Trucks, trailers and the systems that support them continue to evolve and involve new technology to enhance or monitor the equipment mechanics. More and more knowledge is required to service and maintain the equipment and more and more memorization or storage of data is required for wiring diagrams, component settings, setup notes and so on. Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) systems like EMDECS can be relied on to hold this information.
Each unit entered into EMDECS for maintenance has it’s own equipment record. Use this record for notes or tid-dits of information about the unit or specific components attached to the unit – sensor placement / wiring – satellite tracking setup info – specialized equipment history, etc. Or, add notes to specific repair order labor activities that can be searched in the unit’s repair history screens.
Taking the small amount of time required to keep records and notes updated can really pay off down the road, when information is really needed. EMDECS can be a central information system for the heavy-duty equipment you manage, as well as a repair and maintenance tracker.
