Proactive and Preventive Management
Total Tyre Control™ presents a comprehensive set of functionalities and reports to promote proactive management practices and facilitate the prevention of tyre and rim damage.
Modelling features allow Total Tyre Control™ users to forecast new tyre demand. Through simulations based on historical and definable forward planning parameters (i.e. ‘what if’ scenarios), the tyre forecasting tool is essential in establishing the risk of tyre shortages that lead to unnecessary decrease in production.
Total Tyre Control™ software analyses and reports on tyre and rim failure trends, identifies reasons for failure and provides the user with tyre and rim maintenance alerts. Such alerts maintain proactive management practices by warning the user of tyre and rim maintenance requirements.
