5 Ways Using Equipment Data Can Help Improve Your Operations


1. Look for Excess Idle Time

Use equipment data to compare idle vs. working time, then move equipment around to keep it busy.

2. Right-Size Your Fleet

Idle time tracking can tell you when you can get by with fewer machines and still get your work done. It will also help you see where you need to add a machine to reduce work bottlenecks.

3. Get The Big Picture

Bring all your fleet data together in one place. Getting a big-picture fleet overview can help you identify duplicated efforts and inefficient maintenance practices.


4. Plan Service to Avoid Surprises

Use electronic scheduling to plan service and maintenance downtime around your production schedule. Don’t wait for a machine to break down unexpectedly and stop your work in its tracks.

5. Train Your Operators to Be Aware

Get your operators to pay attention to in-cab equipment alerts. Quick action by an operator can help keep a machine out of the shop and on the job.
