To address the challenges identified with machinery performance, we implemented state-of-the-art tracking software with our road planing machines.
This solution, for the first time, makes it possible to accurately and reliably document actual milling work completed.
To achieve this, the team collaborated with the manufacturer Wirtgen to implement the PERFORMANCE TRACKER software system, which uses a laser scanner to measure the cross-sectional profile to be milled and precisely measures surface milling performance and volume in real time using GPS positioning and other sensors.
This enabled the team to analyse in detail the actual milling performance and consumption data as well as durability of the machines during operation.
The investment in analytics software proved to be cost-effective, providing the ability to maximise the machines, gain relevant information during operation, and accurately schedule service plans and maintenance to avoid downtimes during time-constrained projects.
