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 to 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 are small sections of code teach 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 asynchronous data transfers may be required as part of the decision support process.
These intelligent agents can also look in a database, such as the KnarrTek materials tracking databank, for events, such as the arrival of materials, that did not occur on time. An agent can also trigger other agents to take actions by sending them a message, thus enabling network decision making.
In most materials management decision support 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 developing custom automated data/information exchange interfaces.
At its simplest, all the actions of MilramX can be controlled by user defined rules without code development. But as the data interpretation algorithms become more complex, developers can code their own intelligent agents in the form of Data Transfer Objects (DTOs) in VB.Net or other .Net languages supported by the Microsoft .Net development environment.
Software development, where needed, is greatly simplified by abstracting most of the actions of MilramX into high-level subroutine calls, leaving the developer to focus on data interpretation rather than the minutiae of how the MilramX data transfers works.
MilramX can exchange data with a wide variety of databases and also with the web-services interfaces of Cloud-based systems, using prebuilt mechanisms and related rules within MilramX to minimize the development time and effort.
