MilramX is a real-time Artificial Intelligence (AI) software platform which uses the paradigm of interacting intelligent agents. It is used for applications that integrate the industrial enterprise and supply chain by "Making sure that everyone in each organization has the information they need to do their jobs, when they need that information in a format that is most useful to them".
MilramX uses an Intelligent Agent architecture to intelligently fetch and interpret the latest updates to sources of data that it is monitoring. In this way MilramX is able to provide the information, in near real-time, that people in different parts of an organization need, rather than just moving data between systems. This information transfer may be in the form of updates to the systems they use or by sending Emails or Text Messages.
Intelligent agents, also known as DTOs or Data Transfer Objects, are small sections of code, each of which is tasked with a particular function, such as moving updates to a specific data object from one system to another or examining the data object to see if an alert should be triggered. These intelligent agents are independently scheduled as many simultaneous data transfers may be required as part of the operations management processes for the enterprise.
Intelligent agents can also automate more complex tasks, such as automatically generating purchase orders, work orders, pick orders and ship orders as new customer orders arrive. They can also be used to learn the parameters of operational models, which can be used, for example, to predict when a customer's order will be completed.
In addition, a MilramX operations management system includes an Inventory and Operations Management (IOM) database, in which MilramX saves the status of customer orders, inventory, projects, and other like information. This is so that this information is readily available for operations managers and their staff, through an enterprise management portal. The portal is a website that is accessible on a wide variety of web-browser based devices anywhere, and at any time, that managers or their staff need to view the status of inventory and operations for their enterprise, possibly across multiple plants, warehouses, and field sites.
In most inventory and operations management applications, MilramX provides over 90% of the needed code, either automatically generated or supplied as code libraries. This enables these applications to be rapidly implemented at much lower cost and in a much shorter time than alternate approaches.
