Parts Room: Streamline Your Physical Inventory Process

With the new Parts Room app, the parts manager or other employees can use their Android or iOS device to perform a complete physical inventory for the parts room, or narrow the list by bin, part number range or part type.

Users also can scan the part number for lookup in conjunction with an inventory adjustment.

Predictive Maintenance 201: Beyond Prevention

Preventive maintenance rules of thumb and best practices have been used in fleet shops for decades. Increasingly modern, yet still basic solutions utilize data to focus those general guidelines and turn them into maintenance plans geared for basic equipment monitoring.

Fast forward to the work of today’s proactive and future-focused fleets. Advancing beyond basics, predictive maintenance systems not only monitor, but analyze data from repair orders, fluid analysis, consumption rates, truck telematics, fault codes and other sources to provide predictive information on near-term failures or fault conditions to maintenance directors and their technicians.

Capitalizing on volumes of data, predictive maintenance algorithms keep tractors and trailers rolling smoothly between regularly scheduled shop visits and avoid pending part and system failures. Fewer breakdowns mean higher vehicle uptime, lower maintenance costs and more predictable scheduling and inventories.
