Computerised Maintenance Management System

Principles of Operation of Sentia

  • Sentia is a complete management information solution using the workorder as the hub of the system.  It consists of five fully integrated modules: Workorders, Routines/Outages, Purchasing, Inventory and Administration.

  • Sentia, our Computerised Asset Management Solution is a fully integrated software product functionally designed by maintenance engineers and purchasing staff who have an in-depth understanding of asset management issues.

  • Sentia has been in everyday use for over four years and has a proven track record in the provision of asset management solutions, from maintenance to inventory and purchasing.

  • Sentia:

    • Was developed using experienced maintenance staff with "hands on" experience of asset management issues.

    • Is an essential building block in ensuring high plant availability.

    • Facilitates a clear focus on good maintenance practice. The emphasis is on ensuring users move from reactive to proactive maintenance.

    • Promotes conformity with Health and Safety Standards and Pressure Systems Directives.

    • Achieves success by ensuring that maintenance becomes an integrated and essential part of the production process.

    • Assists the user to gain the best added value from the infomation collected ensuring optimum results.

Workorder Module

  • The workorder module of Sentia® is the heart of the system.

  • Workorders can be raised easily saving time and effort

  • Equipment hierarchy allows ease of use and can be tailored to the specific needs of individual clients.

  • Sentia provides cost effective management and seeks to ensure reductions in Maintenance Department budgets of up to 15%

  • Risk assessments are fully internal to the system, making Sentia the driving force for safe systems of work and enhancing overall safety for personnel and plant.

  • Sentia lengthens the 'planning horizon' allowing the ratio of percentage of planned to unplanned work to increase, resulting in better utilisation of staff.

  • Statutory routines are generated automatically giving prolonged asset life through proactive maintenance.

Routines and outages Module

  • All routines and outages are template based and can be generated over and over again, saving the maintenance engineer valuable time by having to add data only once.

  • All elements of a routine or outage template can be planned exactly as a workorder and saved until required. This includes all materials, services, stock and labour. Again, this yields significant savings in engineering time.

  • The routines section features the ability to generate routines automatically based on either time or usage. This provides the flexibility required by clients.

  • The outages section allows the user to generate single or multiple workorders related to an outage task quickly and easily from templates to any similar equipment number

  • Effective asset management enhanced through the use of routine generation of workorders helps the maintenance engineer to move to a more proactive regime and facilitates compliance with statutory regulations.

Inventory Module

  • Sentia provides an inventory database with full integration to the workorder module for spare parts and associated costs.

  • Inventory is controlled through a series of user defined rules that generate purchase orders, automatically saving effort and time.

  • The inventory hierarchy is based on "a parent-child" relationship meaning faster more logical searching.

  • Sentia provides control of all stock transactions ensuring that accurate, up to date, on-hand quantities are visible and all purchase receipts are made within this module to further save administration costs.

  • Allows health and safety data to be stored electronically with the stock item to ensure compliance with health and safety regulations.

  • Reduces spare part inventories saving typically up to 30%.

Purchasing Module

  • Incorporates strict controls to ensure full compliance with internal and external audits.

  • Allows requisitions to be raised and purchase orders processed for both goods and services and imposes financial limits based on log in.

  • Utilises a Service Manager section to accurately control variable service contracts that are delivered both on and off site through the use of variation orders.

  • Includes supplier rating procedure to assist with contractor performance indicators.

  • Provides a goods return section ensuring that no equipment or stock item is returned or shipped without the benefit of tracking.

Administration Module

The administration module contains:

  • Individual user log-in rights can be assigned by the system administrator quickly and effectively. This generates significant time savings.

  • A budgeting section permits budgets to be planned at equipment level but held at account level. Thus providing engineers and financial managers with the information they need.

  • Budgets can be phased throughout the year resulting in full financial visibility for the asset manager. This allows a dynamic view of remaining equipment budget on each asset.

  • An automatic instant messaging service for all users logged on to provide information about purchase receipts and any other area.

  • Access to a full audit trail for all system transactions, logging data change information.

  • Self-customisable variables for all users releasing system administrator's time.
