1 ΟΙΚΟΝΟΜΙΚΟ ΠΑΝΕΠΙΣΤΗΜΙΟ ΑΘΗΝΩΝ ΤΜΗΜΑ ΔΙΟΙΚΗΤΙΚΗΣ ΕΠΙΣΤΗΜΗΣ ΚΑΙ ΤΕΧΝΟΛΟΓΙΑΣ Angeliki Karagiannaki SmartRFID Unit of the ELTRUN E-Business Research Center Empowering Distribution Center operations with RFID

2 The Diakinisis Case •Diakinisis- a 3PL operator Company •Distribution Sector •2008 Year •Passive UHF RFID Format •Storage and Shipment Application •Alien Technology Tag/Reader Supplier •Business Effectiveness System Integrator •Roll-out Status •Pallet Labeling •Greece Country

3 Inefficiencies before RFID • Time –consuming and unreliable stock taking • Remarkable variances between accounting and physical stocks • Overstated or understated inventory levels • Difficulty in locating the pallets on storage racks during order assembly • Mistakes during loading • Product obsolescence due to overstocked inventory. • No establishment of unforgiving rules for pallet storage

5 RFID-enabled processes StoragePickingShippingInventory Physical Count

6 RFID-enabled Storage Process 1. Attach RFID labels on pallets Link Pallet Barcodes with Pallet RFID Label – Update WMS 3. Forklift Truck reach Pallet RFID Label 4. The Storage Location is shown on the terminal via WMS 5. Reading of Storage Rack RFID Label – Confirmation of correct storage location

7 RFID-enabled Full Pallets Picking 1. FLT Driver reads on the terminal Pallets & Location to retrieve 3. Pallet pickup 2. Confirmation of correct Pallet pickup Επιβεβαίωση Εξαγωγής Παλέτας 4. Automatic Loading Control (Correct pallet, carrier, order) ORDE R 3 ΟΚ

8 RFID-enabled Shipping Process ORDE R 3 ΟΚ 2. Automatic Loading Control (Pallet, carrier, order) – Loading 1. Move assembled orders to the loading area

9 RFID-enabled Inventory Physical Count Stock Taking by moving properly equipped FLT through the aisles

10 Remarkable Benefits • Achieved near 100% pallet traceability of pallets through the distribution center • Improved correct storage location of pallets by more than 25% • Expedited stock taking improved by 40% • Faster pallets movement by 30% – The FLT operator completes pallet storage and retrieval on his driver’s seat – no need to get off for pallet – rack scanning etc • 80% reduction in shipment errors • Overall process improvement of 20%

11 An interesting outcome of the Diakinisis Case • Alternative RFID implementations – Numerous possible ways of implementing RFID within an warehouse processes 11 NEW Process (RFID LABELING) Process C (Picking) Process D (Shipping) Process B (Storage) Process A (Receiving) …is not supported by RFID… RFID IMPLEMENTATION of DIAKINISIS CASE SHIPPINGRECEIVING AN ALTERNATIVE RFID IMPLEMENTATION STORAGEORDER PICKING …is not supported by RFID… • RFID process redesign problem • Different implementation  different value of RFID • no clear cut answer as to which RFID implementation is the best – IT IS IMPORTANT TO – design differently configured to-be implementations and – decide on a specific one based on a credible evaluation of the alternatives

12 A generic warehouse simulation model • Video (SIMUL8 software)

13 Simulation Results 13 DIAKINISIS CASE Implementation 2 Implementation 3 As-is Implementation 4 Implementation 5 Implementation 6 Implementation7 Implementation 8
