Maintenance: How to Minimize Unscheduled Repairs

One of the primary goals of a successful maintenance organization is to schedule as many of its maintenance and repair activities as possible. When equipment downtime is unscheduled, costs go up, productivity and efficiency go down, and component life suffers. By using the health data that comes from machines, mines can adopt a more proactive approach to maintenance and repair. But sorting through all of that data can be a challenge in and of itself. Fortunately, Cat dealers have access to a web-based tool that combines sophisticated analytics with Caterpillar and Cat dealer expertise to use that data to make informed decisions about maintenance and repair. This video illustrates this tool and shows a side-by-side comparison of how it worked for Cat 795 trucks on a mine site in Chile.
