Especially when considering air crafts, fuel system management could be the difference between smooth sailing and potential disaster.
If your aircraft company has not already invested in a fuel system management product, you should probably be considering it. There are several advantages to utilizing a fuel management system, including equipment health monitoring, health monitoring systems on wing support, predictive technologies, and data asset management.
There are several types of fuel management systems. Card based fuel management systems typically track fuel transactions based on a fueling credit card and the associated driver PIN. Reports can then be generated based fuel consumption by driver, and data can be directly downloaded. These types of systems place high levels of accountability on the part of the driver, and are not always as accurate as an onsite fuel management system. Onsite fuel management systems may employ fleet refueling services or bulk fuel tanks at the site. Fuel is tracked as it is pumped into vehicles, and on site storage levels can be managed.
