How RFID Technology Leads Clothing Management To New Heights

- Jul 29, 2020-

For a long time, the application of RFID electronic tags in the domestic retail industry is also in full swing due to their better security, large data flow, long service life, and convenient and quick reading. More than 60% of the products sold by cosmetics and jewelry retailers in Europe and America carry RFID electronic tags. "In the past three to five years, the RFID tag antennas used in clothing retail, such as electronic jewelry tags, RFID clothing tags, etc., have been our main business performance, starting from Macy’s, to Decathlon, to Uniqlo, to Hailan’s home, especially from After Uniqlo's promotion and application, the retail application of RFID technology has been nearly 90% in the past three years," said industry insiders. The use of RFID technology can realize functions such as full-life tracking, efficiency improvement and intelligent anti-theft, and can solve the current problems faced by clothing management.

1. High-quality logistics, optimized supply chain management

When shipping the warehouse, use RFID equipment to quickly scan the goods, check the scanning results and the delivery notice, generate and print the shipping list of each box of goods, or the batch of shipment lists, and record each RFID electronic in the database Product attributes and product flow information such as the delivery time of the goods associated with the label, the destination of the goods, and the agent number. Realize the full-life tracking of commodities and the standardization of clothing logistics operations, shorten the operation process and operation time, and reduce labor costs.

At the same time, the use of RFID can minimize the delivery error rate. Delivery errors mainly refer to the shortage of original boxes and packing box errors. Both of these problems can be minimized by using RFID technology.

2. Efficient warehouse receipt, delivery, and inventory operations

One of the most important tasks in the sample warehouse is to ensure that the book quantity is consistent with the actual quantity. When the warehouse picks goods or the store counts, the RFID inventory stick can be used to quickly select the target goods according to the order to avoid wrong picking and missed inspection. There is no need to perform one-by-one operations during inventory, and efficient inventory is achieved. Using RFID technology to overcome the defects of large number of samples and time-consuming inventory, complete the inventory easily and quickly, the operation is simple and easy to learn, it can easily achieve the accuracy of the goods receipt record and the automation of delivery and distribution, so that the inventory will not be counted. There are omissions and losses.

At the same time, the sample entry and return information can be recorded to everyone through the sample management system, and daily and monthly data statistics can be performed. At the same time, it can be connected with the ERP system to improve the sample management system and lean the enterprise. The management of sample clothes makes full use of big data and cloud platform to realize the transparency of sample clothes information.

3. Out of stock alarm, timely replenishment

Through the RFID sample clothing management system, when a product shortage occurs in the sample warehouse, it can not only automatically alert the alarm, but also subdivide the details of product composition such as model type, color, size, etc., to truly achieve refined management.

4. Label binding products, effective anti-counterfeiting

In the production process of clothing, the important attributes of a single piece of clothing, such as name, grade, item number, model, fabric, lining, washing method, execution standard, product number, inspector number, etc., are written into the corresponding RFID electronic tag. And attach the electronic tag to the clothing.

The way of attaching the electronic tag can be: implant in the clothing, make it into a nameplate or tag, or adopt a recyclable anti-theft hard tag. Each piece of clothing is given a unique electronic tag identification that is difficult to forge, which can effectively avoid counterfeiting and solve the problem of clothing anti-counterfeiting.

5. Intelligent anti-theft, quick stop loss

The UHF RFID reader has a relay output function inside, that is, when the UHF RFID reader reads a tag or a tag with a specific format, the UHF RFID reader will close the relay, thereby triggering the external relay to close, and Start the alarm or alarm indicator to alarm. There are several situations for RFID tag anti-theft: the RFID tag of the clothing store needs to be recycled. In this case, the reader installed at the door of the clothing only needs to read the tag to trigger an external alarm Alarm. The clothing store’s RFID tags are not recycled. The clothing store can use UHF RFID readers to rewrite the tags on the clothing that the customer is about to buy, defining a byte of data. When the byte is 0, it means no purchase, rewritten as 1:00 means the purchase has been made. When the reader at the door reads an unrewritten tag, it will trigger an external alarm, and when it reads a rewritten tag, it will not trigger the external alarm. This can solve the misunderstanding caused by tag reading and writing.

6. Statistics of slow-moving products to maximize profits

The backlog of products in the clothing industry is a very headache. The unsalable products are counted through the RFID sample management system, and each product (subdivided into model, color, size) staying time in the warehouse can be quickly discovered which products are unsalable , After the season, managers can quickly make a price reduction decision or exchange, accelerate product sales and capital turnover.

At present, many apparel brands are facing challenges such as low supply chain efficiency, rising labor costs, and blurred market trends. In the face of large-scale collection and delivery, returns, inventory, and sorting tasks, the management mode of using barcode recognition technology is time-consuming, laborious, Fee venue. And RFID technology can just improve these problems, can realize automated production, warehousing and logistics management, brand management, channel management, and bring management convenience to the clothing industry.
