Blog post: Asset intelligence technology for secure item-level authentication

Tuesday, November 22, 2016 - 10:04

Today’s global marketplace offers us access to more products, through more channels, than ever before. This convenience, however, comes at a cost. It’s resulted in complex, fragmented supply chains, with less end-to-end visibility, making the origins of parts very difficult to trace – opening the door to counterfeits. Today’s blog explores some of the wide-ranging implications of counterfeiting and what organisations can do to protect their business.

Blog post: Improving armoury and weapons management with auto-ID

Wednesday, October 19, 2016 - 18:09

Armoury management is not just about keeping weapons appropriately stored in a secure RFID cabinet or reinforced room. It’s also about managing allot of information associated with highly-sensitive assets – each with their own story to tell – in the context of complex workflows and compliance requirements.

Blog post: Case study: Maritime inspection rounds and watch-keeping events

Thursday, September 22, 2016 - 16:53

In our last blog, we described how data captured during asset inspections gives organisations a real-time window into their operations. Following on from there, we’d like to share with you an overview of a recent project we’ve undertaken for the Royal Australian Navy which serves as a good demonstration of this.

Blog post: Transforming inspection programs with enterprise asset intelligence

Wednesday, September 7, 2016 - 16:50

Traditionally, asset inspection programs have been repetitive, time-consuming and costly manual processes. Asset data may be isolated in disconnected information siloes or locked away in paper-based records that are incomplete, erroneous and out-of-date. This leaves organisations at a significant disadvantage – unable to make smart decisions about individual assets, and unable see the big picture across the entire enterprise-wide asset base.  Click here to read “Transforming inspection programs with enterprise asset intelligence” »

Blog post: Improve risk data quality and your competitive edge

Thursday, August 11, 2016 - 12:37

Increased complexity. Heightened expectations. Fewer resources. Less time to respond. Now more than ever organisations need trusted enterprise-wide insights to make well-informed risk-based decisions. However, with mounting evidence to suggest that traditional risk assessment tools are no longer fit for purpose – we need to improve our approach.

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

Tuesday, August 2, 2016 - 14:58

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, July 21, 2016 - 12:00

Key to the successful implementation of an item-level serialisation platform for improving the management of spare parts is the selection, and operation, of your asset tags. 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 blog 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.  Read “Part II – Tagging spare parts in complex asset operations” »

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

Tuesday, July 5, 2016 - 16:16

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.
