HOW DOES CONDITION MONITORING WORK?

WHY CONDITION MONITORING?

What if you could keep every asset operating at the highest level, every minute of every day, without adding headcount? That’s what fleet monitoring helps make possible. Fabick Cat Condition Monitoring Center do the heavy lifting — keeping on top of asset performance and health — so you can focus on running your business. When we see anomalies or areas for improvement, we let you know proactively. The result? You make informed decisions based on real-world data, driving bottom-line benefits:

Control Costs

  • Schedule repairs before failure, limiting expensive downtime
  • Perform maintenance when it’s needed, not too soon or too late
  • Extend component life by tracking condition, not hours
  • Identify areas where you can reduce idle time and fuel burn

Improve Performance

  • Allocate assets more efficiently
  • Make changes to your site that boost production and efficiency
  • Determine the ideal time to upgrade or replace older equipment

Reduce Risks

  • Avoid safety incidents resulting from equipment or component failure
  • Identify unsafe situations or risky behavior before accidents occur
  • Monitor fatigue and distraction in the cab (requires the Driver Safety System)

Manage People

  • Spot opportunities to train operators to work more accurately or safely
  • Free up your internal resources for other jobs
  • Catch and fix human errors before they lead to major issues

FUEL CONSUMPTION, FLUID INSPECTION AND ANALYSIS

If you’re only looking at one type of data — just telematics data or just inspection data, for example — you’re not getting a full picture of equipment performance and health. It’s like trying to complete a puzzle without all the pieces. At the Fabick Cat Condition Monitoring Center, we have access to ALL the puzzle pieces, plus the expertise to assemble them quickly and accurately. Our team brings together:

  • Telematics information, including asset utilization, fuel consumption, work vs. idle time and more
  • Inspection results, including Cat® Inspect data
  • Fluid analysis results for oil, coolant and fuel
  • Maintenance and repair histories
  • Site assessments, including Site Operations and Maintenance Advisor (SOMA) studies
  • Safety events, including fatigue and distraction incidents

When we spot a potential issue, we don’t just alert you to the problem. We tell you why it’s happening, what you can do to fix it and when you need to take action. That’s the real value of the Condition Monitoring Center.
