A Study on E-Oriented Enterprise Manufacturing Execution System Based on RFID and Internet
The automation and integration in an enterprise has become more and more important, and radio frequency
identification system (RFID) has caught great attention in this area. RFID system is not only on-site management tool, but it
associates with manufacturing control system, material control system, warehousing management system and customer
service management system. It can more accurately grasp manufacturing resource and the production line information. This
study, from the manufacturer’s view point, builds up a simulated e-factory containing three processing stations, one
warehouse station, one packing station, and one transport station, with RFID using remote mechatronic control technology to
collect manufacturing information. This e-factory utilizes distributed control technologies with the help of RFID to set up an
internet-based real time monitoring system, including remote online user management interfaces, the internet-based
manufacturing execution system, and database management of purchase order, material inventory, and manufacturing
process. The developed system can be used as a reference for the industry to introduce RFID system.
