Application of RFID in logistics and warehousing
With the development of economic globalization and the rapid rise of the Internet network economy, the global logistics service industry is also facing huge challenges. Say The core warehousing solution capabilities of logistics, and intelligently registers and manages the information of goods in the warehouse, vehicles and containers entering and leaving the warehouse. Implement control over various links such as procurement, warehousing, sales, and distribution. The use of RFID technology to control the warehousing and logistics links saves time and costs, so as to realize the seamless docking of the supply chain and integrate the logistics process information platform management, which greatly promotes the data sharing, the turnover rate of goods and funds, and improves the work efficiency. Then the modern logistics enterprise management and information process synchronization become true.
Combining the technical advantages of RFID itself with the needs of warehouse management can well solve the current problems in warehouse management and improve work efficiency. Combined with RFID technology for automatic data collection, using RFID and wireless networks, a set of practical value, efficient and low-cost warehouse management system has been realized.
RFID warehousing logistics management is composed of a supply chain management system, RFID electronic tags and RFID readers. These systems combine data interconnection with each other to jointly complete the data sharing of each process link of item management. Data analysis is carried out through the back-end database management system, and RFID identification collection is the basis and methods to realize the management function. The Implementation process of RFID warehousing logistics management and control is as following:
Through RFID data collection, realize the intelligent counter check, statistics and data reporting of the goods in the warehouse, and complete the warehousing operation accurately, efficiently and intelligently
Through real-time RFID data collection, the product information on the cargo location can be obtained in real time, and the information can be counter checked with the information in the warehouse management system to complete the inventory.
When the item is being moved out of the warehouse, you can quickly obtain the outbound information, and verify whether the product batch number and location listed in the shipped product and the outbound list are correct, and automatically update the data to the database
It can realize intelligent distribution and record the position of goods on the shelf, and intelligently provide the optimal storage path and pick up path when in and out of the warehouse.
Regular inspections can be performed to ensure the authenticity of inventory and location status, enhance data verification and statistical functions, and improve the efficiency of management personnel in dealing with defects
Vehicle and personnel management
It can realize automatic identification and matching of different cargo location information to guide forklift drivers to carry out in and out operations, and it is easy to realize dynamic management of each forklift and personnel
Keep shelf inventory in real time
Real-time inventory data allows you to easily identify which products are moving and which are not. This enables companies to make corresponding supplements based on product inventory and order requirements
Optimize supply chain resources
The visualization of supply chain products enables companies to use their warehouses as fulfillment centers for online orders. With full visibility, companies can stock up on demand in real time, avoid reducing orders due to shortages
Reduce waste of corporate resources
Real-time analysis enables real-time decision-making. Enterprises can see which products are unsuccessful during production and operation and adjust orders accordingly, thereby reducing the need to reduce prices and promote excess inventory
Maximize inventory turnover
Combine your online inventory with production planning without the need for safety stocks. It is easy to perfectly match supply to customer demand to reduce excess inventory and improve inventory turnover
RFID technology uses wireless radio frequency to identify RFID electronic tag data transmission by identifying RFID readers to achieve the purpose of target identification and data exchange. RFID technology identification does not require manual intervention, is non-contact, fast collection, strong anti-interference ability, can also identify high-speed moving objects, and can simultaneously identify RFID electronic tags bound to multiple items. RFID electronic tags have the characteristics of multiple styles, small size, large information capacity, strong durability, reusability, high security and confidentiality, and easy portability.
The RFID warehousing logistics management system consists of RFID electronic label issuance and labeling, warehouse management, allocation and shifting, inventory counting and additional functions. Making the application for outbound goods, the identification of outbound goods, and the downloading of outbound records be implemented quickly. The warehousing management system includes location allocation setting, unloading product identification, and warehousing record management. As the application field of RFID technology becomes more and more extensive, the supply chain and warehousing logistics management fields effectively solve the problems of input/output of various business operation data in the supply chain, control and tracking of business processes, and reduction of error rates etc…
