The 2017 NAFA I&E offers fleet professionals a full week of high quality fleet management education sessions, which are current and relevant to their success. During the Using Predictive Analytics to Optimize Vehicle Replacement Decisions session, attendees will learn:

  • The advantages of using a predictive model to make vehicle replacement recommendations
  • The factors that are most useful in predicting increased vehicle cost as the vehicle ages and/or vehicle failure
  • How this new methodology can simplify the vehicle replacement decision process
