|Abstract: ||Asset management has long been considered as an important issue in
enterprise organizations. However, automated asset management has still been
inadequately supported by existing information systems. It is very common in
these systems that information about location, status, and usage is often inaccurate
or incomplete and inaccurate or incomplete may cause delays in operations,
inefficient use of inventory of costly assets, and may even lead to asset damage or
lost. With the maturity of the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology,
automated management of assets (particularly for mobile ones) in an enterprise
using RFID becomes practical. According to our study and analysis, the RFID
application in asset management field has a huge and potential market. RFID
technology can realize the real intelligence of asset management, improve the
efficiency of asset valuation, strengthen the real-time dynamic management of
devices, and increase the benefits of asset management in many ways.
In this thesis, we develop a RFID-based Asset Management System
(RAMS), enabled by a Web-based Geographical Information System (WebGIS)
and Short Message System (SMS) technologies. RFID is used to automate the
entire life-cycle process for management of assets, including their acquisition,
transfer, auditing, maintenance, and retirement. WebGIS is used to facilitate
dynamic and visual representation of the spatial information of the asset
distribution on an electronic map. SMS is used for automated transferring of asset
movement information in a distributed environment. Especially, we develop a
Maximum Position First speed-up algorithm (MPF) for SMS scheduling to ensure
timely sending of the alarm SMSs that have high priorities.
We also evaluated the efficiency and feasibility of the RAMS system. Our
preliminary result shows that our system can improve the availability of assets and
reduce the asset management cost dramatically, with good user experience.|
