One of the challenges in RFID adoption is to deal with massive RFID data. The large amount of data continuously generated from RFID devices come with noise and redundant, and the data may be missing. This study proposes the enhancement of a high level RFID data management using the data from EPCIS and e-Transaction as pre-processing data sources. The results reveal that the enhanced features improve the performance of the system by eliminating noise and redundant, therefore, the operation time is significantly reduced. The missing data can be detected at the end of the operation.
