Liebherr launches SmartApp to optimise cargo handling
Liebherr Maritime Cranes is extending its product range of IT tools and services with the LiDAT smartApp telematic system to optimise the cargo handling performance of cranes and related processes.
Big data analytics examines large amounts of data to uncover hidden trends, anomalies and other insights, turning statistics is about turning these numbers into useful information on which action can taken.
With the LiDAT smartApp, it’s possible to analyse crane (operating and performance) data and get answers from it almost immediately, giving ports a competitive edge they didn’t have before. Big data analytics helps to detect bottle necks and to identify new opportunities, leading to smarter more efficient operations, higher profits and happier customers.
LiDAT combines crane technology and data transfer logic. The online work cycle detection on the crane records specific values during the crane operation are transmitted in real time to the LiDAT server centre, where the analysis is taking place.
With LiDAT smartApp all relevant data/variables are displayed as key performance indicators (KPIs) on any device (PC, tablet, smartphone), and the result of the analysis can be fed back to the crane/driver via LiDAT®. The results are shown on the operators display.
LiDAT smartApp gets all relevant people throughout your port/terminal connected directly to the relevant data. At the end of the day this leads to immediate decisions and gives customers the ability to get added value out of their data.
