The use of RFID devices for real-time production monitoring in modern factories is impeded by the inherent unreliability of RFID devices. In this paper we present a consistency stack that conceptually divides the different consistency issues in production monitoring into separate layers. In addition to this we have built a consistency management framework to ensure consistent real-time production monitoring, using unreliable RFID devices. In detail, we deal with the problem of detecting object sequences by a set of unreliable RFID readers that are installed along production lines. We propose a probabilistic sequence detection algorithm that assigns probabilities to objects detected by RFID devices and provides probabilistic guarantees regarding the real-time sequences of objects on the production lines.
