IV maintenance.The vehicles are inspected before docking & after completion to ensure qualityThe workdone along with signature of the concerned are recorded in a register
37Important aspects while docking the vehicles for Sch-III/IV Take up the vehicle for maintenance at the right time. Avoid delay/backlog.Inform the fixed Drivers about docking of vehicles for Sch-III/IV.Ensure thorough washing/MWP before docking.Synchronize other maintenance activities like FC, Unit changes, Filter/Oil/Coolant changes, Body attention, Painting etc with Sch-III/IV to save manpower & vehicle days
38Important Coach works covered during Sch-III/IV Tightening of all Body U’bolts, cabin foundation bolts.Repairs to damaged body panels, exterior & interior roof panels, parcel racks, Luggage carrier, ladder & unloaderRepairs to Stepwell, stanchions, Passenger Assist rails, Driver partition, flooring, Dashboard, Engine hood, Entrance door & Driver’s doorDicky doors, locks and gas springs in Special type vehiclesContd..

41Manpower Planning for Preventive Maintenance at Depots
42Manpower planning is an essential prerequisite in Depot Maintenance Head Office communicates sanctions for each category of manpower by working out the requirement based on the average schedules operated by an unit during the period from July to December.The requirement of Supervisors and Artisans is worked out based on the slabs in schedules.The arrived norm based on the slabs is generally adopted for staff requirement at depotsFilling of vacancies either through direct recruitment or through promotion is strictly based on sanctions only
43The success of Depot Maintenance management primarily depends on proper deployment of manpower and effective utilization of their servicesHighly skilled and experienced men shall be deployed in major maintenance programmes like Sch-III/IV, H.R.G and KMPL works.Senior most supervisor of the Depot next to Maintenance Incharge shall be assinged to look after of General Shift maintenance.

48Manpower deployment for shift maintenance Deployment of manpower for Sch-I/II maintenance shall be done carefully keeping the number of vehicles to be maintained in each shift into considerationThe allocation of man power should match the buses to be maintained in that shift based on bus schedules. Allocation of manpower dis- proportionate to the number of buses will lead to underutilization of men and ineffective maintenanceCare shall be taken to ensure adequate manpower during night shifts as majority of the vehicles undergo Sch-I/II maintenance during this shift.
49Outsourcing activities at Depots In order to overcome shortage of manpower, and difficulties in filling of vacancies, APSRTC is outsourcing certain maintenance activities like Cleaning, sweeping & washing of Buses, HSD oil Top-up, Semi-skilled men as Assistant to Mechanics etc at Depots for smooth maintenance of vehicles.
50Outsourcing activities at Depots It is equally important for Supervisors to monitor the deployment of men by the outsourcing agencies and their quality of work.It is the responsibility of the Supervisors to ensure proper work allocation to the outsourced men.Supervisors shall also ensure the safety of the workers engaged through outsourcingThe records of attendance, details of work done etc, pertaining to outsourcing shall be maintained properly by the Supervisor concerned.
52Provision of required tools, plants and equipment for smooth maintenance of vehicles is of highest importance in Depot Maintenance management.Depot Clerk is the custodian of all Mechanic tools, special tools, plants and machinery available in the Depot. The ‘T&P Return’ shall be maintained properly indicating the locality of each & every item of the Garage.

68Float aggregates are essential resource inputs for depot maintenance. The purpose of providing float aggregates is to make available important units readily available at the depots at all times so that the defective units are replaced immediately and the vehicles are put onroad.Inadequacy/ non-availability of float units affect the Fleet utilization, punctuality of operations and earning potentiality of a depot.Over-provisioning of floats leads to excessive inventory lock-up
69The requirement of Float aggregates depends on the volume of operations, lead time of supply and the average life of the aggregates.The Mechanical Engineering Department, from time to time; decide the list of float aggregate units to be provided to the depots.Floats are also provided for Workshops as an in-process inventory for uninterrupted supply to the depots and maintain optimum service levels.
70No.of Float aggregates = (N/n - C) x t x a The following formula is adopted in assessing the requirement of floats for a depot.No.of Float aggregates =(N/n - C) x t x a(Subject to a minimum of 1)Where,N = Operated Kmsn = average life of aggregate in Kmst = Lead time replenishment in days which is the period that elapses between the day of removal of defective unit to the day of replacement being received from workshops or the day of completion of repair in the depot if such repair is within the permissible repairs of depot.C = Complete overhauls demand per daya = Number of units per vehicle

