A new telematics data standard ensures that organizations will be able to consistently track equipment, as well as report and analyze data in their ERP system of choice. The data will be gathered from GPS or cellular boxes attached to individual pieces of equipment and compiled within a data warehouse or virtually any ERP system. The Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) have come together to develop the industry standard to ensure a unified approach across all equipment manufacturers and organizations with mixed fleets of equipment.
The telematics data standard will have 42 fault codes and 19 data points, including machine odometer, fuel consumption, fuel level, location, load counts, and engine running status. This level of data will allow equipment to be tracked in a real-time environment.
Before this standard was released, organizations with equipment from different manufacturers had to go to multiples websites to download data and without a consistent standard, reporting on the equipment was time-consuming. The data can now be imported directly into an ERP system and analyzed to reduce waste from machine operations and ultimately improve productivity and profitability.
Organization looking to import telematics data into an ERP system need to ensure that software providers and potential ERP systems are capable of handing and reporting on the new telematics standard.
