The constant demands for modernization of technological business parks and the high availability of technological resources provoke companies to invest in an unplanned and unstable manner in technologies. In this chapter, the authors observe the orientation of the strategic alignment and the perspective of the knowledge management with the objective to structure the implementation of technologies that are focused in industrial production. It uses a multiple cases studies method to verify the proposal of Knowledge Management in the production environment. In development, these multiple case studies evaluate how the insertion of RFID is given in an untimely manner, not allowing its users to obtain the best results from strategic management of knowledge for the alignment to enterprise strategies. These two constructs, reviewed in the theoretical framework, are used to analyze whether managers make decision based on these theories.
