Blog post: Lost in space no more: NASA using UHF RFID to track items on the ISS

Tuesday 2nd of August 2016

Conducting item-level audits and inventory checks in space, without gravity, is no easy feat. It’s a painstaking process of manually opening, counting, and closing flight bags, and ensuring items don’t inadvertently float away to unknown locations aboard the ISS. NASA estimates that lost crew time spent on such activities could cost in excess of US$1M annually. Read how a UHF RFID-based program – REALM – aims to eliminate crew effort spent on manual audits and searches so they can spend more time on research that holds benefits for all of humanity in “Lost in space no more: NASA using UHF RFID to track items on the ISS” »

Blog post: Tagging spare parts in complex asset operations [Part II]

Thursday 21st of July 2016

The successful selection, and operation, of your asset tags are key when it comes the implementation of an item-level serialisation platform for improving the management of spare parts. However, with so many factors playing a role in determining the right kind of tag – fit/form/function, environmental conditions, lifecycles, workflows, tag type, frequency, read ranges and more – it can be hard to know where to start. What’s more, getting it wrong can end up a costly exercise. Today’s article aims to shed light on these issues to help you navigate a vast array of options and select the right solution[s] for your application.

Blog post: Managing spare parts in complex asset operations [Part I]

Tuesday 5th of July 2016

Managers of complex asset operations already know that effective spare part management is essential to mission success. However, the ever-increasing challenge of global track and trace regulations, such as those in the defence, aerospace and pharmaceuticals industries, means that each piece – no matter how small – must be individually identifiable. Whilst barcodes or RFID can automate the collection of data about each individual part, its location and status, that’s only half the battle.

Blog post: Rigorous risk-based assessments boost asset management

Tuesday 10th of May 2016

In our last blog post we introduced the concept of a unified platform for risk-based asset intelligence with our new assetDNA-riskDNA ecosystem. This week, we’d like to pick up from where we left off with a closer examination of the risk assessment tools offered up by the system – specifically as they relate to the management of operational assets – and share an interesting anecdote about a real-world application.

Blog post: Should you rip-out, re-write or re-invent your legacy enterprise asset management system?

Thursday 17th of March 2016

Deloitte’s technology predictions are out for 2016. In the main it concentrates on the shiny new stuff, however, in a slight change of tact, one trend was dedicated to the coal-face challenge of extending the value of legacy systems. Today’s blog looks at how to transform legacy EAM’s, CMMS’s and deliver an RFID- and mobile-ready platform in less time, cost and risk.
