In the era of Industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence, how can the supply chain become smarter step by step? I still want to share a process for you. The industrial intelligence technology of artificial intelligence is imported into the supply chain. This is the key point I want to share with you.
First of all, the RFID sensor on the car has the ability to communicate. With the RFID reading and writing process, the position of a car can be located. This is the vehicle identification technology.
In the second phase, by connecting the Internet technology to the vehicle and using GPS technology, the location of the vehicle can be confirmed in real time, the vehicle can be tracked, and the positioning of the vehicle becomes real-time. If the goods are RFID-added and transmitted over a wireless network, the car and the goods can be combined to know where the goods are in real time.
If you add an electronic seal and a smart card, you will have a smart train. In fact, we can know the current situation of the vehicle and the cargo, and know in real time. Such as the cold chain, which can be used a temperature recorder. The temperature inside the cold chain process may change. Now if the temperature changes in real time, it will tell you the situation, so we record the real-time tracking of vehicles and goods.
If you put more software analysis capabilities, smart card stuff, and software for the supply chain project, you can feedback and reflect the status of the vehicle and cargo in real time. When something goes wrong, for example, if the temperature rises, the system will tell the vehicle to cool down. Any situation of the vehicle can rise to the level of supply chain event management. Due to the intelligent improvement, we can manage the supply chain events.
In the next stage, real-time feedback can be made within the entire network and within the entire supply chain by applying the Internet of Things and the Internet to a wider range of applications. This is the smart supply chain.
