  ADVANTAGE OF THE INVENTION According to this invention, the commercial value can be grasped | ascertained in progress of the life cycle of a terminal, managing the life cycle of a terminal.

  Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings. In all the drawings, the same reference numerals are given to the same components, and the description will be omitted as appropriate.

  FIG. 1 is a block diagram schematically showing a logical structure of the terminal management apparatus 100 used in the terminal management system 1000 according to the present embodiment. FIG. 2 is a block diagram schematically showing the terminal management system 1000 according to the present embodiment. In the present embodiment, a terminal management system 1000 that connects a terminal management device A 100 a that manages value information indicating the product value of a user terminal 17 on which a data carrier 18 is mounted and a terminal management device B 100 b via a network 1. It is.

  The terminal management system 1000 connects the manufacturer 11 and the user 16 via the network 1. The manufacturer 11 includes a production department 12, a sales department 13, a maintenance department 14, and a collection department 15. Each department is connected by LAN2. The maintenance department 14 includes a terminal management apparatus A100a. The user 16 includes a terminal management device B 100b and a plurality of user terminals 17 (user terminal A 17a, user terminal B 17b...).

  In the system configured by the terminal management system 1000, the user terminal 17 produced in a factory or the like is shipped from the production department 12, sold to the user 16 via the sales department 13, and the sold user terminal 17 is sold. Are used while being maintained by the maintenance department 14. When the user terminal 17 is used, the life cycle of the user terminal 17 is realized such that it is collected by the collection department 15 and discarded or recycled by the production department 12.

  The network 1 is a wide area communication line and mediates communication of a device such as the terminal management device 100 connected thereto.

  The manufacturer 11 is a system area of a manufacturer that collectively performs production, sales, maintenance, and collection of the user terminal 17.

  The production department 12 manages the shipment of the user terminal 17 assembled and completed from the start of production of the user terminal 17. The data carrier 18 is given to the user terminal 17 by the production department 12. The data carrier 18 is a medium that performs non-contact information communication using a magnetic field, and is also referred to as RFID (Radio Frequency identification). The data carrier 18 (data carrier 18 a, data carrier 18 b) is a storage medium that can be attached to the user terminal 17. Information can be written in a non-contact manner, and the written information is stored in a storage area provided in the data carrier 18. The production department 12 stores the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 in the storage area of the data carrier 18. Further, the data carrier 18 may store a production number including the year of manufacture, a number obtained by symbolizing the function content, and the like. When the data carrier 18 can be synchronized with the power ON / OFF of the user terminal 17, it is possible to detect the power ON / OFF of the user terminal 17 via the data carrier 18.

  In addition, the production department 12 performs a quality inspection on the user terminal 17 and determines initial value information for each user terminal 17 described later. The initial value information represents the value at the time of shipment of the user terminal 17. The initial value information corresponds to the sales price. The initial value information is determined from the predicted life of the user terminal 17 and the performance of the user terminal 17. The production department 12 manages the production of parts used for maintenance of the user terminal 17. For the produced part, a part content point and a part life point are determined according to the attribute and performance of the part. The production department 12 creates a part point table by associating the part content points and the part life points for each part number. The initial value information and the parts point table are registered in the terminal management apparatus A 100a together with the terminal identification information. The production department 12 also manages the transportation and storage of the shipped user terminal 17.

  The sales department 13 manages the sales of the user terminals 17 shipped from the production department 12. The sales department 13 sells the user terminal 17 to the user 16 at a price corresponding to the initial value information determined by the production department 12.

  The maintenance department 14 manages maintenance to be provided to the user terminal 17 such as maintenance inspection / repair of the sold user terminal 17. When the maintenance department 14 performs maintenance inspection / repair, the maintenance department 14 registers the maintenance content in the terminal management apparatus A 100a. Further, the maintenance department 14 may cause the terminal management apparatus A 100a to register the maintenance content provided from the terminal management apparatus B 100b via the network 1.

  The collection department 15 collects the user terminal 17 from the user 16 when the user terminal 17 sold in the sales department 13 no longer needs the user 16 or loses its value as a product. The collection department 15 performs disposal when it cannot be recycled corresponding to the state of the user terminal 17 and manages the disposal status. On the other hand, if it is recyclable, the recycling status is managed. The execution of recycling is managed by the production department 12.

