After the pursuit, it is cold to adjust the revitalization of RFID.

after the RFID technology and standard are mature and the label cost is reduced, how to get the huge benefits brought by RFID is a very important topic. If these key links can be paid attention to and followed up, RFID has become the biggest selling point for those competitors who do not do this work

RFID, one of the top ten strategic technologies in the industry in 2005, is considered hype by many people, but it is undeniable that there is a huge demand for transparency and automation that RFID can achieve. At present, although RFID tags have been adopted by some enterprises and groups in China to configure special experimental accessories for different materials, it will take time for China's RFID application market to mature because the problem of spectrum division has not been finally solved. In contrast, in the European, American and Japanese markets, the application of RFID is in the ascendant

the actual use of RFID mainly includes closed systems within enterprises and open systems between enterprises. The closed system is more practical, mainly because the open system has not effectively solved the problem of how much each enterprise should bear. Therefore, if the investment is proportional to the return, the closed system can be effectively promoted

for the introduction of RFID, the reason why it is not active is that the maturity of technology and standards is still low, and one of the main reasons is that the mobile tag with a read/write sensor and security countermeasures are not mature. In order to break this situation, the open system has been vigorously promoted. The key to the popularization of this system is the extensive use of labels in all links from manufacturing to retail

large circulation enterprises in Europe and the United States are the main driving force

compared with Europe and the United States, closed systems have been widely used in Japan, while the application of open systems is that large circulation enterprises in Europe and the United States account for the overwhelming majority. Some people believe that the monopoly of large circulation enterprises in Europe and the United States can enable them to be well implemented. Taking a home appliance retail enterprise in the United States (with an annual output value of about 2.5 trillion yen) as an example, the company requires the following points about the introduction of RFID:

all links in the supply chain can get benefits

build a full supply chain from store shelves to customer purchases

in the supply chain, all products can include "now, where?" And other transparent information

first of all, all links in the supply chain can get benefits, that is, for the purpose of win-win. Assigning label costs to suppliers is not reasonable in the concept of win-win. But we should also realize that in fact, the initial investment in the retail industry is also relatively large with regard to the introduction of RFID. According to the calculation of the ROI (return on investment) system of RFID operated by an enterprise in the U.S. household appliance industry, the result is that the operating costs of suppliers, including tag costs, are higher than those of the retail industry. Only from this point of view, it is indeed beneficial to the retail industry. However, because the retail industry has many stores and points, the initial cost of reading/writing machine import will greatly increase. As a result, the investment between suppliers and the retail industry is basically balanced. If the retail industry wants to obtain results, it must be determined to make corresponding initial investment

as for the link of customer purchase, there is now a view that the required information can also be obtained from the POS machine, but the use of RFID technology focuses not only on the information that the goods are "sold", but also on the effective sharing and flexible use of the information of customers who buy Promotional products, that is, to upgrade the supply chain as a whole to a new version, which can achieve the purpose of win-win

who is the leader of open RFID in Japan

the popularity of open systems in Japan mainly falls into three categories:

retail led

as mentioned above, it has nothing to do with the strength and monopoly of power. If a win-win relationship is established, RFID can be effectively introduced. At present, this type is also a major type in Japan. For the retail industry with many stores, outlets and complex logistics lines, it is easy to benefit from introducing efficient RFID. Therefore, taking the retail industry as the guide to popularize, we can get twice the result with half the effort

manufacturers dominate

for manufacturers, if the information about the trend from manufacturing to commodity delivery to retail stores can be shared, then its benefits can be imagined. Using the information of "whether the goods are sold out" can avoid the situation of insufficient supply and surplus of goods, and the production enterprises can share these information by pasting RFID electronic tags, so as to build a win-win relationship

government promotion

the popularity of RFID can also be promoted through the strong guidance of the government. Just as the U.S. Department of defense requires RFID electronic labels to be pasted, in Japan, the government can also play a leading role in social and public welfare fields such as environment and recycling. In addition, it can be equipped with O-ring fixtures, fixtures for tire industry, etc., and the government can also play a great role in the standardization work of the industry

low cost is not the only one.

use RFID at various points in the same enterprise and further promote information sharing among enterprises. At this time, the performance and standards of RFID are relatively mature, and the label cost is relatively low. However, can we succeed? The answer is No

in order to play the role of RFID such as automatic inspection and automatic inventory, it is necessary to update the commodity information synchronously within the group. In many companies, repeated working hours and costs are often increased due to the deterioration of services such as misdelivery and misordering. In the United States, the losses caused by these errors in the industry reach 3.5% of the total output value. When RFID is imported in this state, the information with low accuracy will increase like a snowball, resulting in chaos from time to time

also, because RFID has the advantage of one-time reading at the same time, in order to accurately get the warehousing demand, the outbound side must transfer the accurate outbound information to the inbound side. No matter how to upgrade the performance, it is unrealistic to read 100% absolutely. Therefore, if the so-called "accurate" warehousing information is not inspected, the significance of checking goods will be lost. In fact, there are more such companies than expected

in addition, can manufacturers effectively use the instant information of store goods, the location and status of circulation warehouses and other shared information? That is, in the process of building business demand judgment within the commodity life cycle, we also need to re evaluate the role of the organization, the conditions of trading partners, the reconstruction of the system, etc., which will take quite a long time. With the introduction of RFID, visualization of information is our ultimate goal

based on these, a lot of work needs to be done in order to get the desired results. After the RFID technology and standard are mature and the tag cost is reduced, how to get the huge benefits brought by RFID is a very important topic. If these key links can be paid attention to and followed up, RFID has become the biggest selling point for those competitors who do not do this work
