The hottest new era of supply chain cooperation

The new era of supply chain cooperation

EPC was initially centered on North America. In the proposal issued by EPC, there were conflicts with other parts of the world in terms of frequency, hardware, etc. Ssaglobal, like other manufacturers, is looking forward to the application of the second generation standards for manufacturers as soon as possible, and needs to fully support ISO standard processes and global RFID standards

at present, due to time constraints, many suppliers must comply with RFID standards, and some of them have adopted independent solutions to apply RFID. In our view, this response has a strategic disadvantage, because some key procedures are still manually operated, which increases labor costs, error rates and integration costs. A fully integrated enterprise RFID solution can still achieve a smooth and optimized RFID process based on multiple enterprise application systems. It can avoid the problems caused by the independent application of RFID. A fully integrated and packaged RFID solution is the way to deal with it

rfid technology is of great use in the supply chain, including production, storage and transportation. RFID can be used separately in each field, but the benefits are beyond this field. For example, it can be used to track raw materials in the production process, realize smooth warehousing and outbound in the warehousing application, and track products on the way in the transportation application. For its application installed on a fixed horizontal substrate in the whole enterprise, RFID information can be shared across departments at the enterprise level, and the process can be optimized from the perspective of the enterprise level. Enterprise level data sharing and decision-making is also an important part of RFID application prospects

at present, the application of RFID technology is relatively slow for many reasons, including the cost of RFID tags and infrastructure. Now the suppliers bear this part of the cost, so we have achieved this. Their internal costs are relatively high. However, with the development of technology and the increase of supply, the cost of RFID tags will decline, and the cost related to RFID will mainly be the cost of system integration. The integration of enterprise supply chain management system is very complex, but in order to give full play to the advantages of RFID, integration is also very important

rfid drives the natural process of business process evolution of enterprises. RFID technology plays an important role in helping to improve the inefficiency of the current process. We hope the business process will change, but drastic changes are not suitable. The most efficient enterprises will be those that seamlessly integrate RFID, RF, voice applications and other technologies

on Oracle's large management platform and supply chain, the main thing to do is to integrate logistics. It is expected that the company's market will continue to grow in 2014 The company said that the circulation information was fed back to the circulation of information flow in a timely manner. The so-called supply chain management is to use information flow to manage logistics. In this process, for the circulation of large goods, in other words, the links with large flow or flow rate of supply chain logistics need information flow to directly reflect or directly control logistics as soon as possible. The original barcode has one-dimensional, two-dimensional, and later radio-frequency, non-contact, which can carry out rapid information flow without manual intervention. Its application is basically related to logistics flow, such as the entry and exit of warehouses, and the transfer link of transfer stations in logistics. RFID updates the link of logistics flow to the link of information flow. Barcode requires manual intervention. If the circulation volume is large, the intervention volume will be large, which may cause a bottleneck. RFID enables this link to realize automatic data collection. Its impact on the supply chain is to eliminate this bottleneck, improve the efficiency of the supply chain, and the impact is huge. The production of benefits depends on a large flow. For example, Wal Mart has a large demand for the circulation of goods, and its material flow is large, so the investment is most likely to be returned. If a small enterprise also uses this system, it is likely to get no return

at present, RFID may bring profit margins to integrators. Software vendors set up additional modules required by different software according to different standards. For Oracle, there is a middleware for RFID in Yucheng to build a 10 billion level new material industry cluster in the database. There is a three-dimensional warehouse management module in ERP, which has a plug-in. RFID middleware can be directly inserted into this module. If the customer's warehouse has related file systems, they can also be put together, For Oracle, its change is to add two modules, but it is not simply two modules. It is to change according to the standard, and the new version will be updated immediately. At the same time, the generation of these two modules is also dynamic. For example, once the Wal Mart business model is really stable, it will certainly have some standard changes in its promotion, including the evolution of EPC. From my point of view, the profits brought by RFID are far less than expected in the current Chinese market. Many Chinese enterprises do not need so much business flow, and this lag from the United States to China may take a year or two
