The Occupant Classification ocs system is a safety feature that prevents the front passenger airbag from inflating if the seat is not properly occupied. Normally, the indicator light with the text “PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF” illuminates and stays on to indicate that the seat’s occupant is not a proper weight for the airbag to inflate. This is important because the faulty activation of the airbag can cause serious injuries to passengers.
OC Systems offers software instrumentation tools that provide visibility into large, complex applications as they execute in production environments. These tools enable defects and performance problems to be debugged and resolved faster, reducing the risk of schedule slips.
The company also offers maintenance scheduling and tracking solutions. These include Eureka Maintenance Scheduling, a solution that uses data from an organization’s work order management system to optimize resource availability and skills, and reschedules work orders based on resource capacity and skill availability to minimize equipment downtime and maximize utilization of resources. The Contract Module enables the recording, control and reporting of contracts and projects and is designed to meet the requirements of organizations to manage their external and internal projects.
In addition to providing tools to monitor and track projects, OC Systems’s OCS applications suite includes several additional subsystems that statistically calculate and monitor bulk product quality on an individual stockpile, load and route basis. The Bulk Product Tracking system includes comprehensive forecasting and scheduling functions. Additional subsystems allow users to assemble, track and view shipping orders, as well as record invoice information for customers.
OCS also provides solutions to manage the transport and storage of liquids, such as fuel and lubrication. These are critical to maintaining the operational reliability of rail cars, which are exposed to a range of environmental and operating conditions. The system allows for the recording and reporting of vehicle fuel and lubrication inventory, consumption, and use, as well as the generation of reports and charts to help with fleet management and analysis.
Another of OC Systems’s key offerings is its OCS Heart system, which is FDA-approved to preserve donor hearts that cannot be preserved with standard cold storage techniques. It is the only technology that maintains a donor heart in a near-physiologic and functioning state outside of the body from the time it is retrieved, resuscitated, and clinically assessed until it is ready for transplantation into a suitable recipient.
The OCS Heart system consists of a heart perfusion module, which provides the sterile blood circuit and protected environment for the heart; and a heart pump. A small study by Hamed et al found that DCD donors with coronary perfusion problems (end-of-perfusate lactate 5 mmol/L) have good 30-day graft function after OCS heart support compared to SCS. This may help expand the donor pool by enabling clinicians to procure marginal donor hearts that would be rejected for heart transplantation in current practice if they had to be stored in cold storage for more than 20 minutes.
