Intelligent Field Resource Management (IFRM) is a radio-frequency identification (RFID)-driven solution for industrial and oil-field equipment that answers the three most important questions those in oil and gas field operations and maintenance (O&M) have about this equipment: What do I have? When did I get it? Where is it? Previously, those in O&M relied on bar codes or other inventory control methods for their heavy industrial material, consumables and equipment. However, none of these methods provided all the information needed – if they worked at all. “Our solution will tell them such things as exactly where that piece of equipment is, what kind of shape it’s in, whether it’s even functioning at any precise moment, if it needs to go back for a rebuild, etc,” said Wescorp COO Scott Shemwell. Wescorp CEO Doug Biles said IFRM’s “secret sauce” is Wescorp’s proprietary NAVIGATOR Process Management Services. “All the information related to the tagged equipment is tied to NAVIGATOR and stored securelyonline where it is available for collaborative initiatives,” Biles said. “This means you can not only find the particular piece of machinery you’re looking for, but at the same time you can get the manual on it, the service record on it-anything about the item you want to know.” Wescorp NAVIGATOR is a suite of process management services that enables Wescorp to reduce costs, save time and optimize field operations for its worldwide oil and gas clients.
