TECHNOLOGIES QR Codes QR Code (Quick Response Code) is a type of matrix barcode or often referred to as 2D barcode Invented by the Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave in 1994 to track vehicles during the manufacturing process. Data capacity is 7,089 Numeric characters and 4,296 characters Alphanumeric Readable from any direction in 360 degrees QR codes has error correction capability, data can be restored even if the symbol is partially dirty or damaged Can trigger events (Open URL, Dial a phone#, SMS text, etc)
TECHNOLOGIES BAR CODES Universal Product Code (UPC) is a barcode symbology that is widely used in North America Each barcode consists of a scannable strip of black bars and white spaces Conventional bar codes are capable of storing a maximum of approximately 20 digits A bar code contains data in only one direction
TECHNOLOGIES RFID Radio Frequency Identification Device Tags can be either passive (w/o battery) or active (with battery) Each tag typically holds 96 bits of data Low Frequency (LF)___10KHz to 135 KHz. Systems operated at LF have short reading range and are commonly used in asset tracking and security access High Frequency (HF)__ 6.78, 13.56, 27.125 and 40.68 MHz. HF systems are used for automated toll collection and railroad car tracking Ultra High Frequency (UHF)___850 MHz to 950 MHz. Microwave___ 2.4 GHz to 2.5 GHz Basic RFID tag read operation The reader initiates tag collection and sends messages to all tags All the tags in the reader‟s field of contact respond by transmitting their tag ID to the reader The reader forwards all collected tag IDs through a middleware platform that filters and aggregates data before passing it on to the host computer
QR Codes UPC Bar Codes 7,089 Numeric characters and 4,296 characters capable of storing a maximum of approximately 20 Alphanumeric digits Readable from any direction in 360 degrees A bar code contains data in only one direction Can trigger events (Open URL, Dial a phone#, SMS Cannot be used to trigger events text, etc) Inexpensive Have error correction capability, data can be restored even if the symbol is partially dirty or damaged RFID Require more technological hand-holding More expensive per tag „Closed‟ vs open system. Requires middleware to decipher, interpret and use the data, not to mention the readers required to read the tag Specialized RFID Tags can be read through snow, fog paint, dirt, grime and other challenging conditions Data stored on RFID tags can be changed, updated and locked Do not have to be within „line of sight‟ , can read multiple tags at one time

VISION 2.0 “The Cloud” Centralized Cloud-Based System
VISION 2.0 Benefits of Cloud Benefits of Cloud Computing Eliminates the need for in-plant software installations, and associated servers and storage $$No large investment in equipment or servers$$ Very easy to use & accessible Scalable & Configureable Point-of-use data can be access through a secure login
VISION 2.0 Data Center Data Center for the Cloud o Provides full redundancy and failover protection o Fully secured and monitored o Cameras located throughout the center o Key card access, 24 x 7 o High capacity power with backup generators o Dual concrete exterior walls o „Building within a building‟ with a membrane based ceiling for additional protection from water o Cooling with redundancy o Fire suppression
VISION 2.0 Powerful, self service user interface at the point-of-need Take advantage of real-time data Find out instantly (contacts, manuals, SOP, maintenance records, safety records, tool & consumable requirements) Turn information into everyday business value Improve Asset Visibility
Do you need to perform preventive maintenance or recall isolation?Where are my assets?Are they in compliance?What amount of preventative maintenance time is allocated to fixedassets?Would you like to know what critical tooling and parts are needed for yourassets?How much of your expense and capital budget is due to loss of assets?The answer to these questions leads you to consider how improved assetutilization, performance, optimization and management can benefit you
VISION 2.0 Asset Tracking Commonly Tracked Assets & Equipment o High Value and/or Single Source o Equipment needing to Calibrated or Maintained Regularly o Exposed to Extreme Conditions o Limited Usage Life o Used across Multiple Departments/Facilities o Tools & Tooling o Molds & Jigs o Capital Equipment
VISION 2.0Asset lifecycle tracking has become an increasingly important issuefor organizations with a large asset baseCan reduce or eliminate unnecessary purchases of equipment,high carrying costs, and excessive regulatory finesWithout this info, it is challenging to properly plan,procure/construct and deploy assets, and perform maintenanceactivities.Snaptivation provides a comprehensive, reliable, and efficient assetlifecycle tracking application.Know the exact number of existing assets, the current value,location, and maintenance history.Speed decision making, cut costs and avoid unplanned shutdownsand increase production while streamlining operations.
VISION 2.0 64% of business personnel search atleast once per day for company assets or inventory27% were forced to search more than 10 times a day
VISION 2.0 Business Asset Tracking 7% 22% Do Not Track Assets Pen & Paper Microsoft Excel or44% Access 27% Asset Tracking Software
VISION 2.0Pen & Paper: The most inexpensive way to track assets isthe old-fashioned combination of pen & paper. Extremelymanual, time-consuming process which:• Easily creates errors• May be illegible• Difficult to update• Hard to manage• Store in a space-hogging filing cabinet Bulky paper documents are frequently lost, destroyed, and often misfiled
VISION 2.0Database or Spreadsheet: Powerful tools, butare not specifically designed to manage thecomplexities of tracking and managing assets.Using general office software is time-consuming and manual, easily creating errors &omissions.With no system in place: If one key person is out onvacation, quits, or disaster occurs, who else can cover thatresponsibility and knowledge? All that data/knowledge isgone for a day or possibly forever. How does this affectproduction? Maintenance? Purchasing?The proverbial “What would happen if you were hit by abus?”
VISION 2.0Preventative & Predictive Asset ManagementOld definition of failure: The equipment is broken orstopped. A good example is the conveyor stopped becauseof a mechanical problem.New definition of failure: The equipment is no longerperforming the function required of its user. An example isthe conveyor was running at 40 feet per minute, now it isrunning at 20 feet per minute.
VISION 2.0Predictive asset management, condition monitoring, being able to takesignals off of equipment and understand what those signals mean in terms ofanticipating what future failure might look like and when it might occur, andthen take some action to prevent that from happening.Less than 20% of asset failures are age related.So for the 80% of failures that are not age related, how can you identify thefrequency of their Preventive Maintenance activities?Finding are 98% of companies do not have good failure history data.Do you have good data to determine this frequency?Increase the useful life of capital assets with improved business processes foran increased return on assets and enhanced operational efficiency.
VISION 2.0The end results:• Eliminate wasted time spent searching for lost or misplaced assets• Reduce unnecessary expenses to replace lost equipment• Deter shrinkage• Enable proactive- rather than reactive- maintenance that helps decrease unplanned downtime• Extend the useful life of assets by implementing a maintenance schedule• Create customized asset tags that withstand harsh environments• Easily add, move, edit, or dispose of assets• Attach warranty information, pictures, and manuals to asset records• Ensure data integrity with department-level securityThe solution: SNAPTIVATION w/ VISION 2.0
