In recent years, investment in my country's apparel industry has declined, exports have continued to grow negatively, and the growth rate of the domestic market has slowed down, and production has also fallen slightly. Affected by issues such as rising labor costs and difficulty in recruiting workers, the industry’s cost pressures and other issues have led to slow industrial development.
In the face of the new situation of technological progress, the pace of technological change is accelerating, and the apparel industry urgently needs to intelligently upgrade the manufacturing production system, use automation technology to reduce costs and increase efficiency, and achieve breakthroughs through differentiation.
The basic characteristics of clothing are more complex, involving styles, fabrics, colors, models, origins, brands and many other aspects. At the same time, it also has the characteristics of many varieties, small batches, fast updates, and tending to be individualized.
What functions of the clothing industry can be achieved by RFID technology
1. Improve sorting efficiency
In the clothing industry, sorting is an important part of the logistics distribution system. The human resources directly related to it occupy more than 50% of the logistics distribution system. The picking time accounts for 30% to 40% of the entire distribution operation time. The cost of the picking operation accounts for the distribution. 15% to 20% of the total cost, reasonable use of automatic identification technology can greatly reduce the time of sorting operations and reduce business costs.
2, commissioned processing control
The pre-ordered product ID is assigned to each OEM manufacturer, so that quality problems can be found during inspection and sales of goods, and the original manufacturer can be held accountable.
3, automatic management of raw materials
The purchased materials are coded and affixed with RFID electronic tags as the unique identification to realize the automated management of the procurement and storage of raw materials, picking out of storage, returning to the warehouse, and returning to the warehouse, through the establishment of material supply data files , Can effectively control the quality and price of materials.
4. Automatically complete production statistics and piece counting statistics
Through RFID technology, it can automatically complete product output statistics and waste product statistics, and then conveniently count the output completed by each worker, and investigate the relevant personnel responsible for the defective products.
5. Tracking goods in transit
Using RFID electronic tags as unique identifiers can accurately track goods in transit, and strictly guarantee the arrival time and quantity of goods.
6 Control the cost of materials
Establish a unique product identification with all production materials used, decompose the product production plan into a material use plan through the product material list, reasonably calculate the trim allowance, and control the material consumption of each batch of products and the deviation from the standard cost.
7、Quickly match orders
Ordering materials use the product electronic label as the only identification, which can ensure that the order and the arriving goods are matched one by one to avoid confusion, which is helpful for checking the arrival of each order at any time and investigating the supplier's product quality problems.
8. Multi-database collaborative operation
Realize warehouse management automation through RFID technology, can check the cargo information with the information that has been entered in the computer within a few minutes, realize the "visualization" of the inventory of the goods, and it is convenient to check the inventory of each warehouse and track the logistics process of the product at any time
9, improve inventory efficiency
Using RFID technology can accurately read all the data of the whole box of goods at one time. The clerk does not need to count the goods one by one. The handheld reader can also read the information of 5-7 items at a time, which greatly shortens the inventory time.
10, fast product delivery
Through RFID technology, write the order product information in RFID electronic tags, which can quickly and effectively realize the accurate distribution of products.
RFID technology has great potential in the apparel industry and other fields
With the continuous development of the national economy, the demand for product quality, safety and traceability has become stronger. Computer technology, automatic identification technology, and product digitization technology are gradually introduced into the field of production product traceability systems, which has become an inevitable trend. RFID technology can achieve this function. The traceability of product quality can not only protect the rights and interests of consumers, but also protect the interests of manufacturers and maintain the basic order and good health of the entire industry while making counterfeit and shoddy products lose their living space.
