Almost in every industry there often arises a need to disassemble some machinery or some structure and then to reassemble it at some other place. This is done because transporting the whole structure as a whole is uneconomical and may also cause damage to the structure. Reassembling a structure which is complex in design is an arduous and time consuming task and may also cause the system to malfunction in case the reassembling hasn’t been done correctly. Here we present a methodology not only to facilitate the reassembling procedure but also to verify whether the structure has been correctly reassembled or not. To do this we employ RFID tags which have been affixed to each component of the structure and a Reader equipped with RSSI to determine the relative positions of the tags. The information hence obtained is stored in database and is later used to place the components in the correct order as well as at the correct position at the time of reassembling.
