With the technical lifespan, it is predefined what the maximum lifespan of an asset is in which it can function technically before it has to be replaced. In the latest version, the end-of-life field has been introduced.
Legally speaking, some assets have a certain lifespan, such as safety helmets and fire extinguishers. From the economic aspect, it is also possible to look at how the lifespan is set. No maintenance is performed during its lifetime as it is replaced regardless of condition.
With the introduction of the end of life, it is possible to determine when an asset needs to be replaced. These settings have been moved to the object system settings since this version. For example, it is possible to enter per asset type the year of construction, the maximum lifespan and a warning period so that an expiry date is automatically displayedin Centix.
With the help of the preset warning period, the user is notified that the technical service life is soon to be reached. When an asset has reached its end of life, its status is changed to ‘End of life‘. This enables timely replacement of asset, PPE or tools. This way you prevent unnecessary maintenance and unsafe situations with the technical lifespan.
For example, a fire extinguisher. This has a so-called ‘impact date‘, also known as production date. Regardless of whether it is used, the fire extinguisher has an end of life x years after production, depending on the type and use. It is then no longer responsible and safe to use the fire extinguisher. After the fire extinguisher has reached its end of life, Centix shows the status ‘End of life’.
