RFID technology is ubiquitous in our lives. Most garment enterprises have already used RFID technology, such as Wal Mart, Decathlon, Uniqlo, Heilan Home, etc. At present, in addition to being applied to inventory and supply chain management, batch checkout has also been implemented in stores, reducing consumer queuing time and improving the experience.
RFID clothing label input information
Write important attributes of a single piece of clothing in the corresponding RFID clothing label: item number, clothing name, clothing model, clothing grade, clothing fabric, washing method, execution standard, quality inspector, and other information. The clothing manufacturer binds RFID tags with the clothing, and the RFID tags on each piece of clothing are unique, providing full traceability.
01. Management of inbound and outbound information:
After the clothing is packaged, it begins to enter the supply chain. At the storage and transportation center, boxes of clothing will enter the channel machine of the reading and writing equipment along with the conveyor line. The channel machine scans the RFID tags in the boxes. After the scanning is completed, the channel machine uploads the obtained scanning information in real-time to the RFID intelligent receiving and shipping system, where the system compares the quantity of goods receivable and actually received. If confirmed to be correct, the channel machine will automatically release and transmit to the next link, If the scanned items do not match the box specifications, the system will automatically investigate and prompt on the display. The conveyor belt will send the abnormal clothing in the box to the manual inspection area, waiting for the unpacking inspection.
02. Clothing Inventory Management:
Traditional inventory is time-consuming, labor-intensive, and prone to errors. RFID technology has solved these problems by using handheld readers during inventory. Inventory personnel only need to hold a handheld machine to scan the warehouse clothing, non-contact distance recognition (usually within a few meters), quickly read clothing and goods information, and can also batch read, improving efficiency. Inventory collection data is accurate, ensuring the efficient operation of the warehouse. After the inventory is completed, the detailed information of the clothing is automatically compared with the backend data, generating statistical information for differences to be displayed in real-time on the terminal, providing verification for inventory personnel.
Inventory replenishment. The system compares the actual quantity of goods with the preset minimum inventory value. When a certain clothing reaches the minimum value, the system will automatically send a reminder alarm to notify the warehouse keeper that it needs to replenish goods in time to maintain inventory balance, avoid shortage or code interruption of clothing, and ensure that the normal needs of customers can be met.
03. Data collection in the fitting room:
RFID readers are installed in the fitting room, and customers will have statistics on the fitting frequency of each piece of clothing. Based on the purchase results, customers can analyze their favorite styles, collect data, and improve the transaction rate of their purchases.
04. Self checkout:
After completing the shopping, customers place the clothes on their shopping cart on the RFID self-service checkout machine, which will scan and provide a bill at once. At that time, consumers can pay by swiping the code, and self-service throughout the entire process without manual labor, shortening checkout time, reducing the burden on staff, and improving consumer experience.
05. Anti theft alarm:
When customers leave the store with their products and pass through the pillar channel door, if the clothes have not been paid, the RFID reader at the channel door will self sense and issue an alarm, playing a theft deterrent role.
Partial RFID clothing labels
The application of RFID technology in the management of the clothing industry is very important. RFID technology improves supply chain management, reduces costs, quickly and accurately collects data, improves efficiency, reduces the risk of inventory loss, and thus brings higher profits to clothing enterprises. The deepening application of RFID technology in the clothing industry empowers clothing enterprises and creates more value.
