Abstract In this paper, we used data collected from the Gibraltar mine to analyze the effect of the TyreSense tire monitoring system on tire performance by reducing tire wear and preventing premature tire failure or damage. We analyzed the relationship between tire temperature, tire pressure, and tire failure or damage to help better understand the importance of controlling high tire temperature and pressure. The results enhance and expand the knowledge of the management of tire operational pressure and temperaturenature frequently result in specifications that can be made simpler, more economical, and better focused on the project’s goals. This paper surveys current specification writing practices and proposes an improved approach recognizing that product design, procurement, manufacturing, and quality are interrelated in a successful project. The lessons learned here can apply to all types of machinery specifications.

Résumé Dans cet article, nous utilisons des données provenant de la mine Gibraltar pour analyser l’effet du système de suivi de pneus TyreSense sur le rendement des pneus en réduisant l’usure des pneus et en prévenant la défaillance prématurée ou des dommages aux pneus. Nous analysons la relation entre la température du pneu, la pression du pneu et la défaillance ou les dommages au pneu pour mieux comprendre l’importance de contrôler les températures et les pressions élevées des pneus. Les résultats renforcent et accroissent notre compréhension d’une gestion optimale de la température et de la pression de fonctionnement des pneus.
