The subject of this assignment relates to multiple departments within DAF. The main goal is to develop a data driven method to identify a detailed concept of the vehicle application (what is the truck’s behavior, what sort of trips does it make, how many stops does it make per day), and its impact on R&M repair costs. This will be achieved by combining data from multiple sources; DAF Connect, warranty & R&M claims, truck specifications and contract coverage.

In short, the following results are expected:

  • Provide a clear definition of the concept of vehicle application
  • Define inputs that improve the accuracy of the expected R&M costing
  • Create consensus across multiple departments based on your findings
  • Provide useful advise of how your results can be embedded in DAF business processes
