The Sente Group CEO Presents Comprehensive Approach to Asset Management at NCSL International 2012 Workshop & Symposium

Custom approach has helped industry-leading companies increase revenue and productivity

Atlanta, GA — Paul McNamara, CEO of The Sente Group, presents key components of successful and holistic test equipment asset management at the NCSL International’s 2012 Workshop & Symposium in Sacramento, Calif. The presentation emphasizes the importance of adjusting the focus of equipment management, helping to reduce costs in test, by utilizing a systemic approach called Test Resource Management™ or TRM.

Through TRM, The Sente Group has helped companies improve utilization by up to 400 percent and achieve millions of dollars in cost savings and improvements. “Engineers everywhere are under increasing pressure to get products to market as quickly and cost effectively as possible,” said McNamara. “Yet time spent tracking down test equipment hinders productivity, which ultimately leads to too many delays and dollars lost in many projects.”

The presentation explores opportunities for improving asset utilization and capacity management, focusing human capital with optimized test technologies to accelerate time-to-market. Furthermore, it emphasizes a departure from the traditional “property,” “asset,” or “equipment” management programs established across the industry today to produce groundbreaking results for the enterprise.

“Improving resource utilization can help reduce capital spending and associated costs by 50 to 75 percent, while freeing up engineering staff to work on strategic projects,” McNamara continued. “Companies that get it right bring in a lot more revenue with a lot less equipment.”

NCSL International was formed in 1961 to promote cooperative efforts for solving the common problems faced by measurement laboratories. Today, NCSL International has more than 1,000 member organizations from academic, scientific, industrial, commercial and government facilities around the world.
