Information : Consolidated Equipment Database
Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Keyport has developed a Consolidated Equipment Database (CED) system that meets requirements for tracking approximately $234M in assets. The CED was developed to address the time consuming and costly problem of tracking plant and minor property. However, Keyport determined that is a necessary process to comply with some contractual requirements and to achieve a robust business existence.
The system was developed in Oracle Version 8 and resides on a Windows NT 4.0 Server. This CED provides full life cycle asset management, status of assets, custodian and location history, depreciation allocation, vendor information, linkage of assets into assemblies or systems, and barcode inventory capability. CED interfaces with the financial system to provide plant property information for running the monthly depreciation process.
The creation of the CED and associated hardware upgrades has helped Keyport to lower its system maintenance costs. In addition, it has improved the accuracy of inventory information and provide customers with a system that is easy to use and meets individual requirements. With the interface to the supply requisition system and barcoding capabilities, tri-annual inventories of all minor property and equipment is accomplished with reduced personnel requirements.
