As a tracking technology, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is now widely applied to enhance the context awareness of enterprise information systems. Such awareness provides great opportunities to facilitate business process automation and thereby improve operation efficiency and accuracy. With the aim to incorporate business logics into RFID-enabled applications, this book chapter addresses how RFID technologies impact current business process management and the characteristics of object-oriented business process modelling. This chapter first discusses the rationality and advantages of applying object-oriented process modelling in RFID applications, then addresses the requirements and guidelines for RFID datamanagement and processmodelling. Two typical solutions are introduced to further illustrate the modelling and incorporation of business logics/business processes into RFID edge systems. To demonstrate the applicability of these two approaches, a detailed case study is conducted within a distribution centre scenario.
