Asset Identification Technology with RFID

How can you use asset detection models to ensure maximum workplace safety?

What is Asset Identification?

Asset identification involves management of a variety of movable or fixed asset categories, making it essential to integrate a comprehensive tracking system. Workplace safety softwares and solutions capitalize heavily on asset identification and tracking systems; this is because asset identification constitutes a critical step for a business to track its essential equipment. To put simply, if your business assets are incorrectly labeled, or if they undergo duplicate labeling, this creates multiple risk avenues. These risks include compliance complications, minimizing prospects for preventive maintenance, as well as compromising your assets’ safety in general. This makes it imperative for your business to ensure asset identification best practices both for physical assets as well as human assets.

What are Different Asset Detection Models?

General Outlook Asset Detection

Workplace safety softwares and solutions like Wipelot go above and beyond location based tracking system and utilize asset detection and identification for essential processes. These processes rely on collecting real time data from all mobile entities by wireless receivers. Then, this data is transmitted to and evaluated by the general system to inform the outcome to the responsible personnel.

High resolution real time location tracking refers to a combined system integration pertaining to collecting location data of individuals and equipment instantly and compiling a comprehensive reporting infrastructure. This system allows for the wireless receiver technology and the GPS installation to be completed and integrated in a fast and effective manner with minimum equipment.

Location Based Status Notification

Missing entity determination systems have been developed to function under districts where various entities are present. These systems allow for automatic counting and tracking within warehouse facilities, also extending its functioning to equipments or personnel that report from the given region.

Passage Point Perception for Personnel

This system refers to perception based transactions along defined districts or passage gates. Within this infrastructure data is compiled regarding whether the entities or assets are within the borders of a given region. It can also report on whether there is an entry or exit to the region by an asset. This data is then converted into notifications that can trigger alternative systems. RFID, also known as Radio Frequency Identification System, is actively used in such perception methodology. Please refer to our previous blog on RFID systems here.

Remote Perception and Inspection

In addition to positional data of an entity, it is necessary to compile the following information to ensure maximum workplace safety and accurate tracking:

  • Communication of the asset with the present mechanics of the external environment,
  • The operational status from the environmental interface
  • Breakdown record derivations

This process is usually conducted through inserted receivers that calculate temperature, humidity, pressure, vibration, gas, movement, seismic values, images, illumination, mechanical tension, noise, speed, directional data in real time through wireless collection and measurement. Evaluating this data also involves equipment and vehicle care status, oil level and other critical indicators.

Thus, such data concerning responsible personnel should be collected on a real time basis and immediately be transferred to the operating systems for further evaluation and response. This type of informational integrity can help ensure better operational planning, optimization and safety.

Why Should you Work With an Asset Tracking Solution?

Comprehensive and effective asset detection methods can allow your company to operate under full visibility and transparency of asset conditions. The best way to ensure you are following asset identification best practices is to work with an asset tracking solution. Knowing and constantly calculating where your assets are located, their condition, usage and movement is very significant information you should have access to for fully optimized business operations. Asset tags and asset tracking solutions can assist in proper maintenance, efficient operation, comprehensive reporting, and enhanced workplace safety.
