PORTSMOUTH, RI (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
A2B Tracking Solutions, a leading provider of enterprise software and services for the U.S. Department of Defense IUID program has released a white paper, Achieve a Greater ROI Using IUID, which illustrates that managing unique items through serialized item management has tremendous pay-back.
The white paper cites real world case studies where impressive returns on investment have been realized with the IUID methodology and serialized item management. It also demonstrates the functional benefits of IUID across an enterprise, and it poses a series of questions meant to identify areas where waste of time and resources may be problematic.
IUID (item unique identification), which was first mandated by the Department of Defense (DoD) to enable military asset visibility per MIL STD 130, not only requires the identification, marking and registration of all legacy military equipment, it also requires DoD contractors to mark and register deliverable assets and DoD assets in their possession. The result has been a groundswell of awareness, among a large number of organizations, of the benefits of asset lifecycle management and real-time item tracking.
“The Mission Critical Asset Existence and Completeness (E&C) Audit is a high priority of the FIAR (Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness) Directorate,” said A2B President Peter Collins. “Secretary Panetta has set a 2017 completion date for that audit, adding to the realization that organizations can no longer afford duplication and waste of assets. This white paper is a great tool for investigating where waste occurs in an organization and how it can quickly be eliminated.”