  The user 16 is, for example, a system area of a company that employs a plurality of employees. The user 16 has a plurality of user terminals 17 (user terminal 17a, user terminal 17b...). The user terminal 17 is purchased from the manufacturer 11 and its maintenance is managed by the terminal management device A 100a and the terminal management device B 100b. In the user 16, a plurality of user terminals 17 and a terminal management apparatus B 100 b are connected via the LAN 3.

  The terminal management device 100 (terminal management device A 100a, terminal management device B 100b) is a device configured by a general personal computer, and is communicably connected via the LAN 2, the LAN 3, and the network 1. The terminal management apparatus A 100 a manages the user terminal 17 for each user 16. Further, the terminal management apparatus B 100b manages only the user terminal 17 connected to the user 16 via the LAN 3. When the data corresponding to the user 16 stored in the terminal management device A 100a is updated, the data is updated by transmitting to the terminal management device B 100b of the corresponding user 16. On the other hand, when the data stored in the terminal management apparatus B 100b is updated, the terminal management apparatus B 100b adds information for identifying the user 16 and transmits the information to the terminal management apparatus A 100a. In this way, the terminal management device 100a and the terminal management device 100b are synchronized.

  The terminal management device 100 includes a terminal storage unit 101, a terminal information acquisition unit 103, a maintenance information acquisition unit 105, a maintenance information storage unit 107, an extraction unit 109, a point selection unit 111, an integration unit 113, and a calculation. Unit 115 and an output unit 117.

  The terminal storage unit 101 stores terminal identification information for each individual user terminal 17 assigned to the data carrier 18. Further, the terminal management apparatus 100 stores the terminal identification information acquired by the terminal information acquisition unit 103 in the terminal storage unit 101.

  The terminal information acquisition unit 103 acquires the terminal identification information received from the data carrier 18. The terminal information acquisition unit 103 may be a portable reader / writer, or may acquire terminal identification information via the network 1 or the LAN 3 from a portable terminal (not shown) connected to the portable reader / writer. The portable reader / writer has a CPU, a nonvolatile memory, and wireless communication I / O inside, and reads terminal identification information from the data carrier 18 in a non-contact manner by wireless communication. Since the terminal identification information read by the reader / writer is sent to the terminal information acquisition unit 103, the terminal information acquisition unit 103 can acquire the terminal identification information. The reader / writer can also write data to the data carrier 18. Therefore, terminal identification information is written in the data carrier 18.

  When the terminal information acquisition unit 103 acquires the terminal identification information, the terminal information acquisition unit 103 can also refer to the terminal storage unit 101 and determine whether the acquired terminal identification information is stored. The terminal identification information determined to be stored is sent to the extraction unit 109. As described above, the terminal information acquisition unit 103 also has a function of authenticating the user terminal 17.

  When maintenance is performed on the user terminal 17, the maintenance information acquisition unit 105 acquires maintenance information indicating the content of the maintenance together with the terminal identification information. Maintenance refers to a series of actions performed for maintenance of the user terminal 17 such as failure, repair, or modification of the user terminal 17. Further, the maintenance information is information indicating repair, replacement, or addition of parts constituting the user terminal 17. The maintenance information acquisition unit 105 sends the acquired maintenance information to the point selection unit 111.

  The maintenance information storage unit 107 stores the maintenance information acquired in association with the terminal identification information. The maintenance information storage unit 107 may store maintenance information in association with user identification information for identifying a user. FIG. 3 shows an example of the data structure of the maintenance information storage unit 107. “PCID” stores terminal identification information. “PCID” is associated with the “employee number” of the employee who is the user. “Version” is stored as 0 at the time of shipment, and is incremented every time maintenance is executed. In the “maintenance information”, information related to the content of the provided maintenance (“maintenance content”) and information related to the component of the user terminal 17 that has undergone maintenance (“component ID”) are stored. “Maintenance information” is associated with “version”.

