Application of RFID technology to improve the management of

In the past, warehouse management generally relied on a non-automated, paper-based system to record and track incoming and outgoing goods, and implement internal warehouse management with human memory. For the entire storage area, the uncertainty of human factors leads to low labor efficiency and serious waste of human resources. With the increase in the variety and quantity of inventory and the sharp increase in the frequency of in and out of the warehouse, the traditional manufacturing warehouse management model seriously affects the normal operation efficiency, and it is difficult to meet the requirements of fast, accurate and real-time warehouse management.
Compared with other industries, the warehouse management of manufacturing enterprises has higher liquidity requirements. This requires manufacturing warehouse management to improve warehouse operation efficiency and make full use of warehouse space. Introduce RFID technology to the management of manufacturing warehouses, encode materials with RFID electronic tags, and transmit them to the manufacturing warehouse management system, which greatly simplifies the query work and can quickly query the location of the materials through the system to improve production data The speed and accuracy of statistics reduce the difficulty of the work of summary statisticians. At the same time, since electronic tags are pasted on the materials, the traceability of finished and semi-finished products has become very easy.

For the manufacturing industry, there are mainly the following problems in warehouse management:
1. Accounts do not match
1. When receiving the goods (in the warehouse), the matching of the inspection quantity and the quantity of qualified products was not rechecked, and the goods were received in a muddled manner;
2. The material is sloppy, point the wrong quantity, send more, send less, send wrong, miss send;
3. The physical objects were not clearly marked when they were put into the warehouse and were not stored in the designated location, resulting in data on the book and no physical objects;
4. Errors occur during data entry, do more, do less, omit, etc.
2. The high error rate of manual statistics affects warehouse management
In the actual warehouse management process, due to the large workload and the large amount of materials in the manufacturing industry, errors will often occur under the existing manpower conditions, which will lead to a reduction in efficiency and affect the overall management efficiency of the warehouse.
Three temporary adjustment response speed is slow
The manufacturing industry is extremely competitive, and production line coordination and temporary business adjustments will put great pressure on warehouse management. However, traditional manual management models will greatly reduce the response efficiency of warehouse management, which greatly affects the adjustment rhythm of enterprises. Keep up with the current manufacturing environment.
RFID technology, as the core reading technology in the era of the Internet of Things, is being widely used in warehouse management in various industries, especially in fiercely competitive industries such as manufacturing. The application of RFID technology allows warehouse managers to inquire about material storage through the system at any time Date and other information. After receiving the outbound information, the system will specify the location and quantity of outbound materials, making the first-in first-out strategy possible. At the same time, RFID technology can read the electronic label information on the goods from the warehouse to the warehouse. At the same time, each step of the operation is automatically recorded in the system, and the accounting is matched from the technical level. The warehouse is managed, and the information can be synchronized and transmitted to various relevant departments in real time, and the adjustment information of any department will be transmitted to the warehouse management in order to adjust the warehouse management plan in time.
It is conceivable that after a manufacturing enterprise adopts RFID technology to manage warehouse management, it can optimize the structure of its entire production chain, and develop warehouse management from a simple storage function to an important link that plays a positive role in the entire production chain.
