RFID technology, jewelry from the "chip" began 2017-09-26
In recent years, with the rapid economic development, people's life is not only the pursuit of food and clothing problems, but also pay more attention to enjoy, the pursuit of fashion, the whole family invariably have purchased jewelry and other fine jewelry, so the rapid development of domestic jewelry industry, All the jewelers are smiling face, but also increasingly fierce competition in the domestic jewelry industry has formed a severe challenge and pressure, jewelry retailers have staged "Gong scheming", trying to defeat the competitors, their jewelry assets from the procurement, storage, Sales, inventory and other supply chain tracking and information feedback more and more attention, but the traditional jewelry tracking mode is clearly unable to meet this demand, so only the new technology can solve their worries, so we will focus on the characteristics of China's jewelry industry, The Application of RFID Technology in Jewelery Supply Chain.
Jewelry retail supply chain past history
Jewelry industry, is a fashion, art, investment in one of the industry, jewelry is its unique natural properties, scarce properties, collection properties, decorative properties and investment value of the political characteristics of the industry become an indispensable part of the fashion industry, Is a blingbling luminous pearl in the manufacturing and retail industry.
Jewelry retail enterprises, generally based on the trend of the direction and sales of stores, analysis of the demand for jewelry, and then the information passed to the designer, designed by the designer style, and then orders to the factory for production. Traditional jewelry retail industry, many are used to join the agent sales model, the product needs to go through the purchase of raw materials, brand design, processing production production, franchisee distribution and other sectors, and finally reach the hands of consumers.
Then the problem comes, the traditional jewelry retail industry mainly use line sales, the lack of understanding of customer information, can not accurately capture customer needs, provide personalized services, product homogeneity serious, only based on the limited style shown Jewelry and passive marketing; and in the traditional jewelry logistics management, usually using bar code technology, although this technology can improve the efficiency of logistics management, but still can not meet the needs of modern jewelry industry; bar code storage information is low, Information can not be added, easy to break, read the location requirements of the higher problems gradually manifested. The traditional jewelry retail industry is facing so many problems, how should we solve it?
The Principle and Practical Application of RFID Technology
Radio frequency identification, RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) technology, is a communication technology, commonly known as electronic tags. The specific target can be identified by radio signals and the relevant data can be read and written without the need to establish mechanical or optical contact between the system and the specific target. The radio signal is transmitted from the label attached to the item by adjusting the electromagnetic field into the radio frequency to automatically identify and track the item. In recent years, RFID technology has been in the logistics, retail, manufacturing, clothing, medical, identification, security, asset management, food, animal identification, library, automotive, aviation, military and other fields began to apply, to improve people's Quality of life, improve the economic efficiency of enterprises, strengthen public safety and improve the level of social information has had an important impact. China has applied RFID technology to railway vehicle number identification, identity card and ticket management, animal identification, special equipment and dangerous goods management, public transportation and production process management and other fields.
The Application of RFID Technology in Jewelery - Taking IGC as an Example
IGC is a wholesaler of jewelery that installed RFID systems in 2013. After using RFID technology, the company can be a valuable tracking of valuable jewelry, greatly improving the efficiency of inventory inventory and faster and better know the actual situation of goods. So how does it apply specifically?
First, IGC will attach a passive 13.56 high-frequency RFID tag to every jewel and bare diamond envelope. When the diamond jewelry arrives at the supplier's hand, the IGC will attach a diamond label to the diamond envelope and enter the data into a specific software and label the ID number. The software will then update the product information. When a discrepancy is found, the software will immediately warn you. When a new item is received, the employee will ship the goods to the repository. Upon receipt of a retail order, the jewelery and diamonds are removed from the repository, and the employee is recorded and placed in the box with a hand-held reader. If jewelry and diamonds need processing, IGC employees in their respective stations for processing. At the end of the day, the unprocessed items need to be placed in the box on the station. The responsible person can confirm that the item has been lost by reading the product label ID in the box. When the goods delivered to the customer's hands, the staff will read the goods label to create invoice statements and consignment memorandum. When the retailer returns, the IGC needs to follow a certain process to confirm that the item has not been changed.
Second, in the sales phase, IGC's sales store will be placed in the RFID mat that is smart to see the pallets, in this mat, there will be an embedded RFID reader antenna connected with the reader. When the seller sells the RFID tagged jewel on the pallet, the pallets can read the jewelry label, the software will read the ID code, and then it will be forwarded to the backend system, the system will be carried out Corresponding operation. Such as the number of jewelry on the watch to see the number of calculations, etc., the management can refer to the data on the type of jewelry to adjust. In the cashier, when the jewelry is sold, the jewelry will be placed on the same mat on the antenna, the product label ID will be read, will be forwarded to the back of the system, the back-end system will display The goods have been sold, employees also need to attach the label on the jewelry removed.
RFID systems save bar code scanning time, but also improve the lean. Using this RFID system, employees only need to read the label and check to confirm the availability of the product. RFID systems can be used not only to confirm the loss of goods, but also to meet the needs of the order to reduce inventory. In addition, with RFID, enterprises can collect the data, to provide the basis for decision-making.

Similarities and Differences between RFID Technology and Traditional Bar Code
Traditional jewelry retail industry for jewelry tracking system are built on the traditional bar code applications, with the development of science and technology, many companies are from bar code to RFID radio frequency identification technology changes, then, whether the traditional bar code and RFID technology What is the difference between the following? We are here to explore the following differences between them!