  The extraction unit 109 extracts the corresponding accumulated maintenance information from the acquired terminal identification information. Specifically, the maintenance information storage unit 107 is searched based on the terminal identification information received from the terminal information acquisition unit 103, and corresponding maintenance information is detected. Also, the information regarding the maintenance content to which the maintenance content point is added and the information about the component to which the component content point is added are received from the point selection unit 111 and stored in the maintenance information storage unit 107 in association with the terminal identification information. Further, when the component life point is added to the information related to the component, the information is stored in the integrating unit 113 in association with the terminal identification information.

  The accumulation unit 113 accumulates the usage period of the user terminal 17 for each user terminal 17. The accumulating unit 113 can accumulate from the start of use of the user terminal 17 and can also add up the use period for each maintenance that has been performed from the start of the maintenance. The integrating unit 113 has a clock function. Therefore, when the data carrier 18 synchronizes with the power ON / OFF of the user terminal 17, the usage time can be measured by receiving information on the power ON / OFF of the user terminal 17 from the data carrier 18. Further, by storing the user terminal 17 as the start of use in the “use start date”, the elapsed time from the time of shipment can be measured as the use period.

  FIG. 4 is an example of a data structure stored in the integrating unit 113. “PCID” stores the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17. In “version”, a version corresponding to the terminal identification information is read from the maintenance information storage unit 107 and stored. As the “use start date”, version 0 stores the date when the user terminal 17 is first detected to be turned on by the user 16 or the shipping date. The “use start date” stores the date on which maintenance is provided in association with the version. In the “use period”, the use period in each version is accumulated. The data of the integration unit 113 corresponds to the data of the maintenance information storage unit 107 based on “terminal identification information”.

  The calculation unit 115 calculates the value information of the user terminal 17 based on the extracted maintenance information and the frequency of maintenance performed. The value information is information indicating the product value of the user terminal 17 calculated from the performance and lifetime of the user terminal 17 and the content of maintenance performed on the user terminal 17. The larger the value information, the higher the value of the user terminal 17, and the smaller the value information, the lower the product value of the user terminal 17. The calculation unit 115 can calculate the value information of the user terminal 17 from the extracted maintenance information and the accumulated usage period. In addition, the calculation unit 115 calculates the value information in consideration of the usage period for each performed maintenance. For this reason, value information can be calculated corresponding to the frequency of maintenance performed. The calculation unit 115 may subtract the value information according to the usage period. The calculated value information is sent to the output unit 117. Further, the calculation unit 115 may calculate the value information of each user terminal 17 in synchronization with the usage period being accumulated in the integration unit 113. When the calculated value information becomes 0, the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 is sent to the output unit 117.

  The output unit 117 outputs the value information together with the terminal identification information. The output unit 117 may automatically output terminal identification information when the value information becomes zero.

  The point DB 119 stores points in association with the contents of maintenance. FIG. 5 shows an example of the data structure stored in the point DB 119. Specifically, a maintenance point table (FIG. 5A) in which maintenance contents (shipment, repair, replacement, addition) and maintenance contents points are associated with each other, and repair, replacement, and addition are performed by executing maintenance. A part point table in which a part content point (described as “part point” in FIG. 5A) and a part life point (described as “life point” in FIG. 5A)) are associated with each part number. FIG. 5B is stored. The maintenance point table and the parts point table are created in the production department 12 and registered in the terminal management apparatus 100 from the production department 12. The “maintenance content point” is a factor indicating the influence of execution of each maintenance on the performance of the user terminal 17. In the case of “repair”, since it is difficult to completely regenerate and the value as a product is lowered, “−1” is set. On the other hand, in the case of “addition”, since it is expected that the performance of the user terminal 17 is improved, “2” is set. The “component content point” is a point indicating how much the component affects the performance of the user terminal 17. The part life point is a point indicating how much the repair, replacement, or addition of the part affects the life of the user terminal 17.

  The point selection unit 111 selects points for calculating value information corresponding to the content of maintenance from the acquired maintenance information. Specifically, referring to the point DB 119, keywords (for example, repair, replacement, addition, etc.) relating to the content of maintenance included in the acquired maintenance information are extracted, and corresponding maintenance content points are selected. Further, a keyword (for example, a component ID) of a component included in the acquired maintenance information is extracted, and a corresponding component content point and component life point are selected. Maintenance information is sent to the extraction unit 109 together with the selected point. The maintenance information storage unit 107 may store maintenance information together with the selected points. Moreover, the calculation part 115 may increase / decrease the value information of the user terminal 17 based on said point.

