Construction Equipment Manufacturing Industry ModelsEquipment manufacturing does not exist in a vacuum, and neither does construction. The manufacturers that want to excel and grow are looking to tactics and technologies other industries are using to collaborate and grow their businesses.
- Automotive: “At AEM, we’re always looking to the automobile industry, which might be a decade advanced when it comes to creative uses for technology.” Things like convergence with mobile and advanced fleet tracking capabilities are automobile updates construction equipment manufacturers can learn from.
- Airline: Airlines are doing some really interesting things with parts sharing and collaboration. For example, if a plane goes down in Denver and United doesn’t have a part for the 737 Boeing, they share information with Southwest who might have the part they need.
- On-road Trucking: The on-road trucking industry is a great model for service. They’ve figured out how to keep trucks moving, both with advanced sensors and maintenance.
