DIAGNOSTICS
nications that provide actionable data and
information will continue to accelerate
change, as well as prescriptive maintenance
solutions that prevent costly occurrences in
a fleet's network.

The impact on maintenance

Technology gives today's businesses the
power to not only predict failures, but it
allows them to proactively prescribe a corrective course of action and use that information to streamline business practices. Keep
in mind that prescriptive maintenance is
much more than using past histories to
make assumptions of what will happen in the
future. Big data analytics assesses the oper-

ational characteristics of a fleet's equipment
and determines a path to prevent unplanned
costly maintenance. That is a drastic change
from the fix-as-fail unplanned events to a
fix-as-prescribed planned event.
A well-maintained vehicle is a safe vehicle
that is also a reliable vehicle. Not only does
this increase equipment availability, but it
also saves time and money.

Current maintenance practices are time- or
mileage-based. While most
make component replacements based on a pre-determined pull point, sometimes
a replacement occurs only
after a component has failed.
When breaking down maintenance, it basically divides
into two main categories:
scheduled or unscheduled.
One can assume that
an unscheduled repair is
more costly than a scheduled, controlled repair. The
unscheduled event can occur
anywhere and involves much
more than just the cost for
the component, labor, or even
a tow. Most times, drivers are
involved in this unplanned
event and the cost to move
around equipment, drivers,
and the recovery of any of
the above end up eating into
profit directly.
The other problem is that
no warranty covers this
additional loss while out on
the road, including missing
a tight delivery window. In
EXHAUST & EMISSIONS
a worst-case scenario, an
unscheduled repair could
shut down a manufacturing
plant or cause a fleet to lose a
customer, in the end leaving
a long-lasting drain on the
operation and reputation.
Imagine how great it
would be under constant
AFTERTREATMENT
monitoring where prescriptive action is taken to avoid
any unplanned downtime.
Connectivity, uptime, safety, big data analytics, and
visibility will be the key
technology focal points as
the industry moves into
the equipment needed for
tomorrow's technologies and
demands of today.
BRAKE SYSTEMS
Innovation will be driven by regulation and the
need for greater visibility,
coupled with efficiency, to
combat the industry's issues.
