RFID Clothing Management Technology Application in Apparel Industry

in RFID Journal on . 0 Comments



The introduction of RFID technology enables the management personnel of garment enterprises to understand the key business data of current production, inventory and sales in a timely and clearer way, which greatly improves the modern management level of clothing.


RFID clothing management technology application steps


(1) Warehouse Management


Because RFID technology can simultaneously identify the characteristics of multiple tags in the case of non-contact non-visible, that is, dozens of pieces of clothing with electronic tag-attached clothing can accurately read all the logistics data at one time through the RFID reader. , greatly improving the efficiency of logistics. If RFID technology is used in the management of the inbound and outbound warehouse, the logistics management of the logistics distribution center, and the storage management of the retail store, the entire supply chain of “shop replenishment demand---distribution center---manufacturer” can be realized. Optimal management of the process.


The use of RFID technology in warehouse management enables visual management of all management units, which can greatly shorten packaging, handling, inventory, and statistical time, thereby reducing cargo damage, accelerating capital turnover, and greatly improving warehouse management efficiency. Through this process, 15,000 garment items can be verified per hour in only one RFID channel. Automating the verification process can reduce the time it takes to spend on a supply chain by 5 to 7 days.

 

(2) Logistics management


The benefits of RFID technology in the apparel logistics segment are reflected in logistics management efficiency, logistics costs, and delivery control. The application of RFID technology realizes the standardization of garment logistics operations, shortens the operation process and operation time, reduces labor costs, thereby reducing operating costs, increasing the throughput of logistics links, increasing the transparency of supply chain management, and improving logistics management efficiency. At the same time, the use of RFID can minimize the delivery error rate. The delivery error mainly refers to the shortage of the original box and the error of the package. Both of these problems can be minimized by using RFID technology.

 

(3) warehousing management


When the garments are processed from the factory for processing, the staff puts the goods on a forklift and sends them to the back-end warehouse. If necessary, a reader and antenna can be installed on each forklift to identify the RFID tag data. When the forklift takes the goods to the warehouse, it is read by the reader at the door of the warehouse and sends the label information to the warehouse. Manage the system and record the details of the receipt of the goods. In the warehouse, the goods are placed on the container according to their type, such as style or brand. The shelves are labeled with a barcode for identification. On a daily basis, employees will hold RFID cameras to read the goods labels and shelf barcodes, and link the goods to the stored shelves. The barcode scanner is embedded in the handheld. The container uses barcodes instead of RFID tags to avoid simultaneous acquisition. The ID number of several containers.


(4) Outbound management


Before the RFID technology was considered, the clothing distribution process was handled manually. That is to say, when the garments arrive at the distribution center from the manufacturer, the staff must manually check them one by one, and when the garments are sent to the clothing store, they are also packaged one by one and manually recorded information, resulting in many errors. After using the RFID application, the manufacturer's label is posted on the item to be sent and verified prior to delivery, after which an advance shipping notice is issued to the retailer. After the packaged garment arrives at the distribution center, it will be placed on the conveyor belt. During the delivery process, the packaged garments will be read by the channel RFID reader, and the data after reading will be transmitted to the system. The software will confirm the ID information. If the system is incorrect or missing, a warning will be issued to remind the employee to inspect the clothing in the box. After the garment is repackaged, it is shipped to the clothing store. Before loading the truck, the staff will read the ID number on the label in the RFID channel according to the packing list, and finally send the advance shipping notice to the clothing store.RFID Clothing Management Technology Application in Apparel Industry
