Predictive Maintenance for Automotive Fleet Management
Agriculture, mining, construction and cargo
Engines and transmissions
Develop a predictive solution for early detection and diagnosis of engine and transmission failure in ﬂeet vehicles
Predicted component degradation and prevented engine and transmission failure in ﬂeet vehicles, reducing unplanned downtime, prioritizing maintenance scheduling, increasing proﬁt margins, and preventing wasted resources and manpower
Predictronics has developed many predictive solutions for ﬂeet vehicle management in heavy industrial applications such as mining, agriculture, construction and cargo. In ﬂeet vehicles, engine and transmission failures are the most signiﬁcant, as both are integral system components and both cost companies a great deal of expense to replace and repair. Predictronics solutions offer accurate and actionable insights to help customers avoid unexpected failures, improve maintenance planning, and prevent wasted resources and proﬁts.
Predictronics team members have experience creating data-driven solutions from vehicle CAN bus data provided by our clients in ﬂeet management. The large volume of data from on-vehicle sensors provides Predictronics with the information needed to create baseline health index models with which to compare current sensor patterns. Through robust analysis methods and approaches, Predictronics monitors the health of each distinct vehicle type and subsystem and generates prediction models that detect early warning signals of component degradation in engines and transmissions.
The customizable and versatile solutions created by Predictronics provide numerous beneﬁts to customers in ﬂeet vehicle management. Through vehicle health monitoring, Predictronics can help clients reduce unplanned downtime and prioritize maintenance scheduling. By performing predictive maintenance, companies can more easily reach productivity goals, enhance fuel economy, avoid wasted resources and manpower, and prevent lost proﬁts margins. Data-driven solutions also improve the ﬁrst-time ﬁx rate, allowing businesses to discover the root of the problem in a timely and more efﬁcient manner.
With a Predictronics solution to prevent engine and transmission failure, mining customers can employ preventative maintenance to enhance fuel economy and potentially save more in lost proﬁts due to ﬂeet vehicle downtime than their earnings from a single mining construction site, with typical costs averaging at about $180,000 per incident.
By predicting engine and transmission failure, Predictronics can ensure ﬂeet vehicle uptime and efﬁciency for agricultural customers through preventative maintenance, as well as potentially save customers anywhere from $8 - $156 an hour per vehicle in fuel, repair, and general costs.
