Caterpillar's Vital Information Management System (VIMS) is a powerful tool for machine management that provides operators, service personnel and managers information on a wide range of vital machine functions. Numerous sensors are integrated into the vehicle design. If VIMS detects an impeding or abnormal condition in any of the machine's systems, it will alert the operator and instruct them to take appropriate action, whether it's modifying machine operation, notifying the shop of needed maintenance, or performing a safe shutdown of the machine. This improves availability, component life and production while reducing both repair cost and the risk of a catastrophic failure. On Caterpillar Mining Trucks and large Wheel Loaders, VIMS also includes production and performance information. It records the various elements of the truck cycle: load time, travel loaded, dump time, and travel empty, along with delay times. All of this information is used to create useful reports and charts. These reports lead to intelligent analysis and better decision making for a more efficient operation, lowering the cost per ton.

O Sistema de Gerenciamento de Informações Vitais (VIMS) da Caterpillar é uma ferramenta poderosa para o gerenciamento de máquinas que fornece aos operadores, pessoal de serviço e gerentes informações sobre uma ampla gama de funções vitais da máquina. Inúmeros sensores são integrados ao design do veículo. Se o VIMS detectar uma condição impeditiva ou anormal em qualquer um dos sistemas da máquina, alertará o operador e instruirá a tomar as ações apropriadas, seja modificando a operação da máquina, notificando a loja da manutenção necessária ou executando um desligamento seguro da máquina. Isso melhora a disponibilidade, a vida útil do componente e a produção, reduzindo o custo de reparo e o risco de uma falha catastrófica. Nos caminhões de mineração Caterpillar e grandes carregadeiras de rodas, o VIMS também inclui informações de produção e desempenho. Ele registra os vários elementos do ciclo do caminhão: carregar tempo, viajar carregado, despejar tempo e viajar vazio, juntamente com os tempos de atraso. Todas essas informações são usadas para criar relatórios e gráficos úteis. Esses relatórios levam a análises inteligentes e melhores tomadas de decisão para uma operação mais eficiente, reduzindo o custo por tonelada.

Caterpillar's Vital Information Management System (VIMS) is a powerful tool for machine management that provides operators, service personnel and managers information on a wide range of vital machine functions. Numerous sensors are integrated into the vehicle design. If VIMS detects an impeding or abnormal condition in any of the machine's systems, it will alert the operator and instruct them to take appropriate action, whether it's modifying machine operation, notifying the shop of needed maintenance, or performing a safe shutdown of the machine. This improves availability, component life and production while reducing both repair cost and the risk of a catastrophic failure. On Caterpillar Mining Trucks and large Wheel Loaders, VIMS also includes production and performance information. It records the various elements of the truck cycle: load time, travel loaded, dump time, and travel empty, along with delay times. All of this information is used to create useful reports and charts. These reports lead to intelligent analysis and better decision making for a more efficient operation, lowering the cost per ton.
