When looking at the tire maintenance work
in a truck fleet, it is evident that the unplanned
corrective maintenance is the most frequent. In this
sense, the objective of this work was to develop
maintenance engineering to improve tire management
in a fleet. The work adopted the case study as its
methodological approach and the company studied is a
carrier, which serves the entire Brazilian territory and
has more than 5,000 tires in its fleet running as assets.
As a result, this work presents a tire management
model, based on the correlation between all stages of
maintenance in a fleet and maintenance engineering.
Thus, it was possible to conclude that the proposed tire
management model works, is economically viable and
reduces the environmental impact of the truck fleet. As
a suggestion, other research could be carried out with
the model, on a larger scale and in other countries.
