Radio Frequency Identification (RFID): A Technology for Enhancing Computerized Maintenance System (CMMS)

چکیده

Abstract
While Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) enables maintenance managers and supervisors to access information about equipment, manpower and maintenance policies, there is still a need to facilitate getting data/information into the backend database where it can be utilized by the organization as information to make decisions regarding the operation of the organization. Significant gains can be yielded through the use of the internet and the new connective technologies such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). The aim of this article is to demonstrate integration of the two subjects. For this purpose, CMMS and RFID have been introduced and their integration has been demonstrated and discussed. The findings imply that RFID can provide competitive advantages to organizations as a prerequisite and supportive technology for CMMS.
