Caterpillar is a 90-year-old company that manufactures heavy-duty iron equipment that ranges from engines to diggers to bulldozers. With a slogan of “Built for It,” Caterpillar prides itself on delivering high-quality products so its clients can see return on investment. However, in a digital age, return on investment is no longer limited to equipment functionality, especially for marine vessels. It's about using sensor data from those assets to improve vessel performance and maintenance strategies. With the help of the OSIsoft PI System, Caterpillar created Cat Connect to apply analytics to raw vessel data and turn it into actionable information.
