Here too, we were able to massively reduce stocks. Parts that lie around in the warehouse gathering dust are now a thing of the past. Furthermore, with our clever cloud platform "ClearOps", 20% less capital is tied up in warehouses around the world. And not only that – in addition to the improved service at lower cost, the dealers are now reporting 8% more sales in their spare-parts business.
Innovative companies even take that all a step further. Digitalization and remote monitoring make predictive maintenance possible, and that prevents machine downtimes even before the machines come to a standstill or the damage occurs. And that in turn enables an enormous increase in service quality!
How does predictive maintenance work? Large numbers of interconnected sensors continuously deliver status data from the machine or plant, with the objective of ensuring maximum machine availability and reliability. The status analyses, the remaining service life of spare parts, etc. are provided in real time and permanently give the service team information on what they will have to do next – before the need even arises. A fantastic basis for ensuring you keep the "right" inventory and for flawless forecasting and planning!
