IDnova - RFID Vs. MRO. SNAM RETE GAS case study

  1. 1. RFID Vs. MRO Maintenance, Repair and Operations SNAM RETE GAS, case study Radio Frequency Identification enabling Safety & Security of the industrial hazardous infrastructures IDnova –
  2. 2. Awareness, risk management Leverage your informations to improve safety & security Continuous improvement Efficient production Maintenance process Control IDnova –
  3. 3. Radio Frequency Identification Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. … IDnova –
  4. 4. RFID, permanent marking Worry about metals and liquids? Exceeded! Metals and liquids don't constitute a limit: the evolution of RFID technology has been made possible thanks to an improved understanding of the physics (signal propagation); Modern RFID tags, readers and antennas are innovative, rugged, reliable, intrinsically safe and designed to operate in harsh environments; An RFID tag is a permanent marking technology, which overcomes the limitations of traditional marking technologies, based on optical recognition (human or automatic – barcode).

  5. 5. RFID, application areas Logistics; Manufacturing – eg. WIP; Access control – people and Vehicles (AVI); Asset management; MRO; Waste management; Anti Counterfeiting and traceability; Payments; and many more... IDnova –
  6. 6. RFID Vs. MRO System components ERP; Custom software developed for supporting field operations; RFID infrastructure, stationary and mobile; RFID tag, maybe of different form factor and materials. IDnova –
  7. 7. RFID Vs. MRO Identify an object means also to detect its location. IDnova –
  8. 8. RFID Vs. MRO Item on field... What is it? Where is it? Is it working properly? IDnova –
  9. 9. RFID Vs. MRO RFID is the link between items on field (physical world) and the corporate management system; The item identity, expiration date audit-trail etc. can be stored directly on the object; IoT (Internet of Things)? Big data? IDnova –
  10. 10. RFID Vs. MRO Less time and labor to streamline operations; Improves safety compliance; Increase asset visibility; Positive impact on products lifecycle management; Evident value and ROI. IDnova –
