ASSET MANAGEMENT

The solution enables the automated management of business assets via RFID technology, providing data in real time, constantly verifying the precise location of each asset.

SOLUTION COMPONENTS

The transponder (Tag)
The RF-ID tag is the physical support that identifies the asset to which it is applied and whose data it holds. Each tag possesses its own univocal identification code imprinted by the manufacturer, and a memory used to store the data of the asset of reference. The operator can update the data at any time.


The hand held reader
The hand held device has a RFID antenna, which is the instrument that dialogues with the tag. Using the hand held device, it is possible to write data on the tag or read its content. Through the dedicated software application, it manages the data between the tag and the server.

Server application
This is the inventory management application installed on a dedicated server and it dialogues with the client companys own platform (CMS). The data of each asset is first captured and handled by the CMS. It is then reordered and updated via the application and finally memorised in the assets and then sent back to the CMS.

THE SYSTEM

The system, as a whole, is composed of various physical modules and applications integrated with each other to carry out inventory of all of the goods through the adoption of Tags in radiofrequency and the wireless communication between the hand held device and the application.

 

The Tag transmits its data in radiofrequency to the hand held device which in turn, via wireless communication, transmits the data of the assets detected to the server application in real time.

THE ADVANTAGES OF WIRELESS COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY

Using the portable terminal equipped with wireless technology keeps the database constantly aligned with the situation in the warehouse, giving an immediate snapshot of the status and location of goods.
Thanks to the systems ability to update data in real time, inventory searches can be carried out without having to put the warehouse on standby. Eliminating the intermediate passage of data through the client installed on the portable terminal eliminates any risk of redundant data, favouring univocal, punctual and efficient information, which is received in the shortest time possible.


WORK AND DATA COLLECTION PROCEDURE

  1. Database setting and location definition
    Starting from the floorplan of the site, the codification inside the database is done for each business area and cost centres, suppliers and system users are set.
  2. Progressive numeration of assets via RFID Tag
    Goods are labelled with tags at the moment of inventory detection or input load as a new asset.
  3. Detection of goods via hand held device
    Detection can be carried out at any time and need not be linked to inventory activities, so that your status is always up-to-date.
  4. Database updating via wireless communication
    Wireless communication between the hand held device and the application keeps the database constantly updated in real time.
  5. Database consolidation and inventory of goods
    Based on the analysis of goods carried out, it is possible to consolidate them and print the inventory.
