Has he replaced the alternator? He might have a bad wire somewhere that is shorting out and pulling the volts down

First thing to do, if he hasn't already, is make sure it's not just the gauge reading erratically. When it's down, he should measure the actual voltage at the battery. If it's good, then it's a bad gauge. If it's low, then like az said, a few things to check up front.
Could be a deteriorating ground cable. A deteriorating alternator. Or a combination thereof.

Any more clues? Like what circumstances when it started, how long it's been doing it, stuff like that.
