In the past, the selection of resource to execute various warehouse operation services was done by solely human experts. In this paper, a RFID-based Resource Management System (RFID-RMS) is designed in helping users to select the most suitable resource usage package for handling warehouse operation order by retrieving and analyzing useful knowledge from a case based data warehouse for solutions in both time saving and cost effective manner. The proposed system, which is suitable for usage in warehouse operating environment, enhances the effectiveness in formulating resource usage package by integrating the case-based reasoning techniques and automatic data collection technique, namely, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Through applying RFID-RMS in GENCO Distribution System, one of the largest international distributions and logistics based company. The utilization of warehouse resource is maximized while work efficiency is greatly enhanced.
