Business Processes Improved with Engine Angel

Some of the business processes that have been improved using these types of analytics are:

  • Fleet culling with ranking assets by performance and cost-of-Ownership
  • New technology evaluation based on testing in your fleet
  • Driver retention and improvement with Driver Performance Analysis incorporating vehicle condition
  • Improve fuel economy by detecting quantified asset performance declines for earlier corrective action.
  • Reduced time operating assets with performance issues – identify emerging problems quicker, reducing hauling costs & reducing risk of urgent substitution of equipment & drivers
  • More satisfied drivers with fewer trip disruptions and delays
  • Reduced diagnostic time, diagnostics accurate more often means less time OOS
  • Fewer fines/OOS tags for equipment out of compliance; lower insurance costs
  • Improved customer satisfaction from fewer delayed deliveries
  • PM scheduling and parts inventories based on End-of-Life calculations (reduced asset downtime, fewer on-road repairs, more effective inventory investments and space usage)

What value do we provide?

  • Rank your assets by Performance with Occupation by geographic location.
  • Increase the asset useful life by more timely maintenance/repairs.
  • Help Fleet operators with vehicle culling decisions
  • Show issues with the engine to estimate cost for bringing it to viability to do the needed work. Then decide to fix or replace.
  • Trade in (or exchange) vehicles that cost you more per revenue generated than the rest, taking into account the driver’s skill.
  • Identify driver strengths and weaknesses for fewer crashes & fines and improved fuel economy, taking into account the condition of the vehicle that has been assigned.
  • Allows you to put in place a data-driven reward/retraining program to keep your best drivers and motivate the others to become better.
  • Improve fuel economy by detecting quantified asset performance declines for earlier corrective action.
  • Shorten the time you run equipment when performance is suffering. Put that difference in your pocket!
  • Evaluate new technology after-market products with your equipment in your environment.
  • Provide risk assessments to reduce unscheduled downtime.
  • Schedule PM to avoid down time, on-road repairs, and fines for equipment out of compliance.
  • Also improves customer satisfaction by aiding on-time delivery and reducing urgent substitutions of equipment and possibly drivers.
  • Lower maintenance costs by more effective scheduling PM shop
  • When doing a PM, look at risk assessment of all components to reduce number of trips to the shop.
  • By having a several week schedule of likely PMs, resource the shop accordingly and verify adequate inventory of parts & supplies to reduce excess asset downtime and reduce unneeded labor expenses.
