Production Data

In this article:

There are three methods to send production or facility data to SENSEI – good, better, or best! For timely data and to eliminate the burden of monthly manual processes, it’s worth the effort to use the best method to automate your data into SENSEI.

Advantages of Automating Production Data

  • Easy to use and no login required
  • Maintains consistent and timely uploads
  • Reduces recurring time commitments to manual processes
  • Reduces failed uploads of regular data

The disadvantages are minimal! Automating requires initial IT time for setup and testing between site and IT staff.

Your SENSEI representative will work with you to implement the optimal data method for you and provide you with the data format requirements.

Best Method

Automating data to SENSEI saves you time! This fully automated solution sends a scheduled file directly to SENSEI for optimum consistency.

To set up this method:

1: Email your SENSEI representative a point of contact – someone at your facility (e.g., systems administrator) with knowledge of your production reporting system

2: We will work with your facility contact to apply a custom import configuration based on your data

3: Your systems administrator will set up a local script to regularly send data via secure file transfer protocol (sFTP)

Better Method

You can use a semi-automated method to move a production file into a local folder to send to SENSEI.

To set up this method:

1: Talk to your SENSEI representative for an example file format

2: Configure your production data in the required 3-column or multi-column format (your SENSEI representative will provide these details)

3: Use the link we send you to set up a local script to regularly push us a production report via sFTP

4: Manually drag and drop your file into your local sFTP folder at least monthly

Good Method

To manually send site data, here are the steps to send a production file using SENSEI Resources.

1: Talk to your SENSEI representative for an example file format

2: Configure your production data in the required 3-column or multi-column format (your SENSEI representative will provide these details)

3: Upload a file at least monthly to SENSEI Resources

Tip

Keep your model up to date by working with your SENSEI representative to deliver ongoing production data.