  Next, a terminal management method by the terminal management system 1000 according to the present embodiment will be specifically described according to the life cycle of the user terminal 17.

(Production, shipment and sale of user terminal 17)
First, the management method of the user terminal 17 in production, shipment and sales of the user terminal 17 in the manufacturer 11 will be described. When the user terminal 17 is completed, the production department 12 assigns the data carrier 18 and stores the terminal identification information in the data carrier 18. The terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 is read from the data carrier by the reader / writer and sent to the terminal management apparatus 100a. The terminal information acquisition unit 103 acquires terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 and stores it in the terminal storage unit 101.

  Further, the production department 12 estimates the lifetime of the user terminal 17 from the quality test of the user terminal 17. The lifetime of the user terminal 17 indicates a period from the start of use of the user terminal 17 until it becomes unusable. Further, the production department 12 quantifies the performance of the produced user terminal 17. The performance indicates the performance of each component such as a CPU, a video card, a hard disk, an optical drive, a memory, and a motherboard provided in the user terminal 17. The lifetime estimation and the performance quantification are performed using a known technique. The production department 12 calculates initial value information based on the estimated lifetime and the digitized performance. The initial value information may be calculated, for example, by adding the estimated lifetime and the digitized performance.

  The initial value information represents the value at the time of shipment of the user terminal 17. The initial value information corresponds to the sales price.

  The initial value information calculated by the production department 12 is sent to the terminal management apparatus 100a in association with the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17. The terminal identification information is acquired by the terminal information acquisition unit 103 and sent to the extraction unit 109. The maintenance information acquisition unit 105 acquires initial value information and sends it to the extraction unit 109. The extraction unit 109 stores the received terminal identification information and the initial value information in the maintenance information storage unit 107 in association with each other. FIG. 3 shows an example of the data structure of the maintenance information storage unit 107. The terminal identification information is stored in “PCID”, and “version” is stored as 0. The “maintenance content” is stored as the time of shipment, and 1 is assigned as the “maintenance content point”.

  Further, in the integration unit 113, terminal identification information is stored as “PCID” in the data structure shown in FIG. 4, and “version” is stored as 0. Further, a product life point is set for each user terminal 17 and stored in “life point”. The product life point is a factor that decreases the value of the user terminal 17 according to the period of use. The product life point can be determined by a quality test for each product number of the user terminal 17. For example, the product life point can be set to “−1”.

  The production department 12 creates information on maintenance content points. FIG. 5A shows an example of information on maintenance content points to be created. “Maintenance content” includes, for example, “repair”, “replacement”, and “addition” of parts. -1 point is given to "Repair", 1 point is given to "Replacement", and 2 points are given to "Addition".

  In addition, the production department 12 creates a part point table corresponding to each part in order to analyze the execution of maintenance in more detail. FIG. 5B shows the data structure of the part point table. The production department 12 performs a quality inspection for each part number and sets these points by a known statistical process.

  The maintenance point table and the parts point table created by the production department 12 are sent to the terminal management apparatus 100a and stored in advance in the point DB 119 of the terminal management apparatus 100a. Each time the production department 12 manufactures a new part with a part number, the part point table stored in the point DB 119 is sent to the terminal management apparatus 100a and updated. The updated parts point table is transmitted to the terminal management apparatus 100b via the network 1. The maintenance point table and the component point table may be created for each terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 and each product number of the user terminal 17. By doing so, it is possible to calculate the value information in consideration of the compatibility between the user terminal 17 and the component.

  Thus, when the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 is registered in the terminal management apparatus 100a by the production department 12, the user terminal 17 registered from the production department 12 is shipped in response to a request from the user 16. .