92APSRTC’s Environmental Concerns APSRTC always takes lead in sharing the public concern on automobile pollution and climate change.APSRTC is a forerunner in introducing environment friendly vehicles through product upgradation and innovative measures especially in the area of alternate fuels and pollution control.Continued…
93APSRTC’s Environmental Concerns Sophisticated Electronic Smoke Meters are provided to Depots to check the smoke emission levels of buses at regular intervals.With a commitment towards mitigation of GHG emissions and reduction of smoke levels, APSRTC has started using Biofuels and Compressed Natural Gas on large scale.APSRTC installed 40 Wind Turbines to generate green power to an extent of 10 Mw of Electrical energy
94APSRTC launched 100 CNG buses in Vijayawada City during the year 2006, which is first of its kind in South India.The number of CNG buses has been increased to 300 in Vijayawada.Introduced 120 CNG buses recently in Hyderabad which include Ultra Low Floor Buses with BS-III/IV compliant CNG rear Engine model is under progress.The Fuel efficiency of CNG buses in VJA is 4.40 km/kg and in Hyd it is 4.49 km/kg
101Experiences with Biodiesel As a stake holder in promoting the use of biofuels, APSRTC had promptly responded to the call given by the Govt. of Andhra Pradesh and started trials using Biodiesel blended fuel on one City bus, in June’2005.The vehicle was operated with B20 fuel for 8 months to assess the operational feasibility and performance in respect to fuel efficiency and emission reduction. Intermittently the vehicle was also operated with 100% HSD fuel for 2 months for comparison
102Emission levels of Biodiesel Vehicle during trial period Against the maximum permissible smoke density of 65 Hatridge units, the following emission levels were observed on the vehicle when operated with 20% Bio-diesel.Jun-0541.3Aug-0535.4Sep-0536.2Oct-0532.6Nov-0535.0Dec-0511.8Feb-0625.0Mar-0611.7

105Extended trials with Biodiesel The trial was extended to three more vehicles at the same Depot with 5%, 10% and 20% blends respectively. It was observed during the trials that the vehicle with 20% blend shown improvement in fuel efficiency by 0.27 Km/Lt.The trials were conducted with the Biodiesel supplied by M/S Southern Online Biotechnologies Limited.
107Several firms like M/s Cleancities Bio-diesel India limited, M/S Naturol Bioenergy Limited and M/S Universal Biofuels Pvt. Limited have come forward to offer Bio-diesel for conducting wider trials.The trials were extended to other regions like Visakhapatnam and East Godavari, where all the vehicles of 4 depots were operated with Biodiesel blended in 1:9 ratio for about one month.
108With the encouraging trial performance, Corporation has taken a decision to use Bio-diesel at 10% blend on regular basis for all vehicles in the 12 Depots of Hyderabad City Zone in the first phase by procuring the Bio-diesel from M/S Southern Online Biotechnologies LimitedThe supplier had installed a separate overhead tank for biodiesel storage and made necessary arrangements to mix the Biodiesel with the HSD oil in the fixed proportion.
109In the second phase, tenders were floated in September 2009 for bulk procurement of Bio-diesel at an estimated quantity of 30 Million liters for regular blending at 129 Depots in 14 Regions.The supply contract was awarded to three firms viz, M/S Cleancities Bio-diesel India limited (108 Depots), M/S Southern Online Biotechnologies Limited (12 Depots) and M/S Universal Biofuels Pvt (9 Depots)

115Some of the barriers in large scale application of Biodiesel Availability and uninterrupted supply of biodiesel is a major constraint for large scale application in APSRTC.Very few firms have come forward to supply the Biodiesel in bulk quantity at a viable priceIt is difficult to assess the quality of the product at the user levelThere is scope for non-adherence to the prescribed specifications by the suppliers in the absence of required testing facilities.Contd…
116It is difficult to send the samples to the laboratories too frequently. The blending becomes uneconomical if the suppliers quote exorbitant prices due to monopolyPremature clogging of filters is more prevalent while using Biodiesel
