Overview

Use of a total product life cycle management system addresses maintenance or repair and refurbishment needs, improving revenues and decreasing costs throughout an asset’s life cycle. It is a link to total asset visibility, quality assurance, and performance, helping operators to realize the benefits that integrated support delivers to system uptime.

Equipped with modern architecture and advanced capabilities, Cameron’s asset management system is designed specifically for equipment and performance monitoring. Through web-based deployment, automated workflow, and embedded reporting tools, the system enables asset management and tracking of spare parts, contracts, clients, locations, service tickets, and more.

RFID Automation Offers Cost-Effective, Reliable Recordkeeping

To keep oil flowing to meet customer demand in the global marketplace, equipment must run at peak efficiency, making inventory management a key objectiveManaging assets, spare parts, contracts, clients, locations, service tickets, and more is essential to project success. RFID technology streamlines these inventory business processes by:

  • Increasing the automation of product movement and supply
  • Ensuring optimal use of all assets
  • Reducing inventory carrying costs
  • Protecting against unplanned downtime
  • Ensuring cost-effective regulatory compliance

The use of RFID can automate the tracking of everything from safety equipment to tools, parts, valves, and wellheads, starting at the moment of arrival in your facility to the end of the asset’s life.

Cameron has implemented tagging as the core of our asset management initiative. Tracking customers’ assets using RFID:

  • Increases data integrity
  • Increases productivity
  • Provides accurate asset utilization information
  • Helps maintain equipment maintenance history
  • Improves equipment maintenance and infrastructure

Tracking begins at the receiving dock with handheld RFID readers; assets are immediately identified, entered into the system, and made visible in the inventory. A quick scan of an RFID tag provides valuable verification that the right asset was selected. Also, with RFID, data can be written to the tag. RFID data is dynamic, enabling a complete usage history to be embedded in the RFID tag on every piece of equipment. This read/write capability enables automation of recordkeeping for asset maintenance, resulting in highly accurate and complete records. The ultimate result is cost-effective and reliable item-level visibility of every asset, asset location, record of maintenance, and more.