(Initial setting of the user terminal 17 in the user 16)
Next, an initial setting operation regarding the purchased user terminal 17 will be described. The user 16 receives terminal identification information from the data carrier 18 of the purchased user terminal 17 and causes the terminal information acquisition unit 103 of the terminal management apparatus 100b to acquire the terminal identification information. When the terminal information acquisition unit 103 receives the terminal identification information, the terminal management device 100b stores the terminal identification information received in the terminal storage unit 101 and the terminal identification information received from the output unit 117 via the network 1 to the terminal management device 100a. . At this time, the terminal management apparatus 100b sends user identification information for identifying the user 16 together with the terminal identification information. The terminal management apparatus 100a receives terminal identification information from the terminal information acquisition unit 103, and outputs initial value information and product life points corresponding to the terminal identification information from the output unit 117. Further, the terminal management apparatus 100a may read the maintenance point table and the parts point table from the point DB 119 and output them to the terminal management apparatus 100b via the output unit 117. The terminal storage unit 101 stores the received user identification information in association with the terminal identification information. By doing so, the manufacturer 11 can grasp that the corresponding user terminal 17 has been purchased by the user 16.

  The initial value information, the maintenance point table, and the parts point table of the user terminal 17 are received by the terminal management device 100b via the network 1 and acquired by the maintenance information acquisition unit 105 of the terminal management device 100b. The maintenance point table and the component point table are stored in the point DB 119. The initial value information is stored in the maintenance information storage unit 107 for each terminal identification information. The product life point is stored in the integrating unit 113 for each terminal identification information.

  When the employee who uses the user terminal 17 is determined, the employee number may be stored for each terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 in the terminal management apparatus 100b. The terminal management apparatus 100b can store the employee number in the maintenance information storage unit 107 in association with the terminal identification information.

(Use of user terminal 17)
As described above, when the terminal management apparatus 100 is initially set, the user terminal 17 is started to be used by the employee of the user 16. When use of the user terminal 17 is started (power ON), use of the user terminal 17 is detected via the data carrier 18. The terminal management device 100 b detects the start of use for each terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 via the LAN 3. At the start of use, it is stored in the integrating unit 113. Further, when the use of the user terminal 17 is detected to be terminated (power OFF), the usage period is stored in the integrating unit 113. FIG. 4 shows an example of the data structure of the integrating unit 113.

  When the power ON and power OFF of the user terminal 17 cannot be read from the data carrier 18, the shipping date and time of the production department 12 may be stored in the “use start date”. In this case, the “use period” may be measured from the shipping date and time from the production department 12. In that case, when the product life point is acquired from the terminal management apparatus A 100a in the initial setting, the shipping date and time stored in the integrating unit 113 of the terminal management apparatus 100a is also acquired. In this way, the user terminal 17 is initialized and used by employees.

(Maintenance of user terminal 17)
Next, an operation of the terminal management apparatus 100Bb when maintenance is performed while the user terminal 17 is being used will be described. FIG. 6 is a flowchart showing a method for storing maintenance information in the terminal management apparatus B 100b. The user makes an inquiry to the manufacturer 11 when the user terminal 17 needs maintenance. The manufacturer 11 dispatches a service person from the maintenance department 14 to the user 16. When maintenance is performed on the user terminal 17, the service person who performed the maintenance causes the reader / writer to read the terminal identification information from the data carrier 18 of the user terminal 17 that performed the maintenance. The reader / writer outputs the read terminal identification information to the terminal information acquisition unit 103 directly or via the LAN 3. For example, when the maintenance is performed on the user terminal A17a, the PCID “A” is output. In addition, the serviceman inputs the terminal management apparatus B 100b together with the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 that provided the executed maintenance content. For example, the service person inputs “the panel of user terminal A has been replaced with panel a”. In this way, the terminal management apparatus B 100b acquires the terminal identification information received from the data carrier 18 (S101). When the terminal identification information is acquired, the terminal information acquisition unit 103 refers to the terminal storage unit 101 and searches whether the corresponding terminal identification information is stored (S103). When the terminal identification information is stored in the terminal storage unit 101 (S103Y), the terminal information acquisition unit 103 sends the acquired terminal identification information to the extraction unit 109. On the other hand, if the corresponding terminal identification information is not stored, nothing is done (S103N).

