Plant and fleet booking

    Good Afternoon

    How does other on this platform capture the booking of Plant and Fleet,
    We use a mix of plant and Fleet being journaled where a piece of equipment is assigned to one Job No and equipment booked on the timesheets on daily basis when being used by work groups
    Does anyone  use a stand rate for internal hire ?
    How do other organization capture plant and equipment bookings when the employee is hired through a labor hire company?
    Our council runs Tech One were I can easily pull report of hours a piece of equipment is booked and then journal the missing hours at the end of the month, but we are always having to follow up and this is time consuming.
    Ideally I would like to have all the plant and fleet on standing journals then the work groups would know how much they have to budget for the hire of internal plant each year and would force each work group to review the amount of plant and equipment needed to run their operations,

    Hopefully we can share some ideas,

    Hi Stanley
    IPWEA FLEET's approach to establishing internal hire rates is that the rate is based on the actual cost to hold and operate the asset (this rate may be standardised across an asset type). The IPWEA on-line Whole of Life Cost tool can be used to establish hire rates along with replacement reserve allocation. Let me know if you need a hand accessing the WOL Cost tool.
