Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods are described for a wireless asset-tracking system that enables automated continuous characterization of aspects of shipment flow through a supply chain. In various embodiments, modular wireless tracking devices traveling with shipments report location and other data to a computational back end. The data are processed by analytic software running on the back end, which produces outputs such as supply-chain maps and metrics. The back-end software monitors for anomalies (e.g.,delays, diversions) and notifies the user of prominent issues. In addition, the software remotely manages power consumption by trackers. It may also indicate opportunities for improving the efficiency of the supply chain.

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour un système de suivi d'actifs sans fil qui permet une caractérisation continue automatisée d'aspects de flux d'expédition par l'intermédiaire d'une chaîne d'approvisionnement. Dans divers modes de réalisation, des dispositifs de suivi sans fil modulaires se déplacent avec un emplacement de rapport d'expéditions et d'autres données à une extrémité arrière de calcul. Les données sont traitées par un logiciel analytique s'exécutant sur l'extrémité arrière, qui produit des sorties telles que des cartes et des métriques de chaînes d'approvisionnement. Le logiciel dorsal surveille des anomalies (par exemple, des retards, des divergences) et notifie à l'utilisateur les problèmes importants. De plus, le logiciel gère à distance la consommation d'énergie par des suiveurs. Il peut également indiquer des opportunités d'amélioration de l'efficacité de la chaîne logistique.