  Further, when maintenance is performed on the user terminal 17, the terminal management apparatus 100b acquires maintenance information indicating the content of the maintenance together with the terminal identification information (S105). When the maintenance information acquisition unit 105 acquires the maintenance information, the maintenance information acquisition unit 105 sends the maintenance information to the extraction unit 109 via the point selection unit 111. The point selection unit 111 extracts a keyword (repair, replacement, addition) indicating maintenance content from the maintenance information. “Repair” is a keyword indicating that a part has been repaired. “Replacement” is a keyword indicating that a part has been replaced. “Addition” is a keyword indicating that a part has been added. The point selection unit 111 refers to the maintenance point table stored in the point DB 119 and selects a maintenance content point (described as “maintenance point” in FIG. 6) corresponding to the keyword (S107). The selected maintenance content point is sent to the extraction unit 109 in association with the extracted keyword.

  Further, the point selection unit 111 extracts part identification information (part ID, product number, etc.) that has been repaired, replaced, or added from the maintenance information. The point selection unit 111 refers to the point DB 119 and selects a component content point and a component life point corresponding to the extracted product number. The selected component content points and component life points are sent to the extraction unit 109 in association with the extracted component identification information.

  For example, when the maintenance content “The panel of the user terminal A has been replaced with the panel a” is input, the point selection unit 111 extracts the keyword “replacement” and adds the corresponding maintenance content point “1”. To the extraction unit 109. Also, the component ID “panel a” is extracted, and the corresponding component content point “30” and component life point “0.03” are added and sent to the extraction unit 109. In the maintenance information storage unit 107, “version” shown in FIG. 3 is input as “1”, “replacement” is displayed in the “maintenance content” column on the corresponding line, “1” is displayed in the “maintenance content point” column, “Panel a” is stored in the “component ID” column, and “30” is stored in the component point column. In addition, the integration unit 113 reads “1” from the maintenance information storage unit 107 in the “version” column shown in FIG. 4 and stores the component life point “0.03” in the “life point” column. The

  The extraction unit 109 stores the terminal identification information received from the terminal information acquisition unit 103 and the maintenance information received from the point selection unit 111 in association with each other in the maintenance information storage unit 107. Further, the maintenance content point and the component content point added by the point selection unit 111 are stored in the maintenance information storage unit 107 in association with the maintenance content and the part number of the component (S109). By performing the maintenance, the version of the user terminal is updated to version “1”. Further, the extraction unit 109 sends the component life points to the integration unit 113 together with the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17.

  When the maintenance information is accumulated, the terminal management device B 100b transmits the data of the maintenance information accumulation unit 107 updated from the output unit 117 to the terminal management device A 100a (S111), and the maintenance information accumulation unit 107 of the terminal management device A 100a. And the data of the integrating unit 113 is updated.

  The series of operations from S101 to S109 may be performed by the terminal management apparatus A 100a of the manufacturer 11. In that case, after a series of operations of S101 to S109, the data of the maintenance information storage unit 107 and the integration unit 113 are transmitted from the terminal management device A 100a to the terminal management device B 100b.

(Calculation of value information of user terminal 17)
Next, the operation of the terminal management device 100b when calculating the value information of the user terminal 17 will be described. FIG. 7 is a flowchart illustrating a method for calculating the value information of the terminal management device 100b. Terminal identification information is received from the data carrier 18 of the user terminal 17 that calculates the value information, and is acquired by the terminal information acquisition unit 103 (S201). The terminal information acquisition unit 103 refers to the terminal storage unit 101 and determines whether terminal identification information corresponding to the acquired terminal identification information is stored (S203). When the acquired terminal identification information is stored (S203Y), the acquired terminal identification information is sent to the extraction unit 109. If the acquired terminal identification information is not stored (S203N), nothing is done. The extraction unit 109 extracts the corresponding maintenance information from the maintenance information storage unit 107 based on the acquired terminal identification information (S205), and sends it to the calculation unit 115 together with the terminal identification information. The calculation unit 115 extracts use period information corresponding to the received terminal identification information, and calculates value information based on the received maintenance information and the extracted use period information (S207).

  The calculation method in the calculation unit 115 will be specifically described below. The calculation unit 115 calculates value information from Equations 2-5.

