In this paper, we investigate the issues of establishing adaptive feedbacks between complex systems (CSs) scheduling and execution from the perspectives of modern control theory. In using optimum control for the scheduling stage, feedback adaptive control for the execution stage, and attainable sets for the analysis of the achievement of the planned performance in a real execution environment, we provide a mathematically unified framework for CSs scheduling and execution control. The proposed framework makes it possible to analyze the correspondence of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) functionalities and costs to the actual needs of execution control and support problem-oriented CSs adaptation for the achievement of the desired performance. The developed framework can be applied as an analysis tool for the decision support regarding the designing and applying RFID infrastructures in supply chains.
