Inventory Management Techniques
Oil and gas industries have unique workï¬‚ow, working conditions & operational and environmental factors which demand online inventory management solution that effectively monitors the offshore operations to provide a safe workplace for site personnel & tracks the movement of assets for distribution across the supply chain. The remote monitoring of tote operations will ensure the safety of the site personnel by reducing the need to be in the offshore environment for extended periods to record and perform manual inventory. Online inventory monitoring/management system for tote inventory is built using RFID (Radio Frequency Identiï¬cation) & WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks). RFID and WSN underwent vast development in their own areas and the integration of these two versatile technologies(RFID and WSN ) opened doors to industrial automation.
