Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has become one of the most important technologies for improving management efficiency. This study enhances facilities maintenance by integrating RFID, web-based, and artificial intelligence techniques. A data management module is developed first to collect facilities maintenance data. A statistical module is established to graphically display the collected data. A prediction module is developed using fuzzy neural networks to periodically maintain the facilities. These three modules are integrated into a web-based intelligent RFID facilities management system. The applicability of applying RFID technology to facilities maintenance is studied using environmental challenges. This research validates the developed system’s performance using a real case. Experimental results show that RFID technology is appropriate for the practical maintenance environment. The proposed RFID system can improve facilities management efficiency, data transfer, data quality, malfunction prevention, service process time and planning.
