7 Schedules
This option is of a great value and extends the functionality of CENT to a higher level in which it
works as an organizer. The main objective of this option is to help the customer do a better
maintenance of his equipments by reminding him to do the sampling tests on time. The interval
between each sampling can be days, weeks, months, or years depending on the equipment itself.
This will be of a great help to avoid forgetting a critical sampling test.
Once a schedule created the system will send email alerts to the specified contact one day in
advance to remind them about the due date of the sampling.
The user will select the required equipment and sampling point of that equipment or instead he
can directly select the required sampling point by referring directly to the CENT code if it is
known to him.
Once that is selected, all the user has to do is to define the interval periods and the starting date as
shown in the screen below (fig. 13). Once all fields defined click the button “Save schedule” to
generate the schedule in the system. The system will send email alerts to all contacts mentioned
one day prior to the due date of the next schedule. Maximum of 3 contacts can be defined in this
screen. The user has to make sure that the mentioned contacts has a valid email defined in their
contact profiles.
The user can also generate a report about all defined schedules in the system, if any, by clicking
on the hyperlink on the top (in blue color)

do a better maintenance and planning for the equipments. Currently five reports are available and
more reports will be added in the future. These reports are:
1. Monitoring review for a period
2. Condition monitoring report graphical

8..1 Monitoring Review for a period
This is a very comprehensive report which gives a complete history of all samples done within a
specific period categorized and sorted by equipments/sample points in one report. Based on this
report, the customer can make better decisions in increasing the sampling intervals or reducing
them for a specific sample point/equipment. To generate the report the user has to feed the
starting and ending dates for which the report is required as shown in the following screen.
