Asset inventory reform
From 1G to 5G, the mobile communication system has completed several technological updates, and each update has brought tremendous changes to our lives. Many emerging industries have emerged, and the Internet of Things has slowly emerged. The continuous acceleration of mobile communication technology has not only shortened the connection between people, but also made breakthroughs in the communication between people and things, and between things and things.
In daily life, fixed assets occupies a very important position among all the assets of an enterprise. However, the large amount of inventory data, the long work cycle, and the cumbersome work of inventory personnel make the close connection between "people" and "things" difficult. Under the influence and application of technology, the method of asset inventory has also ushered in rapid changes. Today we will outline the history of the development of corporate asset inventory and see which era your asset inventory is still in?
The first generation handwritten entry 01
In order to prevent the loss of assets and strengthen internal control management, the company’s asset management has been independent, and a special asset manager has been set up to manage assets. The manager writes down the asset name, specification, model, purchase date, quantity, storage department... ... to provide a basis for enterprises to inquire about the status of their managed assets, and to a certain extent alleviate the supervision problems of unclear equipment and resource loss of enterprises' assets.
A brick and a tile are all unit assets, with various types, and it takes time and effort to complete the inventory work. Handwriting is not only prone to manual errors such as wrong disk, missing disk, and double disk, but also paper documents are difficult to save and back up for a long time. Faced with various disadvantages in practical applications, companies continue to explore better solutions.
Second generation computer entry
With the development of science and technology, the emergence of computers in the 20th century gave companies new hope in their heavy asset management work and began to move toward informatization. The inventory method is converted from the original manual writing to the use of computer typing to enter asset information.
Compared with the first-generation inventory method, computer entry has incomparable advantages in some aspects, such as: neat handwriting, easy modification after errors, convenient file transfer and backup, saving space, economy and environmental protection, etc. However, the disadvantages are the large workload of information input, the inability to monitor asset conditions in real time, and the existence of human errors that have not been solved.
The third generation barcode label
Barcode technology is an emerging information technology that is generated and developed on the basis of computer and information technology, which integrates functions such as encoding, identification, data collection, automatic entry, and rapid processing. After the data of each new asset is entered into the computer, the computer automatically generates a barcode label through the software, and prints out the identifiable barcode label paper through the barcode machine, and assigns a unique barcode identification to each physical asset, which helps standardize management And standardization; combined with PDA handheld terminal (ie data collector), it can also scan the code to identify the asset name, number, responsible person and other information.
Fourth generation RFID electronic label
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, also known as radio frequency identification, is a communication technology that can identify specific targets and read and write related data through radio signals without the need to establish mechanical or optical contact between the identification system and specific targets.
Use RFID technology to count fixed assets, equip each asset device with a unique RFID asset tag, and the inventory staff will take RFID readers to the site for inventory. Using RFID remote identification, combined with WIFI network, asset information is transmitted to the computer application system in real time.
Change the traditional visual inspection, asset confirmation and other issues. The fully automatic asset and equipment inventory function provided by the system improves inventory efficiency and accuracy. At the same time, in addition to realizing asset storage management, the system can also monitor asset equipment usage status, provide usage statistics and analysis report query functions, It can understand the status of equipment anytime and anywhere, realize effective management and control of asset equipment and resource allocation, and improve work efficiency.
