OEM Data Delivery has created a suite of asset-tracking technologies and software that collect, store, transfer and display data to help businesses make better decisions regarding their equipment and personnel.
Components of the OEM Data Delivery off-highway equipment management system
There are three main components of our off-highway management system: the tracking device (TRACK), the data server (CAPTURE) and the user interface (DELIVER).
- Tracking device: This is the WiFi or Bluetooth®-equipped device that is installed in your equipment. The device captures information such as fuel usage, engine temperature, idling information, geo-location, as well as many other possible pieces of data and relays it to a remote data server.
- Data server: This receives the data and either stores it or transfers it to your tracking device. The data server is capable of serving up the information that the user requires via the user interface.
- User interface: This is what managers see on-screen. They work with the user interface through various devices such as computer, tablet or smartphone in order to access information, monitor dashboards and generate reports.
Real-time data and passive tracking
Tracking devices are either passive or active. Passive systems store the information that is collected from the device. When the piece of equipment returns to storage or is parked at the end of a shift, the tracking device can be removed and the data downloaded to a computer. An active tracking system, on the other hand, connects to a network and transmits data while the equipment is active or in motion. An active tracking system is the type of setup that provides real-time, up-to-the minute information.
Reviewing the data
Some of the most common categories used in data collection are:
View the locations and even the travel routes of all your equipment in a single window. Know which are stationary and which are in motion. View a smaller subset of your assets or the entire inventory. Pan out to cover vast geographical areas or zoom in to retrieve information on a single vehicle.
Vehicle Information and Operation.
Get a detailed view of each vehicle or piece of equipment in your fleet. Set up feedback systems based on operator or equipment behavior.
Engine Behavior and Maintenance.
Provides a detailed look into engine faults, measurements and diagnostics. Predict, schedule and record maintenance.
Apart from all these is the activity data. This information is divided into several categories, such as risk management, speed profile, work hours and accidents.
Making the most of your data
See how your equipment and drivers are doing at any particular time, check out dashboards and get an overview of all pertinent data. The dashboard provides graphical reports that highlight critical behaviors and events all on one page for your entire inventory.
- Generate more comprehensive, analytical reports that detail the usage, and trends happening in your worksite.
- Use reports to increase productivity, predict maintenance, identify opportunities, eliminate waste and increase safety.
The power of asset tracking technology is that it enables you to see high-level information at-a-glance, yet allows you drill-down further if necessary.
Of course all of this is possible because of OEM Data Delivery’s ability to fully integrate into your existing system or create a custom system for your specific needs. A complete off-highway equipment management solution.