First of all, RFID radio frequency identification technology and the traditional bar code can be bar code recognition (bar code scanning), can quickly and accurately confirm the final target object. However, RFID radio frequency identification technology than the traditional bar code more advantages, why do we say? We decrypt from the following aspects:
1. The traditional bar code, the transmission process mainly depends on the image-related optical signal, the terminal is through the photoelectric conversion device to obtain digital electrical signals
2.RFID in the course of work, rely on radio frequency transmission is the electromagnetic signal, the terminal is identified by the RF conversion to the baseband digital electric signal;
3. Quick scan. The RFID reader can simultaneously read and read multiple RFID tags, while the barcode can only have one barcode scanned at a time.
4. Small size and shape diversification. RFID is not limited by the size and shape of the read information, so it is not necessary to match the fixed size and print quality of the paper for reading accuracy. In addition, RFID tags are more portable and diversified in order to be used in different products.
5. Anti-pollution ability and durability. The traditional bar code carrier is paper and is therefore susceptible to contamination, but RFID is highly resistant to water, oil and chemicals. In addition, because the bar code is attached to the plastic bag or packaging cartons, it is particularly vulnerable to damage; RFID tag is the data stored in the chip, it can be free from fouling.
6. Reusable. Today's bar code printing can not be changed after the change, RFID tags can be repeated to add, modify, delete the RFID tag stored in the data to facilitate the update of information.
7. Penetration and barrier-free reading. In the case of coverage, RFID can penetrate non-metallic or non-transparent materials such as paper, wood and plastic, and be able to communicate with each other. And the bar code scanner must be in close proximity and no object to block the case, can only identify the bar code.
8. The memory capacity of the data is large. One-dimensional bar code capacity is 50Bytes, two-dimensional bar code maximum capacity can be stored 2 to 3000 characters, RFID maximum capacity is the number of MegaBytes. With the development of memory carrier, data capacity has also been expanding trend. The amount of information required for future items will be increased, the volume can be expanded capacity.
9. Security. Because RFID is carrying electronic information, its data content can be password protected, so that its content is not easy to be forged and altered.
In recent years, RFID because of its long-distance read, high storage capacity and other characteristics of high-profile. It can not only help a business to significantly improve the efficiency of goods, information management, but also allows sales companies and manufacturing enterprises to interconnect, so as to more accurately receive feedback, control demand information, optimize the entire supply chain.
The Impact of RFID Technology on Jewelry Supply Chain
There is no doubt that when the jewelry and RFID after the marriage, the supply chain upstream and downstream are influential, the efficiency of the supply chain because of radio frequency identification technology in the application of jewelry has been improved.
What can a jewelry retailer get after a technological change?
1 Accurate management of sales data
Among them, the most direct impact is the impact of offline sales stores. In the traditional sales of jewelry stores, sales staff often one by one to introduce customers to the jewelry information, stores can only record the jewelry has been sold out of the data. And the use of RFID technology to support the smart look at the pallets, the store will be able to record the information of each jewelry inquiry, the customer can see the jewelry from the jewelry to see the material, size, price, seen by other customers , This may be the impact of the purchase of customers, after all, she did not want to buy a ring or necklace with others with the same paragraph! Then these data will be transmitted to the store backstage terminal, so store the data obtained more detailed and accurate sales staff Will be for these data to the customer recommended the corresponding jewelry, to vote customers are good.
2 Optimize inventory management
Like jewelry this high value of goods, the cost of inventory is very high. But with the RFID technology, the boss do not have to worry! As the store sales of jewelry will have their own exclusive bar code, like having their own identity card, so once the jewelry sold out, the background data will be updated, the latest Inventory data will be updated, so that stores can consider implementing VMI, the data with the supplier to share. In addition, the use of RFID technology, the use of intelligent inventory can greatly reduce the inventory time, and can reduce the number of inventory staff, it can greatly reduce the cost of inventory, thereby increasing profit margins.
3 to reduce the bullwhip effect
Bullwhip effect is simply I just want a candy, the results after layers of transmission, to the most upstream suppliers where my needs become 100 candies, which is really a bit exaggerated. If the jewelry store owner through the VMI under the RFID technology on the real-time sharing of inventory data, you can reduce the bullwhip effect on the supply chain, because the real consumer demand data has been passed through the layers of RFID monitoring, Data sharing. Distributors can clearly understand the real needs of customers, so they can provide real demand to upstream manufacturers, so that from the beginning of the supply chain to truly grasp the market data, manufacturers and thus can be based on real needs for lean production. This can maximize the value of the supply chain.
4 security issues
Of course, RFID and jewelry marriage is not so perfect, the total may experience "seven years itch" "third party destruction" of this problem. Why is it so? Because the confidentiality of the use of RFID technology is difficult to guarantee, because the destroyer - no security mechanism of the RF tag will send a signal to the nearby reader, resulting in leakage of information; Second, the RFID tag may also be Another saboteurs - lawless elements to hide the data, so that readers can not scan to the code, which unauthorized transfer of goods, this eyebrows so that staff mistakenly think that goods are still on the shelves, can not escape the boss blame it!
RFID technology in-depth penetration of jewelry assets from the storage, in the sales, inventory, sold and other key nodes, combined with computer and network technology, jewelry assets to achieve the information, precision and efficient management of jewelry supply chain management To a large extent to improve the temporary solution to the jewelry retailer's troubles, but RFID technology in the application is still flawed, need to be improved, such as whether it is safe? It will violate the privacy of consumers? These need to be elegant , But with the continuous improvement of technology, RFID products will be more and more rich, and continue to meet people's needs, we will look forward to RFID technology in the jewelry supply chain or other industry supply chain play a greater role.
