RPS Tracker Training - Creating your Haul and Equipment Categories

RPS Tracker allows you to track the activities of your assets. Each asset that you create is assigned a Haulage or Equipment Category. The Category definition allows you to provide a name for the category, whether or not you want to track engine hours and also define a set of haul profiles for the equipment if it is a haulage asset.

For example, an ADT Truck will have 2 or 3 Haul Profiles that may be applied to delineate different haulage capacities as per the spec sheets for the machine. Typically these are Heaped load, Struck Load or Underload capacities.

A heaped load is the capacity of the truck when the material is heaped in the load bed.
A struck load is the capacity of the truck when the material is flat with the lip of the load bed.
An underload is the capacity of the truck when it is carrying material below the lip of the truck bed e.g. because it has to cross a buried pipeline or because it has a steep uphill or downhill haulage path that dictates a lighter than normal loading operation for efficiency or safety purposes.

The load definitions are available to the vehicle or machine operator, and they can change the haul profile as required during operations.

The volume of the load is multiplied by the number of loads to determine the volumes of material moved during the reporting periods.

You can define as many categories as required and within each category you can create as many haul profiles as needed for that type of asset.