(Formula 2)
Value information = initial value information + maintenance value information + product life information + component life information (formula 3)
Maintenance value information = Σ (maintenance content points x component content points)
(Formula 4)
Product life information = Σ (Product usage days x Product life points)
(Formula 5)
Parts life information = Σ (parts used days x parts life points)

  The initial value information of the user terminal A17a is 1800. In addition, it is assumed that the user terminal A17a is subjected to three maintenances: (1) replacing the panel with the panel a, (2) adding the memory b, and (3) repairing the CPUc. Referring to FIG. 5, when the corresponding “maintenance content point” from FIG. 5A and the corresponding “part content point” from FIG. 5B are selected, the maintenance value information is (1 × 30 + 2 × 50 + ( −1) × 100) = 30.

  The user terminal A has a version of 1 after the execution of the maintenance in (1), a version of 2 after the execution of the maintenance in (2), and a version of 3 after the execution of the maintenance in (3). The usage period of version 0 is 784 days. In addition, the usage period of version 1 in which the panel is replaced is 125 days. Also, the usage period of version 2 to which the memory b is added is 24 days. In addition, the usage period of version 3 in which the CPUc is repaired is assumed to be 3 days. Then, the product use days are (784 + 125 + 24 + 3) = 936. If the product life point is −1, the product life information is 936 × (−1) = − 936. Further, referring to FIG. 5B, when the corresponding component life point is selected, the component life information is (125 × 0.03 + 24 × 0.1 + 3 × 0.1) = 6.45.

  Therefore, the value information of the user terminal A17a is 1800 + 30 + (− 936) + 6.45 = 900.45.

  The calculated value information is output from the output unit 117 together with the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 (S209). Thereby, for example, it can be grasped that the value information of the user terminal A17a is 900.45. Further, by outputting the initial value information together, comparing the value information of the user terminal A17a with the initial value information, the current value of the user terminal 17 becomes about one half of the value at the time of shipment. You can also understand that.

  The calculating unit 115 may calculate the value information for each user terminal 17 in a timely manner. As a result of the calculation, when the value information becomes 0, the terminal identification information of the user terminal 17 is output from the output unit 117. Thereby, it can be grasped that the value of the user terminal 17 is lost, that is, the timing of replacement.

  The series of operations from S201 to S207 may be performed by the terminal management apparatus A 100a of the manufacturer 11. In that case, the data of the maintenance information storage unit 107 and the integration unit 113 are transmitted from the terminal management device A 100a to the terminal management device B 100b.

(Recovery / Disposal / Recycling of User Terminal 17)
When the user 16 grasps that the value of the user terminal 17 is lost from the output result from the terminal management apparatus 100b, the user 16 requests the manufacturer 11 to collect. Also, the manufacturer 11 may instruct the collection of the user terminal 17 corresponding to the collection department 15 based on the output result of the terminal management apparatus 100a. The terminal management device 100a outputs maintenance information stored in the maintenance information storage unit 107 and usage period information stored in the integration unit 113 together with the value information. The output information is sent to the collection department 15. The collection department 15 determines whether or not the product can be recycled although it is no longer valuable as a product. The collection department 15 can calculate the value information for each part in consideration of the usage period and the part life point for each part. Information such as the period of use of recyclable parts is sent to the production department 12, and the production department 12 makes a plan for recycling. Also, parts that are determined not to be recyclable can be planned for disposal.

  Hereinafter, effects of the present embodiment will be described. According to the terminal management device of the present embodiment, when maintenance is performed on the user terminal, maintenance information indicating the content of the maintenance is acquired together with the terminal identification information, and the acquired maintenance information is stored in association with the terminal identification information. be able to. Therefore, the value information of the user terminal can be calculated based on the accumulated maintenance information. Therefore, the state for each terminal can be appropriately reflected in the assessed amount, and the asset value can be given to the terminal.

  In the prior art, it has not been considered to output information on the life cycle of the terminal to the user who is actually using the terminal. For this reason, the decline in the value of the terminal over the course of use cannot be easily grasped, leading to a reduction in business efficiency.

  However, according to the system of the present embodiment, it is possible to easily grasp the value of the terminal, and it is possible to place a valuable terminal according to the application. Therefore, even if the latest user terminal with high performance is arranged for employees who make full use of the user terminal, if the repair is repeated due to a defect in the user terminal, the current value of the user terminal Can easily grasp that it is low. Therefore, it is possible to provide the user terminal with the highest value at present from the user terminal whose value has been reduced to the employee who performs the business using the user terminal.

