RFID used in digital warehouse management of clothing industry
Every day, fashion is shipped from the factory, and the cost of manual inventory, out-of-stock management, and theft prevention of these goods continues to rise. Retailers are under pressure to maximize business process investment returns. With radio frequency identification (RFID), business intelligence is available throughout the enterprise value chain, providing important information for making business decisions quickly and accurately. RFID has become a mature solution through continuous development. With this solution, you can understand the inventory situation more clearly and more accurately, thereby reducing out-of-stock situations, increasing sales, and reducing the workload of periodic inventory.
With the continuous increase of production and sales business volume, the increasing variety of commodities, and some problems that need to be solved are gradually emerging. First of all, it is an extremely huge and cumbersome task to manually manage all types of merchandise in and out of the warehouse. In addition to manual scanning and input of barcodes, it is also necessary to confirm information in multiple links; secondly, traditional barcodes The system has obvious shortcomings, such as easy contamination, breakage, need to stop waiting to scan one by one, manual scanning, high labor intensity, etc., the batch reading efficiency is not high, and can not meet the needs of fast and accurate; Bulk orders must be disassembled and unpacked one by one, which is more time-consuming, laborious and easier to introduce mistakes.
In recent years, infringements such as imitation and counterfeit brands have emerged in an endless stream. However, due to the lack of effective anti-counterfeiting measures, the economic benefits and brand value of enterprises have been greatly affected.
In response to the above problems, we use RFID solutions, use a digital management system to carry out information management of the entire process of warehouse management, and integrate with the existing enterprise information system to build a digital warehouse with modern commercial enterprises. Management system. It can not only meet the requirements of the distribution operation mode in modern logistics, it is suitable for large-scale busy logistics distribution, ensure high-quality data exchange in the supply chain, and at the same time, through the tracking solution from the company’s order to the supplier’s production and supply Increasing its transparency in the chain can effectively improve the level of warehousing and logistics management, save labor costs, and can play a huge role in the management of the commodity supply chain.
The introduction of RFID technology in the existing warehouse management can also automatically collect data from various operations such as warehouse arrival inspection, warehousing, warehousing, transfer, shifting, inventory counting, etc. to ensure all aspects of warehouse management The speed and accuracy of data input ensure that the enterprise can accurately grasp the real data of the inventory in a timely manner, and reasonably maintain and control the enterprise inventory. Through full integration with the existing enterprise ERP system, it is also easy to manage the batches and sources of commodities, and realize automatic comparison of the goods in and out of the warehouse, and automatically send an alarm when abnormal. By using the system’s storage location management function, you can timely grasp the current location of all inventory materials, which is conducive to improving the efficiency of warehouse management.
RFID tags have a unique ID code in the world and cannot be copied, which can fundamentally solve the problem of anti-counterfeiting.
In the past two years, the United States has expanded rapidly on a large scale. Its annual garment output has exceeded 100 million pieces, its stores have expanded to 3,000, and its storage capacity has increased to 300,000 square meters… The burden on the supply chain has been greatly increased, especially the inventory in and out volume has skyrocketed. The efficiency of the inspection and selection of goods quickly declined, and the ins and outs of the goods made the front of the regional warehouse always full of vehicles, which became the key to restrict the rapid linkage of the entire supply chain. To this end, the US state once lowered the sampling inspection rate to 15% to improve efficiency. As a result, out-of-stock, mis-delivery, and over-delivery events occurred frequently.
Once the RFID tag is added to the clothing, there is no need to open the box for inspection or random inspection, and the goods can speed up the bulk circulation. According to the current technology, using an RFID scanner, the read rate of a box of 100 garments within 50-100 cm is 100%. As a result, how many kinds of garments are there in the whole box of goods, and how are the different colors and sizes allocated. It is clear that the boxes of goods are scanned at one time and passed quickly without having to be checked piece by piece like bar codes, which greatly improves the efficiency of goods in and out of the warehouse and breaks the bottleneck of inefficient supply chain.
For the same reason, the retail side also gets more convenience. In the receiving link, the type and quantity of the pre-received goods are set through the background, which does not require many people to participate. It can be quickly completed by simply scanning. When taking stock, put the goods on a special stocking table. The variety, color, size, and number of pieces are clear at a glance. The shelves of key commodities fail to be “full color and full size”, the system will notify the clerk to fill up the goods, so that the shelves “timely change”……
