Abstract: Radio frequency identifier (RFID) emerged in 2000 an intelligent remote object identification. RFID helps tracking object position and relevant information using radio frequency technology (Bouet and dos Santos, 2008; Pais, 2010). Its application in industries, highly increases the inventory management consistency and accuracy, by capturing in real-time observed object attributes for traceability and quality control purpose. In order to provide traceability and quality control services, RFID applications should offer two main services: business intelligence (BI) and mobility management. The RFID BI provides production traceability services (QoS metrics related to manufacturing processes). And RFID mobility service maintains accurate RFID tag location. In this paper, a generic RFID BI mobility' data model is defined. In the proposed data model, RFID product information generated by a supply chain organisation is translated or migrated from a producer to a consumer. This migration generates two distinct types of RFID mobility: internal (inside buildings) and external.
