In this paper, we suggest a method that applies RFID tag information and a data mining technology to a manufacturing execution system (MES) for efficient process control. The MES is an efficient process control method for many enterprises. But, the MES is not an analysis technique for process control. Therefore, we will supplement a data mining technology and RFID tag information to generate a more efficient process control system. In order to accomplish this, we designed and implemented an efficient product control system and adapted it to a TFT LCD production line using RFID tag information and data mining. As a result, the method proposed solved defects in parts and problems of personnel expenses.
