Bring rfid to asset management

  1. 1. Bring RFID to Enterprise Asset Management E-ISG Asset Intelligence (www.e-isg.com) February, 2016
  2. 2. RFID – Key Benefits Use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for automated inventory control eliminates costly user-initiated line of sight inventory activities that other technologies require.
  3. 3. RFID Eliminates Line of Sight Scanning
  4. 4. How RFID Technology Add Value to Asset Management? 1 . Reduce counting/audit time by 6.5x – save Labor costs 2 . Automate the update of asset location – save time in locating assets
  5. 5. What RFID Technology Doesn’t Do  Manage the Lifecycle Infor mation of Individual Asset or the Relationships among Assets  Schedule and track asset Calibration/Maintenance  Suppor t wor kflows  Generate routine and customized repor ts for decision making and compliance repor ting
  6. 6. What Asset Management Software Does  Manage Financial, Physical, Contractual Infor mation of Physical Assets  Manage Asset Life Cycle events – recor d, change of custody, inventor y audit, maintenance, retirement  Automate Repor ting – Operation, financial, Compliance  Automate business processes through wor kflows
  7. 7. 7 1. Enterprise wide visibility to physical assets – improve operation  What  Where  Who 2. Streamlined data entry and reporting – save labor hours and reduce risks  Purchase orders feed into asset management systems  Data from asset management systems feed into Finance to prepare for depreciation and tax reporting Benefits from Asset Management System
  8. 8. 8  Reduce labor hours spent on locating assets  Reduce labor hours on auditing assets  Prevent loss of assets by setting up geo fencing for assets  Collect additional information from assets to assist decision making, e.g. temperature, meters Benefits of Bringing Physical RFID to Asset Management
  9. 9.  Active  Passive  Battery Assisted (BAP)  GPS/A-GPS RFID Tag Types
  10. 10. 10 Passive RFID Technology – How It works
  11. 11. • Specialized Handheld Readers – Mobile Computers – Bluetooth attached readers • Fixed Position Readers – Mounted near doors/areas – Fully automated operation Passive RFID Technology -- Options
  12. 12.  Don’t know where the materials, parts and equipment are  Expensive tool gets moved around in the plant, but nobody is alerted  Plant engineers spent overtime labor to inventory parts and equipment – cost overrun  Unable to track the components in an assembled workstation (parent/child relationship)  Unable to report to Customs the duration of the individual equipment in the plant since imported to Mexico Case Example -- Automobile Manufacturing Facility
  13. 13. Case Example – What We Did at the Facility  Tag all assets with Passive RFID tags at receiving  Install read points at doorways  Establish Zones throughout Floorplan  Logged events on:  Units movement outside of designated zones
  14. 14. Track Assets within Floor/Zones
  15. 15. Track Assets Moved Outside of Designated Zones
  16. 16. Case Example – Post Implementation 1. Eliminated daily cycle count 2. Eliminated overtime hours for inventory audit 3. Eliminated $2 Million in Customs fines for inaccurate records
