Topic: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Hello,
A client that works with forklifts asked us if there was a  way to monitor these indicators in Fleetrun: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF.
I had never heard before about them, but as I researched, I thought it would be awesome if there was inside Fleetrun.
I`m leaving a link of what is these parameters and how they can be calculated:

https://limblecmms.com/blog/mttr-mtbf-m … e-metrics/

It would be necessary to be able to select the durtion of every maintenance/service made in the units, as it already exists in Wialon.
This client also uses the parameter of engine hours. There is a way of changing the distance for the hours inside the app?

The option to select if the service is preventive or corrective is also important for some companyes.

MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Dear Fernando Brochetto,

thanks a lot for sharing the information on the metrics like MTTR, MTBF and MTTF, I need to research more on them, whether they are actually used in fleet maintenance or they are to be more addressed in manufacturing and parts/inventory management.

Putting aside these metrics, let's turn to other requests:

1) Why would it be necessary for a client to have an ability to enter particular hours of service? Do they really enter them in Wialon? How do they operate with these data further on?

2) There is no way to change the distance for the hours, but we will add cost per 1 engine hour on the dashboard of the whole fleet and particular units in the next week update and it will become possible to view the value both per 1 engine hour and 1 unit of mileage.

3) In Fleetrun we do not speak such terms as 'preventive' or "corrective" maintenance. However, we distinguish between the services that are performed per some interval (which is preventive in your case) and unplanned (which is corrective in your case). Thus, in case in reports system displays the name of the interval this is preventive maintenance. In case there is no name of a service displayed this is corrective maintenance.

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Hello mars,
Yess, these metrics will help many companies big_smile

1) They want to know how much time the forklifts has been in maintenance per day/week/month, to get the whole time that the fleet or a unit wasn't in operation because there was a problem (these vehicles works in three shifts, so they need to be in operation almost 24 hours per day). This will work together with the metrics MTTR, MTBF and MTTF. This could make possible the client see the real intervals that the vehicles weren't in operation.

2) Great, this is even better hahaha.

3) Ok, we will use in this way.

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Dear Fernando Brochetto!

I have located your idea regarding MTTR, MTBF and MTTF metrics in our backlog of ideas for further developments. To tell the truth this is quite a specific requirement that we have received for the first time, so we need more time to process and analyze it and see whether it can be applicable for other partners and needs as well.

In the regards to the second point we have delivered an update last week where it has become possible to get an idea of the cost per 1 engine hour.

I hope I did not miss anything.

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Hello mars,
Thank you for your answer, everything is working with cost by hour big_smile.
About the indicators, they're a great tool to monitor the progress of fleet maintenance, hope you can find a way to implement them soon. smile
Do you know if it is possible to change at least the format of calculating the services duration?
Our client is requesting to be able to select the minutes of which the vehicles had been in maintenance.

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Could you please clarify the request: is it necessary to know the particular hours and minutes of the day when the service was performed or just to understand the duration of the service in minutes?

Just to understand the duration in minutes. The particular hours the client would be able to see by opening the services.

Dear, adel.mezrigui!

The objective of this topic is discussion of Fleetrun connected ideas. I believe that you might find answer in this section. You can also contact your regional manager for more assistance.

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Hello mars,
Do you have any news about this topic?
We have a client that is using the maintenances on the platform instead of the app because it can't calculate the real duration of the maintenances.
With the duration we are also calculating the metrics MTTR and MTBF, together with the values of number of services and engine hours of the day.
Thank you!

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Hi Fernando. Fernando Brochetto

We are planning to add the ability to specify the particular hours or period in hours that a vehicle spent in service. This will happen approximately at the beginning of the next year.

As soon as we add this functionality you will be able to export report and calculate MTTR and MTBF values in the corresponding file.

Re: MTTR, MTBF and MTTF indicators and some improvements

Hello mars,
As we were talking, I'd like to let our needs here for Fleetrun, so maybe could be of interest of others partners.
So what we'll need for calculating is the availability, it's percentage and the number of services in a separated column, plus the duration in minutes, that you've already told that it's coming.

Availability:
The time that the vehicle wasn't in maintenances. This value is the duration of the period of the report minus the total duration of all services.
You can use this metric to know the time that the unit was available for working.

Availability percentage:
The percentage of the time that the vehicle was able for working.

Number of services:
It already exists in reports of Wialon.  The total number of services per unit and total.

I'm sending attached the table we are using for this client today with Wialon, because we cannot use it in Fleetrun with the metrics it can provide for us.
