First Transit's Predictive Maintenance Analytics improves fleet reliability, on-time performance and passenger satisfaction. This innovative tool gives technicians the opportunity to make repairs before a failure occurs while vehicle is in service. Utilizing Predictive Maintenance Analytics, First Transit can:
- Predict and prioritize vehicle component failures before they happen in real time by gathering and analyzing thousands of data points
- Move a repair from unscheduled maintenance to scheduled maintenance
- Make repairs before the failure becomes much more expensive
- Reduce vehicle breakdowns and road calls
Tracking and Documentation
Our preventive maintenance program drives vehicle safety; and, is tracked and documented by a comprehensive, computerized system. This ensures that scheduled maintenance is performed and that vehicles run safely and reliably. Our safety policies, procedures, notices and updates are documented in an online safety resource center, reaching employees immediately and allowing them to share tips and resources.
A computer-based system tracks inspections, repairs a
nd costs, for every vehicle, ensuring that fleets are always in compliance with contractual, federal, state and municipal regulations.
In-Depth Fleet Analysis
Technicians perform bus inspections at regular intervals to predict and prevent problems and to minimize impact on vehicle availability. Using failure analysis, we collect and analyze data; identify root causes of a problem; and, implement an action plan in order to reach the optimum level of preventive maintenance that can be performed. The result is our ability to complete 100% of the work, 100% of the time; and, ensure buses are reliable, safe and on time.
