Technology A Solutions

ccording to an article from, contractor adoption of telematics is somewhere between seven and 17 percent, depending on the source. This number is most surprising given the fact that 80 percent of heavy equipment produced for the U.S. since 2009 has come equipped with this machine monitoring technology. Diving into your telematics data is a great way to distance yourself from the competition.

Using telematics data, you can reduce equipment costs, extend machine life, prevent unscheduled downtime and spot problems before failures. Most contractors use basic telematics information—such as machine operating hours, location, and fuel consumption—to produce measurable improvements in operating costs. Most new equipment has telematics built-in, so all that’s required is activation. Here are some of the specific cost-saving benefits you can get from your telematics data: ›Location › features help keep equipment and people safe by alerting operators and sounding proximity warnings.

›› Telematics can help optimize utilization by tracking parked or forgotten units, thereby preventing unnecessary rentals. ›› Most OEMs provide apps that enable you to access information via smartphone or tablet, so you can check on equipment condition, fuel burn, idle time or service hours. ›› Condition monitoring alerts help control maintenance and repair costs by reducing downtime. With telematics data you’ll be able to identify and rectify overused or underused equipment to optimize operations across your sites. You want to avoid having any machine run more than it should or run only 20 percent of the time. Your goal is to use all machines to their full capacity—and telematics provides the essential data. Caterpillar® has always been committed to innovations that provide customer solutions. With advancements in technology and connectivity we are delivering new levels of efficiency and productivity that help you make more money. Cat® Connect technologies and services include hardware and software designed to improve your operation—including Cat and non Cat assets—as well as help you leverage data generated by your assets to boost business results and strengthen your competitive advantage.

Information sharing and accuracy

As your team deals with changing requirements or unplanned worksite events, it can be challenging to keep different priorities from competing with one another. It takes a lot of information sharing and communication to keep an operation running on schedule and on budget. Technology can provide a big advantage in terms of speed of communication and accuracy of information provided.

The challenge is getting started and learning how to get everyone in sync. There simply isn’t a “one size fits all” approach. Each company’s journey is unique.

Stop chasing the paper trail—adopt Cloud computing

Running from site to office to trailer so you can update, print and distribute information eats up your critical resources. The Cloud platform simply means that users with an Internet connection can access “live” information from anywhere. Do you check your email on your smartphone? You’re already using the cloud. Here are eight quick ways the Cloud can save you time, money and headaches: ›› Rapid decision making when personnel can connect instantly from any location ›› Faster response time to RFIs (Requests for Information), change orders and purchase orders ›› Snap and send photos of worksite activity ›› Check manufacturers’ instructions ›› Confirm calculations ›› Instantly look up building codes ›› Quickly check contracts ›› Track weather Accessing information via the Cloud, your crew has instant access to important information from their phone or tablet. Using a phone or tablet, they can check codes and specifications for materials, approve material orders/ deliveries with no waiting, confirm crew payroll or time off, and manage maintenance schedules with no downtime. According to a recent Texas A&M survey, 72 percent of construction professionals use smartphones at work; 54 percent use laptops and half use tablets. Phones and tablets empower employees to access and share accurate

information with the tap of a finger. One contractor found that superintendents using a voice-to-text application (app) could save at least 30 minutes a day in preparing reports. There are a wide number of apps that can be useful for your team in the field; here are some of the most often used: ›› Permit apps (for sending and receiving permits) ›› Resource tracking apps (tag assets and monitor their location) ›› Inventory apps (monitoring items that are depleted and restocked) ›› Fleet tracking apps (monitor vehicle routes & fuel) ›› Inspection apps (speed walkarounds) ›› Safety apps (notification system to alert foremen of problems) The introduction of control technologies for grading, compacting and measuring payload has increased construction companies’ ability to get more work done regardless of operator skill levels. With machine control and guidance technologies, accuracy of work is to exact specifications, therefore, less rework is required and more work gets done each shift. Another benefit is reduced wear on machines. Productivity and cost saving advantages come primarily from increased accuracy of computer guided or monitored buckets and blades, and increased speed of automated “assist” features that make the operator faster and more accurate. Other advantages include reduced man hours because fewer workers are needed to check progress/complete jobs, and increased jobsite safety. With good planning, return on the machine control technology investment can be accelerated. Careful monitoring of machine control performance will maximize the impact on productivity to be integrated into future bids.

Fundamentals of Fuel ADD TO YOUR BOTTOM LINE


uel is a major cost driver for contractors and other construction equipment owners. Knowing how to accurately quantify fuel use is a key step in managing these costs. Fuel consumption measures the number of gallons you use every hour. Fuel efficiency measures the amount of work you do with every gallon. Fuel efficiency is defined as material moved (work) in a time period over the amount of fuel consumed to move the material in the same time period. To put this formula into plain terms, material moved, also known as productivity, is measured in tons or cubic yards. Fuel consumed is measured in gallons used to move the material. The unit of time for fuel efficiency is an hourly measurement that results in tons or cubic yards per gallon. Improvements in fuel efficiency are achieved by either increasing the productivity while retaining the same amount of fuel consumed, or reducing the fuel consumed while retaining the same productivity level.

Both are important—and each must be properly managed to optimize profitability. Count on Caterpillar® and your Cat® dealer for products, solutions and expertise that will help you control consumption, improve efficiency and realize more profit from every tank.

Take another look at fuel consumption

Equipment owners use the consumption rate (gallons per hour) as a metric for comparing machines. They assume that a model with a lower rate must be a more economical option. But the fuel consumption rate, though important, needs to be looked at in context with two other factors: idle time and working time.



6 ON THE JOB 2017

Idle Time

If a machine logs a lot of idle time during a shift, it uses fewer gallons of fuel per hour because it takes less fuel to idle than it does to work. But the owner does not benefit from this reduction in the fuel consumption rate. In fact, the extra idle time simply wastes fuel, drives costs up over the life of the machine and increases emissions. Fuel costs are just part of the story. When you rack up a lot of non-productive hours, you: ›› Increase emissions ›› Jeopardize component life ›› Accelerate wear of Tier 4 technologies ›› Perform unnecessary fluid and filter changes ›› Burn through warranty hours ›› Sacrifice resale value

Working Time

If a machine works virtually all shift long—and rarely idles— its hourly fuel consumption rate may look high. But the owner recovers value from the extra fuel used. Work gets done, revenue gets generated and the potential for profit grows. OTJ Contact our dealership for advice on cutting idle time, increasing working time and earning more profit from every tank.


Limit idle time at shutoff. Older engines need two minutes, newer engines almost none.


Turn off trucks that are waiting more than five minutes to load or unload.


Restrict morning warm-ups to three to five minutes.


Turn off equipment during lunchtime, breaks and other periods when not in use.


Use the automatic shutdown feature when available.


Anticipate the mobile requirements of other equipment and position the inactive machine where it won’t impede the movement of other units.
