Abstract

One embodiment of the invention is directed to a method of creating and maintaining a calibrated bi-metallic element assembly configuration in a strip chart recorder including a housing having top and bottom portions. The method includes acts of positioning a bi-metallic element assembly on the bottom portion of the housing while the housing is in an open configuration, closing the housing, and attaching the bi-metallic element assembly to the top portion of the housing when the housing is closed. Another embodiment of the invention is directed to a strip chart recorder, including a housing comprising top and bottom portions, the top portion of the housing having a first mating feature, a bi-metallic element assembly having a second mating feature, and a strip chart positioned on the bottom portion of the housing. The first and second mating features are adapted to engage each other upon closing of the housing.

Pedigree and integrity evaluation of packages

      
Application Number 11112755
Grant Number 07487037
Status In Force
Filing Date 2005-04-22
First Publication Date 2005-11-10
Grant Date 2009-02-03

Inventor Schmidtberg, Rupert A.

Abstract

The present invention is directed to novel systems and methods for authenticating the pedigree and/or confirming the integrity of a transported package. Among other things, a method is disclosed that involves receiving information from an electronic device associated with the package at an authentication appliance at a destination location, transmitting at least a first portion of the information from the authentication appliance to a server, receiving from the server a network address of an authentication computer to be used to evaluate the pedigree and/or integrity of the package, after receiving the network address from the server, transmitting at least a second portion of the information from the authentication appliance to the authentication computer at the network address, and receiving from the authentication computer a signal indicative of a determination made by the authentication computer concerning the pedigree and/or integrity of the package based upon a comparison of the at least the second portion of the information with data stored in a database.

Recording of location event information in RFID tags

      
Application Number 11112960
Grant Number 07484662

Abstract

The present invention is directed to novel systems and methods for transmitting location event information to and/or from an electronic device, such as a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag, from and/or to one or more location ID stations. Among other things, a method is disclosed that involves wirelessly receiving at least one signal at an electronic device associated with a package as the package is transported from a source location to a destination location in a manufacturing process, supply chain, and/or distribution network, the at least one signal including location event information that is sufficient to specify a location of the package at a time the at least one signal is received. The method further involves, based upon the at least one signal, storing data representative of the location event information in memory of the electronic device so that the location of the package identified by the at least one signal can be subsequently ascertained by retrieving and analyzing the data.

Automated identification of anomalous conditions in supply chain processes

Grant Number 07250858

Abstract

A product supply chain may be viewed not just as a series of discrete, unrelated shipment transactions, but as a “process” (or pipeline) that can be subject to statistical process control. The present invention is directed to novel systems and methods for collecting data concerning one or more aspects of a supply chain, for performing statistical analysis on the collected data to facilitate the identification of anomalies or inefficiencies in the process, and for communicating the results of such statistical analysis to those responsible for the supply chain so that remedial measures may be taken, if appropriate. Among other things, a method for analyzing a supply chain process is disclosed that involves automatically determining whether a plurality of data points, each representing at least one determined value of at least one monitored aspect of a supply chain, match a pattern indicative of an anomalous condition in the supply chain process.

Abstract

A product supply chain may be viewed not just as a series of discrete, unrelated shipment transactions, but as a “process” (or pipeline) that can be subject to statistical process control. The present invention is directed to novel systems and methods for collecting data concerning one or more aspects of a supply chain, for performing statistical analysis on the collected data to facilitate the identification of anomalies or inefficiencies in the process, and for communicating the results of such statistical analysis to those responsible for the supply chain so that remedial measures may be taken, if appropriate. Among other things, a method is disclosed for use in a system in which at least one first sensor is associated with at least one first item that is transported from a first shipping location to a first receiving location so that the at least one first sensor can monitor at least one physical or environmental condition of the at least one first item as the at least one first item is so transported. The method comprises storing first data accumulated by the at least one first sensor in memory, with at least some of the first data reflecting changes in the at least one physical or environmental condition of the at least one first item that occurred when the at least one first sensor was associated with the at least one first item, and automatically identifying at least a portion of the first data as having been accumulated when the at least one first sensor was associated with the at least one first item.

Abstract

The present invention is directed to systems and methods for collecting data concerning a supply chain, for performing statistical analysis on the collected data to facilitate identification of anomalies or inefficiencies in the process, and for communicating results of such statistical analysis to those responsible for the supply chain. A method for performing statistical analysis on monitored aspect of a product supply chain involves storing, in memory accessible to processor, first data reflecting first monitored aspect of a first shipment of first item occurring in the supply chain, and storing, in memory accessible to the processor, second data reflecting second monitored aspect of a second shipment of second item occurring in the supply chain. The processor is used to automatically generate report reflecting statistical analysis of the first and second data.
