With the increasing demand of developing economies and the promotion and popularization of new energy vehicles, global automotive production capacity is increasing every year, and China has also become the world's largest automobile consumer. In particular, the continuous increase in the production capacity of automobile OEMs in recent years has also promoted the increase in the production capacity of auto parts. But at the same time, the complaint rate in the automotive industry has also been increasing, and multi-brand recall incidents that have occurred frequently in recent years are also common ⎝⎛新宝1娱乐⎞⎠papers. It can be seen that the existing management methods of auto parts can no longer meet the needs of industry development, and enterprises need to find more effective management and control methods. Effective management and control of auto parts is an important part of improving the quality management of parts and components, as well as an important part of the automotive industry ecosystem.
Recently, Iteratelun signed a cooperation agreement with a German auto parts supplier to use RFID technology to effectively manage and monitor its parts warehouse. The project is currently in progress. Italitron RF Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. was established in 2000. It is a high-tech enterprise dedicated to providing enterprises with professional business management platforms, intelligent RFID system solutions, and intelligent loss prevention. With RFID and EAS technology as its core, the company has expanded its business from retail to automotive logistics. Utilizing innovative and intelligent technologies, through effective data analysis of cloud platform management systems, it helps enterprises realize intelligent full-chain management and the transformation of new retail models. The company has provided professional services to thousands of well-known brands at home and abroad, mainly covering consulting, design, research and development, implementation, operation and maintenance and training.
This cooperation with the German auto parts supplier is an application of Iterative's RFID technology in the intelligent storage management of automobiles. From the storage, inventory, distribution, picking, inventory, transfer, outbound, and OEM warehouse storage of auto parts and components, the RFID component management system collects effective data through RFID hardware equipment and tags, with the help of Italitron The cloud platform that integrates, optimizes, and analyzes data can automatically identify and obtain accurate data information of components at each link, ensuring the efficient and accurate operation of the component warehouse.
Traditionally, auto parts management methods are relatively extensive, high inventory costs, coupled with the biased flow of parts, and unreasonable parts management can easily cause inventory redundancy, which greatly hinders the rationality of parts and components of enterprises. Procurement and management are not conducive to the sustainable development of the enterprise.
After the deployment of the RFID system, the warehouse management of auto parts companies can use RFID technology to track in real time a series of parts such as the warehouse entry, exit, inventory consolidation, distribution, and transfer to the OEM warehouse. In addition, the warehouse environment is complex and there are many types of parts and components, which is also a great challenge for warehouse management. The RFID technology with long-distance reading and high storage capacity is very suitable for application in storage operations. The RFID tag's anti-pollution ability and durability are also stronger than barcodes. The data collected by the RFID device is stored in the chip, which is not only protected from contamination, but also repeatedly added, modified, and deleted, which facilitates the instant update of information. Coupled with the strong penetrability of RFID signals, when covered, it can still penetrate non-metallic or non-transparent materials such as paper, wood and plastic, and it can perform penetrating real-time communication.
RFID technology has a wide range of applications. Its unique advantages can help companies track cargo information in real time, realize informationization and data management, and through effective data support, thereby reducing operating costs and improving the efficiency of operations in each link.
