Living in an on-demand economy, everyone wants super speedy fulfillment, delivery, and return/exchange yesterday. Is your warehouse already equipped to handle the extreme asset and production identification, tracking, and management that comes with the on-demand landscape?
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is commonly used in various application for traced, from production through the supply chain. RFID uses a chip and tag combination for optimal reading, making it superior to barcodes with the ability to be read from long distances and storing significantly more information.
RFID technology can increase operational efficiency, eliminate human error, and reduce capital costs. RFID technology also provides access to real-time data, offering insight for better decision making and precise asset management. Each tag has its own unique serial number.
RFID readers can be fixed for maximum visibility and pinpointing location throughout the warehouse. Readers also come as handheld readers and mobile computers to extend a network’s visibility beyond the walls of the warehouse.
As warehouse labels age, such as rack and bin labels and vertical aisle signs, they lose their scannability and visibility. This causes slowdowns on stocking orders and even confusion about where the proper materials are or where they go. So now you must consider what it will take to replace all those labels. How much time will it take? Will it interfere with getting orders out on time?
What if you don’t even have a system set up in your warehouse yet? As you grow and your warehouse starts increasing in capacity and size, not having a proper system in place will negatively impact the productivity of workers.
From the floor to the bins, from the shelves to the aisle signs, here are some of solutions that will work for you and your warehouse. Warehouse management systems need to keep up with the changing times and increasing demands. This is your first stop to find out more about what you need to transform your warehouse for the future:
Barcodes are expected to be used about 84% of the time in warehouse inventory. This increases the need to upgrade technological solutions in your labeling system. Incorporating technology, such as scanners to go with the labels, can also help your warehouse go green by reducing the amount of paper material needed to conduct an inventory and fill orders.
