Warehouse Management System Using RFID

Warehouse management system using RFID technology can effectively reduce warehouse management pressure


Traditional warehouse management generally relies on manually filled labels to record and track incoming and outgoing goods. Because handwritten labels are slow, error-prone, and cannot be automatically identified, warehouse management is very inefficient, and the warehouses that can be managed are also very limited. . With the continuous development of enterprise scale, especially in manufacturing, logistics, retail, engineering construction enterprises, the types and quantities of warehouse management materials are increasing, the frequency of storage and storage is increasing rapidly, and warehouse management operations are very complicated and diverse. The manual warehouse operation mode and data collection method have been difficult to meet the fast and accurate requirements of warehouse management, which in turn affects the operational efficiency of the enterprise and becomes a major obstacle to the development of the enterprise.


   The modern warehouse management system uses barcodes, RFID and other automatic identification technologies to attach unique identification codes to the goods, instead of handwritten labels, by optimizing the warehouse operation process, it can effectively improve the efficiency and accuracy of warehouse operations. Compared to RFID, the cost of barcodes is lower, so many companies use barcode technology to assist warehouse management. However, due to the barcode technology itself, the help for the warehouse is limited, not complete, and the most important is the efficiency. As we all know, when identifying barcodes, the scanner must be aligned with the barcode, and only one set of barcodes can be read at a time. For a warehouse with a large number of delivery operations every day, the workload is huge, which is limited to a certain extent. The warehouse efficiency has been further improved.

RFID is a radio frequency identification technology that reads or writes RFID tag information by radio waves. Therefore, not only can the recognition distance be as close as possible, but also a large number of RFID tags can be read at the same time, and more importantly, the RFID can penetrate the object to identify the RFID tag inside the object. Therefore, RFID has great technical advantages compared to barcodes. In recent years, with the maturity of RFID technology, the price of RFID tags is getting lower and lower. More and more enterprises are adopting RFID technology to optimize the operation process of warehouses and logistics distribution links, and realize the refined management of enterprise inventory assets.

With the increasing frequency of entry and exit of enterprise materials, enterprises are increasingly demanding warehouse support work, and also bring about an increase in warehouse management tasks. At present, most enterprise warehouse management mainly adopts two methods: one is manual management. This type of management is mainly based on manual entry. Every time the inventory information is checked, all materials must be inspected. The efficiency is low and the error rate is high. A large amount of materials are accumulated and cannot be used in time, resulting in great waste of resources. The second is barcode management. This management method can improve the speed of materials outing and warehousing, improve work efficiency, and save human resources. However, barcodes also have defects such as easy copying, no anti-pollution, no moisture, cumbersome operation, and easy data loss.

RFID technology is a non-contact automatic identification technology that performs non-contact two-way communication through radio frequency signals to achieve automatic identification of target objects and obtain relevant data information. It has the advantages of non-contact, large capacity, fast, high fault tolerance, anti-interference and corrosion resistance, safety and reliability, etc. It can make up for the defects of bar code technology, so it is widely used in the field of modern warehouse logistics management.

The RFID-based warehousing management system is based on the traditional warehousing management system and combines advanced RFID technology to achieve timely and accurate purchase, inventory control and delivery, reduce the overall cost of the enterprise, and improve customer service quality. Ultimately enhance the core market competitiveness of the company.

1. Visual management warehouse

Through the RFID handheld terminal, multiple pieces of information can be collected without direct contact, and the information can be transmitted back to the RFID storage management system and stored, and the position information and product information of the product can be kept at any time through the system, so that Reduce the time to find goods, the efficiency of picking and delivery has been greatly improved.


2.Automated, precise management of warehouses

RFID technology can be used to directly manage the inbound and outbound warehouses, and return information to the system, reducing manual operations while reducing errors, and reducing damage to goods. This is very important for food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, cold chain and other industries. important.


3.Information management warehouse


Using the RIFD warehouse management system, it can provide information management methods for warehouses, more accurate and real-time data and data analysis charts, help enterprises better grasp the inventory status of goods, avoid overstocking, and can appear in the process of operation control. The abnormality is promptly reminded, and emergency measures are taken to ensure that the problem is quickly solved and the warehouse is properly operated.

The warehouse management system using RFID technology can effectively reduce the pressure of warehouse management, reduce the cost of management, labor, time, etc., and realize the informationization, automation, precision and visual management of warehouse materials, so the system is the future development of the enterprise direction.
