Abstract:

THIS RESEARCH SEEKS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A METHOD TO ELECTRONICALLY EMBED LOGISTICS-RELATED DATA WITHIN/ON HARDWARE COMPONENTS. THE SPECIFIC RESEARCH INNOVATION IS CALLED THE "LOGISTICS KNOWLEDGE BASE MODULE/TEMPLATE" (LKBMT). THE LKBMT IS A STAND-ALONE INFORMATION LOGGING DEVICE TO BE PACKAGED AS A MICROCHIP IN A MANNER VASTLY SUPERIOR TO CURRENT SMART CARD TECHNOLOGIES. THE LKBMT SERVES AS AN "ON-COMPONENT" KNOWLEDGE BASE FOR MAINTENANCE AND LOGISTICS USE. THIS DEVICE WOULD BE EMBEDDED INTO A HOST COMPONENT AS A MODULE DURING MANUFACTURE OR BE BONDED ONTO THE COMPONENT AS A TEMPLATE DURING RETROFIT. IN EITHER FORM, THE LKBMT IS EXTERMELLY POWERED AND INTERROGATED THROUGH A RADI-FREQUENCY PROBE. IT HAS A NON-VOLATILE, CRASH-PROOF MEMORY WHICH IS CAPABLE OF LOGISTICS DATA RETENTION FOR TEN YEARS. ELECTRONIC LINKS TO THE HOST COMPONENT MAY CONTINUOUSLY RECORD RELIABILITY-RELATED PARAMETERS, SUCH AS TEMPERATURE, VIBRATION, HUMIDITY, ETC., AND SERVE AS AN ELAPSED TIME METER.
