The authors of this book clearly explain the potential advantages of using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in a modern manufacturing and supply chain context. Areas of emphasis include integration of RFID data into legacy IT architectures, RFID-MES-ERP integration, and cost-benefit considerations. The presentation is not restricted to intra-company production planning, but also emphasizes the benefits of inter-company collaboration. Six case studies based on SAPas ERP systems and MPDVas MES solution show how to successfully implement cross-company supply chain integration using RFID technology.To keep pace with the highly dynamic environment of the manufacturers, their IT systems and application software also had to become much more ... Service- oriented architectures (see Sect. ... even more efficient production plans call for more detailed and timely information about the status of resources on the shop floor.
