Application of RFID in Japanese clothing industry (2)



Japan proposed a national strategy for the Internet of Things long ago, and in 2004 proposed the "U-Japan" plan, which included the application of IoT technology in various industries. Throughout the world, Japanese companies are unique in their use of the Internet of Things technology to promote informatization, involving almost every aspect of people's daily lives. This article takes Japanese clothing companies as the research object and analyzes how they use the Internet of Things technology to promote the development of enterprise informatization.

IT system architecture of Japanese clothing companies

Through IT equipment, customers can complete the payment by self-service, and get coupons in real time, and the points will be automatically accumulated to the membership card. In addition, the invoice printer can also automatically identify the customer's shopping receipts and complete the printing invoice service independently. This greatly reduces the waiting time for customers to wait in line and reduces the work intensity of the clerk. This payment method is a win-win development model for customers and merchants.

RFID plays a huge role in the integrated management of clothing supply chain, product inventory management, location tracking, and fast calculation of POS machines. Through the Internet of Things technology, important node companies in the entire clothing supply chain can quickly and effectively obtain effective information on clothing, realize "visual management" of each link of the supply chain, better improve production efficiency, and optimize resource allocation. With the implementation of RFID technology, members of the supply chain, such as suppliers and retailers, can benefit from it.

In recent years, RFID has brought great benefits to the Japanese clothing industry. Its main manifestations are:

(1) For raw material manufacturers, it means a healthy inventory turnover rate and excellent supply capacity.

(2) For manufacturers, it means faster capital flow and transportation speed.

(3) For distributors, it means higher transportation efficiency, more accurate delivery capacity and goods tracking level.

(4) For retailers, it means fewer out-of-stocks, more intelligent and streamlined operating processes, especially when dealing with the price reduction caused by the backlog of goods, they can negotiate with suppliers to take measures such as return.

(5) For enterprise staff, no matter what color or style the product is, the status information can be obtained instantly by using RFID, which reduces labor intensity and saves time and cost.

Today, the application of RFID technology is ubiquitous. In the clothing operation management system, it is used to process and distribute the data between the "internal distribution management system" and the "store management system".

RFID Tags are affixed to each piece of clothing in the distribution center. The transportation inspectors scan and inspect the clothing according to the replenishment order sent by the distribution management system. The shipment inspector uses the touch screen computer and a special reader to scan the batches of clothing. On average, 5 items are scanned at a time, as long as they pay attention to what clothes are in the box.

The next step is to print the packing list and place it in the ready-to-wear box. Wait for the new label to be attached to the box before being transported. Through RFID devices distributed throughout the enterprise information management system will receive data on tens of thousands of items of clothing every day. This information is transmitted to the information management subsystem of the relevant store. Therefore, as long as the RFID system is equipped, it can be positioned quickly and accurately regardless of where the clothing is located in the supply chain. RFID is continuously improving the logistics processization and efficient management capabilities of the apparel industry.

Enterprise business intelligent management goals achieved

RFID can help companies achieve intelligent business management, thereby maximizing corporate profits. The warehouse management system can automatically obtain information such as the utilization rate and operating cycle of different warehouses, helping the warehouse manager to formulate the best cargo inventory-supply plan.

Intelligent sales management. A professional store's sensors are usually placed between the front and back of the store to track the activity information of each piece of clothing. The sales system can automatically obtain the shelf time, logistics status, what status and when to replenish the clothing, etc., and automatically issue warnings based on the sales situation; at the same time, the sales manager counts the clothing's attention to customers at different hanging positions in the mall, The effects of trying on and buying, and the different sales that result. Based on this data, managers can formulate a clothing placement plan that is conducive to sales, so that shop assistants can adjust the clothing placement position and space level in a timely manner.
