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.It is compatible with the recently announced standard ISO 18000-6C and is supported by early RFID adopters such as Wal-Mart and Metro. ... If a production error is detected, all clutches potentially affected must now be checked manually.
