Goals

Goals

  • Define use cases where event processing can be applied to RFID

  • Identify weaknesses in event processing concepts and technologies with respect to RFID

  • Identify opportunities for RFID with event processing concepts

  • Are sensor applications the next Event Processing sweet spot?


Rfid concepts relevant to ep

RFID Concepts (relevant to EP)

  • Serialized identifier for assets

  • Identifier structure (tag content)

  • No line of sight requirement

  • Filtering & Collection

  • Event Granularity

  • Other types of Sensors and event input


Event processing rfid events

Event Processing & RFID Events

  • Event Collection

    • Raw Read

    • Reader Controller/Management

  • Capture Applications

    • Correlate

      • Retrieve and apply context

      • To other events (same tag)

      • To different asset class

      • To other event streams

    • React

  • Event Report/Analysis

    • Higher level business messages to application ecosystem

    • Higher level event correlation

  • Event Repository

    • Archive/Consolidate

    • Support track and trace with required level of detail

Use case 1 cold chain compliance in supply chain

Use Case 1: Cold Chain Compliance in Supply Chain


Sample business cases

Sample Business Cases

  • Warehousing / Supply Chain / Transportation

    • Creates a chain of custody to determine where in the cold chain a temperature breach has occurred if at all

    • With integration, this solution can tell operators in real time, to accept, reject, or accelerate the product through the supply chain (dynamic queuing—not limited to FIFO or Expiration Date)

  • Disaster Planning and Recovery

    • Allows companies to understand the temperature changes in products when an anticipated power outage takes place. Executed at retail stores with a handheld and tags in the coolers / freezers.


Web based reporting secured

Web Based Reporting (Secured)


Sample business case benefits

Sample Business Case Benefits

Accountability / Profitability

  • Financial obligation for refused product is placed on the correct source in the chain of custody because there is a correlation between the cold chain breach and the time it took place

    Quality

  • The shelf life of temperature sensitive products is impacted in a negative manner by variations in temperature.

  • In understanding the impact temperature has on shelf life, the amount of time that the product was in an unacceptable temperature range must be known (degree minutes).


Sample business case benefits cont d

Sample Business Case Benefits, cont’d

In-stock Position

  • Cold chain breaches are identified immediately versus when the recipient opens the product and determines that it is unacceptable. That product must be immediately reordered and increases the safety stock levels.

    Food Safety Liability

  • Microbial activity starts at an exponential rate at temperatures over 40°F

  • The consequences of infecting a customer with this type of illness are detrimental, not only from a financial sense but a company’s reputation is tarnished.


Use case 2 asset management hospital

Use Case 2: Asset Management (Hospital)


Rfid applications at hospitals

RFID Applications At Hospitals

  • Patient Wristband

  • Blood Product Management

  • ER, OR, ICU Management

  • Point of Care

  • Pharmaceutical Pedigree

  • Combating Counterfeit Drugs

  • Asset Management


Why asset management

Why Asset Management?

  • National average utilization of mobile equipment is 45% - Universal Hospital Services

  • Hospitals can lose nearly $1 million a year in medical equipment thefts alone - HCPro Healthcare Marketplace

  • Five to fifteen percent of hospital inventory is written off each year since it can no longer be located or more importantly serviced - Frost & Sullivan

  • “Equipment moving from patient to patient without going through decontamination in between has become a significant issue to JCAHO in regard to infection control in hospitals” - JCAHO Sentinel Alert

  • To prevent infant mix-up

  • To build an infrastructure

  • Requisition / Distribution

  • Rentals

  • Safety / Risk Management

  • Transport

  • Equipment Cleaning

  • Regulatory Compliance

  • Clinical Engineering

Use case 3 people tracking security

Use Case 3 – People Tracking/Security


Losing a child is a huge problem

Losing a Child is a HUGE Problem

  • Kids get lost everywhere: amusement parks, shopping malls, stadiums, skiing areas, etc.

  • Kids tend to wander away

  • Kids are sometimes kidnapped

  • If a child is missing, EVERY SECOND COUNTS


Solution overview

Solution Overview

  • Enrich RFID data by doing a DB subquery

    • Reader locations

    • Family information

  • Split the enriched stream into Parents and Children streams

  • Join Parents and Children streams and select the pairs that are far apart


Location based rfid applications lessons learned

Location-based RFID Applications: Lessons Learned

  • Must analyze large volumes of data at high data rates

  • Must provide real-time response

  • Must enrich real-time data with reference data from databases

  • Must provide functionality to make distance-based correlation easy


Summary

Summary


Common themes for sensors ep

Common Themes for Sensors & EP

  • Interfacing with Real World

    • Volumes, incomplete data, out of order

  • Temporal Horizons

    • Some short

    • Some longer term

  • Deriving Higher Level Events

    • At different levels in the information chain

  • Environments with Multiple Streams

  • Event Processing Driving Process Management in Dynamic Environments


Goals1

Goals

  • Define use cases where event processing can be applied to RFID

  • Identify weaknesses in event processing concepts and technologies with respect to RFID

  • Identify opportunities for RFID with event processing concepts

  • Are sensor applications the next Event Processing sweet spot?


Challenges for ep in rfid

Challenges for EP in RFID

  • Cost

  • Is there COTS opportunity?

  • It’s a hardware world …

  • Do enterprises realize that they have an event based problem?

  • Implementing hierarchical filtering and correlation
