DAGUARD is a software program that monitors the life of equipment parts based on cycles and time in use. The system is a preventative maintenance solution with predictive maintenance functions. It is programmed to notify users when it is time to maintenance or replace system parts. Software is a web-based system with four modules: Maintenance & Inspection, Part Life Expectancy, Diagnostics, and Maintenance Support. The software forecasts the deterioration of parts and components using a statistical method and experimental rules that have been established within the material handling industry over time. Users can view real-time information about operation cycles, hours in-use, and travel distances.
