Real-time Equipment Monitoring


The Need: Providing full visibility for critical equipment as it is being checked out and in for operations such as maintenance/repair, calibration, design reviews and pilot projects.

A major high-tech manufacturer requires a real-time asset monitoring solution for its hundreds of pieces of test and prototype equipment. The equipment is in several labs in buildings throughout their campus. 

Each piece of equipment is critical to overall operations and may be used by multiple individuals from several departments. Much of the equipment requires periodic calibration and certification for effective use and all of it must be tightly controlled and reserved for use by authorized staff.

The company is seeking full visibility for this equipment as it is being checked out and checked in for operations such as maintenance/repair, calibration, design reviews and pilot projects. Data on the history of movement for equipment documents a chain of custody, important in testing and prototyping. In addition, better visibility will result in optimal operational efficiency.

Roambee offered a way to address these visibility challenges using long-lasting and reliable devices that transmit data from each piece of equipment to the cloud via Bluetooth and other technologies.

The company will be able to access the data through a cloud service that provides real-time visibility of all equipment. In addition, Roambee will provide alerts about equipment that is missing from the system's “visibility,” malfunctioning, or due for scheduled maintenance. All this information is available through an easy-to-use dashboard interface that works with tablets, smartphones, and computers.

Roambee's asset monitoring solution will enable the manufacturer to easily and cost-effectively maintain location awareness of equipment, reduce ordering of unnecessary replacement equipment (due to lack of visibility), automate inventory audits, generate reports of missing equipment, obtain history of equipment movement, increase security, and increase quality and efficiency of operations. The manufacturer will be able to use the Roambee asset-monitoring solution without upfront capital investment though an affordable per-asset fee model.
