Small bar code solves the big problem of warehouse management

traditional warehouse management is result oriented, and the process is often a black hole. Some people even think that the meat is rotten in the pot anyway, as long as things are not lost, the material management process cannot be made clear, and there is no need to make it clear. Therefore, the traditional warehouse management only relies on the memory and manual entry of the warehouse administrator's brain. This practice is not only time-consuming and laborious, but also prone to errors. In case of quality problems downstream, it is unthinkable to find the cause in the pile of paper documents. A company is a typical example. It is a rapidly developing manufacturing enterprise. It has encountered such confusion in warehouse management

manual management leads to increased pressure and risk

a company has more than 3000 kinds of raw materials and 300 kinds of finished products, which are managed by seven warehouse managers in different areas. After receiving materials, the material information is marked with half a piece of A4 paper, and the material card is registered when entering and leaving the warehouse, and the material list is filled in, and then entered into the Excel spreadsheet of the computer

with the expansion of the company and the increase of the number of materials, the pressure and risk of logistics management of company a are increasing, which is mainly reflected in: because the warehouse does not use any warehousing and logistics software, all material records are manually registered with the name, quantity, specification, warehousing date and other information of materials. The workload of manual recording is very large, and the timeliness and accuracy of data completely depend on the work of the warehouse administrator

in addition, the customers of company a basically use barcode, including LianZhan Technology Co., Ltd., which is headquartered in Taiwan, to manage materials, which requires company a to print and paste barcode labels according to the requirements of customers before delivery. Manual recording of data and label printing is not only inefficient, there are hidden dangers of errors, but also a non value-added activity for the company, and has affected customer relationship management to a certain extent

in this case, company a decided to adopt the relationship between fire prevention and thermal insulation in warehouse management. It is necessary to analyze the barcode management in detail, including the following aspects: fully implement barcode automatic management for raw materials, semi-finished products, finished products, etc., manage warehousing, outbound, transfer, warehouse transfer, inventory and other businesses, and improve the management level; Purchase barcode scanning guns and barcode printing equipment, print box labels and various business documents, and improve the efficiency and accuracy of warehousing and other operations; Transform the existing local area, build WLAN, connect the server of bar code management system, computer, bar code scanning gun, printing terminal, etc. through LAN and WLAN, and then import it into ERP system through interface program, so that it can process various tasks in real time

ERP first, then barcode, and step-by-step implementation

the combination of barcode technology and ERP software can truly achieve the timeliness, accuracy and traceability of data collection. In view of the clear business process required for the implementation of barcode, company a decided to implement ERP before barcode after careful consideration. Through the business process optimization and data correction during the implementation of ERP, pave the way for barcode import. On the other hand, in the implementation and use of ERP, a large number of document data entry is required. Automatic barcode recognition and entry replace manual entry, which also provides a strong guarantee for the smooth operation of ERP system

the business scope of barcode application of company a includes:

① main processes: raw material warehousing and outbound, finished product warehousing and outbound

② secondary processes: Production return stock in, purchase return stock out, transfer (transfer between warehouses), transfer (transfer between locations in the warehouse), count, query and statistics

③ subcontracting process: subcontracting and incoming processing

④ semi finished product process: workshop processing records, semi-finished products warehousing, semi-finished products outbound

⑤ supply chain supporting process: establish a supplier platform, company a designs bar code rules, the supplier logs in to the company's supplier platform, prints the bar code label of outbound products, and pastes the bar code label on the outer package or pallet of parts before delivery

a company decided to adopt the implementation strategy of step-by-step implementation, first bar code management of raw materials, then finished product warehouse and semi-finished product warehouse, and finally supply chain supporting. The specific method is:

raw material warehousing: do not disturb the supplier in the early stage. For the incoming materials from the supplier, print the barcode label according to the inspection sheet. The inspector of company a pastes the barcode on the material package or pallet, and then scans and warehousing. The barcode should contain material code, warehousing batch number, quantity, warehousing bin and other information. After the bar code system runs smoothly, company a will send a notice to all suppliers, requiring suppliers to remotely print the bar code labels of raw materials through EDI program and paste them on the outer packaging of products, otherwise the company will not be able to handle warehousing and lead to the increase of payment cycle

warehousing of semi-finished products: according to the production order, when the production line is offline, the production operator prints the barcode label and pastes it on the semi-finished products, and then scans it for warehousing

finished product warehousing: scan the production order and print the finished product barcode label. When a package is full, the barcode label of the packaging box will be automatically printed, and the barcode will be pasted to the designated position of the packaging box, and then scanned for storage

raw material collection and delivery: the collection of raw materials should correspond to the relevant production order from scratch, so as to calculate the production cost and quality prosecution. Therefore, when releasing the workshop Mo, you need to print the production order with barcode. When collecting and issuing, scan the production order to get the bill of materials required by this production order, and then scan and issue. The barcode should contain the production order number, line number, material code, quantity, production department and other information. For over picking, the system should have the right to control this limit and enter the authorization password

finished product delivery: automatically retrieve the delivery list according to the shipping order of the marketing department, and scan the barcode labels of the packaging boxes of the delivered products one by one to ensure that the finished products are first in first out. The barcode should contain the key information required by the customer. Fixed information such as material code is one code segment, and change information such as quantity can be set to another code segment

it is worth pointing out that because the bar code system is integrated with different ERP, its development difficulty and interface program are different. Therefore, considering the economy and maturity of interface development, company a chose a supplier with a complete product line and can provide a package of solutions. Because the integration of its ERP system and bar code system is ready-made, there is no need to find other bar code manufacturers in the market to interface

the effect is reflected in fast, accurate and provincial

in short, the advantages of bar code system are reflected in three words: fast, accurate and provincial. The essence of barcode management is process management. The process is fine and controllable, and the results are naturally correct and effective. Warehouse bar code management has brought great benefits to the logistics management of company a, which are mainly reflected in:

1. Realize material positioning and quantitative management

2. Control the first in first out of raw materials to avoid human errors

3. Strictly implement quota picking and eliminate waste

4. Control inventory data in real time, reasonably maintain and control enterprise inventory, and improve work efficiency and quality

5. Through the automatic collection of material batch information, the traceability of product production process is realized

more importantly, bar code management promotes the transformation of the management mode of company a, from traditional experience management to accurate digital analysis management, from post management to in-process management and real-time management, which accelerates the capital turnover and improves the response speed of the supply chain, which will certainly enhance the overall competitiveness of the company
