Chapter . Modelling and simulation on an RFID based manufacturing system

B. Lu[a], K. Cheng[b]


RFID is becoming a much more powerful technology and being adopted in supply chains and logistics industries, and now it begins to be applied in manufacturing industry. But how to build a framework of the application and analyse the benefits of application quantitatively is still a challenge. In this paper, RFID technology is critically reviewed with respect to its technological basics. The constraints in a conventional manufacturing system are analysed. A framework for the RFID based manufacturing system is proposed. ProModel software is used as a modelling and simulation tool to simulate the role of RFID in a typical manufacturing system. A ...
