Every major equipment manufacturer is encouraging you to give technology a try. Caterpillar is no exception. We believe innovation can help you:
faster and more accurately at a lower cost
even with less experienced operators
While the benefits of technology are easy to understand, the terminology can be confusing. Take a minute to review some of the words and acronyms being tossed around in your industry these days. Getting familiar with the language can help you get comfortable with technology—and that just might get you moving down the path to profitability a little bit faster.
While it’s important to know what the individual terms mean, it’s even more vital to understand how the technologies work together. Data from GNSS-enabled control, indicate and guidance systems, RFID devices and telematics systems is captured and transmitted wirelessly to off-board systems (often based in the cloud), where visualization and analytics tools can be used to gain insights that improve decision-making—and ultimately drive big gains in safety, efficiency and profitability.
The Fundamentals of Equipment Economics is a virtual course from Caterpillar University that will help you understand the equipment lifecycle, reduce downtime and make smarter moves for your business.
