Asset safety solution

  1. 1. What is RFID? RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology that allows automatic identification of objects, animals or people. RFID is not just a better bar code Capabilities More data, greater accuracy, automated delivery Line of sight not required Reads 1000’s of items simultaneously Benefits Improved accuracy, visibility, operational efficiency and security Opportunities to quantify processes and map improvements Opportunities for exception based management
  2. 2. RFID Components Tag : It is a transponder that is made up of an integrated antenna and an electronic circuit. The information can be written and rewritten on a tag. The ID written on the tag is known as the EPC (Electronic Product Code). Reader : An RFID reader is a device that is used to interrogate an RFID tag. The reader has an antenna that emits radio waves; the tag responds by sending back its data Host Computer : It reads/writes data from/to the tags through the reader. It stores and evaluates obtained data and links the transceiver to applications. Tag RFID Reader Host Computer

  4. 4. Asset Management and Tracking
  5. 5. Case Study A typical IT infrastructure of an organization consists of :laptops, desktops, servers, racks, printers, networking gear and laboratory test equipments which are distributed across various locations. Enterprises lack visibility in their asset lifecycle ◦ Because the current asset information is maintained in disparate systems such as financial application (ERP), barcode based inventory management software and maintenance/calibration software. Hence there is no co-relation between the financial systems and the actual inventory management system. Barcode based cycle count is time consuming, error prone resulting in inaccurate inventory, impacts productivity and leads to under-utilized assets. Finding assets to perform maintenance/calibration is time consuming resulting in new purchase requests and leads to an inefficient service and maintenance/calibration process. Outdated asset service information lead to limited traceability and non-compliance with various service level agreements (SLA) and warranties.

  7. 7. Common Issues Lack of Visibility into Total Asset lifecycle Inaccurate IT Asset Inventory Inability to locate an Asset Asset Security and non-compliance Laptop Tracking
  8. 8. Solution Asset Tracking ATS - RFID Solutions give you a new level of control over your assets, providing you with detailed visibility into asset movements and asset utilization across facilities and trading partners Real-Time Visibility into Asset Movement and Utilization Asset Tracking solutions leverage RFID technology, enabling you to tag, track and instantly locate assets, contents and component parts across your all locations. Find Out Instantly: Where assets are located What they specifically contain Time spent at each location Date due for maintenance etc.
  9. 9. Solution Components RFID tags specifically designed for IT Assets are attached to the assets which including laptops, servers, switches. These tags are specially designed to work on IT assets . ◦ Different tags are selected for different assets ◦ Tags also come with an option to have sensors ◦ Vibration, Temperature etc. RFID Portals are installed in each main Entry/exit of Building, floor, etc.. These readers are mounted and tuned in such a way that it reads all the Assets placed in any orientation 100% of the time. Also, a RFID handheld is provided to take an inventory and search for a particular asset. RFID Middleware Requires little to no integration to achieve powerful results Increase Visibility and Manage the Execution of Critical Workflows Automated Workflow and Business Process Management Advanced Business Analytics and Reporting

  20. 20. Solution Implemented RFID solution provides critical Asset and work center tracking without any impact to existing processes or operations. RFID tags specifically designed for Assets are attached to the assets which including items like laptops, servers, switches. These tags are specially designed to work on Metallic / IT assets . ◦ Different tags are selected for different assets RFID readers are installed in each gate of Activity center, labs etc.. These readers are mounted and tuned in such a way that it reads all the Assets placed in any orientation 100% of the time. Also, a RFID handheld is provided to take an inventory and search for a particular asset.
  21. 21. Asset Authentication Solution Features Of AAS are: ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ Automated Item Check – In and Check – Out Tagged Item Authentication Photo pop up (optional) Online data update Benefits of AAS are ◦ Reduction in lines at the main gate ◦ Secure, efficient and accurate in identification of tagged items. ◦ Tags can carry the important data apart from the identification. ◦ Real time information is available ◦ Reduced manpower
  22. 22. Solution Implemented RFID’s Asset Tracking Software is deployed on a networked PC that monitors the inventory count in real time across all read points. ◦ Asset violation report: ◦ Report provides a list of all the asset violations and exceptions that occurred in a given time period. Example – a given asset is checked out without its accessories. ◦ Asset overdue report: ◦ Report provides list of all the assets that are overdue in a given a location along with the check out details. ◦ Asset movement report: ◦ Report provides users with a complete history of an asset’s movement and the time stayed at each location. ◦ Check-in report: ◦ Daily report which provides a list of assets that are expected to be checked in. ◦ Decommissioned asset report: ◦ Report that provides a list of all assets that were de-commissioned from operations in a given time period, by location. ◦ Asset addition report: ◦ Reports all the asset that were added to the current inventory by location in a given time period. ◦ Asset inventory report ◦ Report provides a complete inventory of all assets, by asset types, at a chosen location for a given time period.
  23. 23. Benefits Achieved by Using RFID •An RFID-enabled location system makes it much easier and more efficient to locate tagged assets, providing visibility for repurposing equipment. • An unused server sitting in one data center, for instance, can be quickly deployed to another site that needs it right away, in order to get a project going. Knowing immediately which server is available, and its exact location, saves Companies the cost of having to purchase a new system. • It also provides up-to-the-minute data regarding when a device is decommissioned and leaves an organization. •Inventory time reduced from months to less than a week •Increased accuracy, security and visibility •Reduced man power •Inventory accuracy of 99.2%, leading to loss rate of less than 1 %
