Abstract : The purpose of carrying out inspection on vehicle machinery parts such as engine and gearbox system is to establish their true state and in the process of performing these activities, defects are identified and corrective actions implemented in order to avoid catastrophic failure. The main challenge of inspection is the evaluation of the optimum interval for performing the task. The commonly used technique for determining the interval is the delay time concept which is either applied singly or in conjunction with other tools such as Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) techniques. However, most of the integrated techniques suggested in the literature are computationally intensive. The purpose of this paper therefore, is to develop an integrated tool that can easily be applied for estimating appropriate inspection interval for auto transport company vehicle machinery. The proposed technique combine Compromise Programming method and the delay time model. The efficacy of the method is illustrated with a case of a gearbox system of an auto transport company.
