BARENJI, A.V.; BARENJI, R.V.  e  HASHEMIPOUR, M.. A frameworks for structural modelling of an RFID-enabled intelligent distributed manufacturing control system. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.2, pp.48-66. ISSN 2224-7890.

A modern manufacturing facility typically contains several distributed control systems, such as machining stations, assembly stations, and material handling and storage systems. Integrating Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology into these control systems provides a basis for monitoring and configuring their components in real-time. With the right structural modelling, it is then possible to evaluate designs and translate them into new operational applications almost immediately. This paper proposes an architecture for the structural modelling of an intelligent distributed control system for a manufacturing facility, by utilising RFID technology. Emphasis is placed on a requirements analysis of the manufacturing system, the design of RFID-enabled intelligent distributed control systems using Unified Modelling Language (UML) diagrams, and the use of efficient algorithms and tools for the implementation of these systems.