  Moreover, according to the terminal management apparatus of this Embodiment, the usage period of a user terminal is integrated | accumulated for every user terminal. The value information of the user terminal can be calculated from the extracted maintenance information and the accumulated usage period. Further, the value information can be subtracted according to the period of use. Therefore, the value information can be calculated in consideration of a decrease in value due to the use of the user terminal.

  In addition, according to the terminal management device of the present embodiment, the user terminal is accumulated from the start of use, and the maintenance period is accumulated from the execution of the maintenance, and the maintenance period is taken into account. Value information can be calculated. Therefore, the value information can be calculated in consideration of the usage period for each component updated by the maintenance of the user terminal.

  Moreover, according to the terminal management apparatus of this Embodiment, value information is output with terminal identification information. Therefore, the value of the terminal identification information can be grasped from the output value information. Further, when the value information becomes 0, the terminal identification information can be automatically output. Thereby, it can be grasped that the user terminal is consumed as a product. At this time, maintenance information and usage period information for each component may be output together with the terminal identification information. By doing so, it becomes possible to make a plan for disposal and recycling of the collected user terminals.

  The maintenance information may be stored in association with an employee number that identifies the employee. By doing so, the value information can be output together with the employee number, and the employee who uses the user terminal can be uniquely grasped.

  Thus, according to the system of the present embodiment, the product value can be grasped in the course of the life cycle of the user terminal while managing the life cycle of the user terminal.

  As mentioned above, although embodiment of this invention was described with reference to drawings, these are the illustrations of this invention, Various structures other than the above are also employable.

  For example, the terminal management device A 100 a and the terminal management device A 100 b are illustrated as being configured to synchronize via the network 1. However, the updated data may be stored in the data carrier 18 of the user terminal 17 and used as a storage medium for the terminal management device A 100a and the terminal management device B 100b.

  Further, in the present embodiment, the configuration in which the integrating unit 113 integrates from the start of use of the user terminal 17 and integrates the use period for each maintenance performed from the start of the maintenance is illustrated. The actual lifetime of the component can be measured by using the stored use period.

  For example, in the present embodiment, an example in which the panel is replaced with the panel a has been described. If the panel A is mounted even when the user A 17a is shipped, the actual life of the panel a is from the start of use of the user terminal A 17a to the time of replacement. That is, 784 days, which is the usage period of version 0, is the actual life of panel a.

  In this way, the maintenance department 14 measures the actual life for each part. The maintenance department 14 collects data on the actual lifetime of each component from a plurality of users 16 and performs statistical processing to define the lifetime of the component. Thereby, the next maintenance timing can be achieved for each user terminal. Further, it is possible to provide feedback to the manufacturing site of the parts managed by the production department 12.

  Statistical processing increases in accuracy as the number of data increases. Therefore, data indicating the actual life of the part is collected for a certain period, and statistical processing is repeated for each predetermined number of data. Thereby, the lifetime of components can be calculated | required more accurately. Therefore, the next maintenance timing is updated every time the life of the component is updated.

  The maintenance department 14 may statistically process the actual life of each part for each part number of the terminal. By doing so, the lifetime of the component can be evaluated for each part number of the terminal. This evaluation result can also be used for evaluation of compatibility between the component and the terminal.

  Furthermore, in the embodiment, it is exemplified that the component point is a point indicating how much the component affects the performance of the terminal. However, the result of evaluating the actual life of each part for each part number of the terminal may be reflected in the part point. By doing so, the value of the terminal can be evaluated while considering the compatibility between the component and the terminal. In addition, each time the life of a part is updated, the part point is updated. Therefore, it is possible to evaluate the value of the terminal with higher accuracy.

  Further, in the present embodiment, it is exemplified that each unit of the data processing apparatus is logically realized as various functions by a computer program. However, each of these units can be formed as unique hardware, or can be realized as a combination of software and hardware.

  Moreover, although the present network 1 was illustrated as a data network in the said form, this may be NGN (Next Generation Network) which is the next generation internet.

  Needless to say, the above-described embodiment and a plurality of modifications can be combined within a range in which the contents do not conflict with each other. In the above-described embodiment, the structure of each part has been specifically described. However, the structure and the like can be changed in various ways within a range that satisfies the present invention.
