The Machine Has To Work!

Technical Article: The Machine Has To Work!

After-sales service provides service networks for vehicles and machinery – often on a world-wide scale. These generally pursue one goal: to reduce downtimes and thus the total cost of ownership (TCO). The core business includes fast, targeted maintenance and repair. This not only requires the use of an efficient repair shop tester, but also places special demands on its worldwide availability and updatability via a modern back end.

Softing envisions secure, reliable predictive maintenance

TOHE Article 08/2020 Softing envisions secure, reliable predictive maintenance

Modern heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks and buses but also forestry and agricultural machines or construction equipment, are packed with E/E components that support selfdiagnostic functions and increase the quality of maintenance, service, and repair processes. In service workshops, “right the first try” reduces expensive downtime and saves a lot of money. This objective is supported by a process that captures the already generated in-vehicle data and sends it to a cloud server for analysis and the creation of vehicle- and/or fleet-specific predictive maintenance sequences. The sequences support the service technician in the predictive maintenance process

Configuration Tool for Central Role and User Management from the Softing TDX Toolkit

Softing TDX.admin – Configuration Tool for Central Role and User Management

The large number of diagnostic tester installations (Softing TDX.workshop) all over the world makes the efficient management of role and user authorizations particularly important. In addition, ensuring consistent, automated and centrally controlled updates of software and its diagnostic content, such as repair instructions and diagnostic trees, is of particular importance for the use of the diagnostic tester in the repair shop area. We meet these challenges with Softing TDX.admin, a backend administrator tool from the Softing TDX toolkit.

NEW: Softing TDX Release 2.2 Enables the Dynamic Loading & Supplementing of Diagnostic Projects

Softing TDX Release 2.2 Enables the Dynamic Loading & Supplementing of Diagnostic Projects

A frequent challenge for diagnostics in the field, particularly in the machine environment, is that the ECU configuration of the machine is not known in advance and that a diagnostic project may have to be adapted or supplemented dynamically during runtime. With the new version 2.2. of the repair shop tool Softing TDX, it is possible to load and even supplement diagnostic projects dynamically, depending on the machine configuration.
