Research and Implementation of Real-Time Scheduling Management of WIP in the Workshop Based on RFID


Article Preview

According to the problem of being hard to achieve precise management of production in the actual production environment, RFID tags are used to identity production materials and RFID readers are placed at some important workstations and warehouse channels, to gain products information in real-time, automatically and accurately. On the basis, the paper uses J2EE programming to design the real-time scheduling management system of WIP (work-in-process), and realizes the closed-loop control of production. The system has been successfully applied to Shanghai Key Laboratory of Intelligent Manufacturing and Robotics, and satisfactory results are obtained.
