This paper proposed a system called RFID Document Tracking System (DocutraX) for Electrical and Electronics Department in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS to monitor movemen ts of staff documents from one department to another for processing. It uses a low frequency RFID tagging system coupled with a database to track the tagged document within UTP academic buildings. At present to check the status of any document, manually tracking has to be done where staff has to locate the document at all transit points for approvals before the document can reach to the final destination for processing. The proposed system will help the staff to locate the trail of his/her documents that are attached with RFID labeled file which will be detected at each checkpoints in the process by RFID reader. The reader will update database that has been created in the server, on which the staff may access the created database from his/her computer using the document tracking software that has been developed. The system also has an added feature where it is connected to GSM modem to allow the administrator or person in charge to notify the status of staff document through short messaging system (SMS). With this new system, movement of the documents may be tracked easily and efficiently and this will reduce or eliminate the cases where the documents go missing or going to the wrong department or staying too long in one department during circulation.
