A selection of quality bespoke applications SAnDS have developed.
ACCAT (Adhesion Controllers Conditions Assessment Tool) is designed as an analytical tool to aid in the adhesion management decision-making process. Moisture, adhesion and leaf contamination data is collected and analysed on a real-time basis, and recommendations towards adhesion management strategies are provided. In addition to providing real-time information ACCAT provides predicted forecasts up to 6 hours ahead. ACCAT contributes towards the safe running of the railway.
The Asset Bible provides the ability to store the details and locations of various assets grouped by asset area. The asset information can then quickly be retrieved using an easy to use search mechanism. In addition to the general information about the Asset, the contact details of the contractors that are responsible for maintenance of that asset are also stored. If an asset fault is reported the correct contractor can be located and contacted.
Bomber Command is used to display incidents and resource allocation in certain sections of the London Underground. The application provides a powerful graphic display indicating immediately where a fault is located as recorded by the Asset Management System - Ellipse.
Team Brief Manager is a powerful tool which manages the flow of information throughout the business, cascading messages down the organisational hierarchy. At the heart of the application is a structured mechanism whereby feedback can be delivered back up through the organisation.
Plant and Crane Approvals is a web based application that allows for easy management and issuing of safety certificates for machinery used along the railway. The application was converted from an existing Microsoft Access database that could no longer provide for the new requirements of the business.
