Abstract

The commercial applications of NFC (Near Field Communication) have become increasingly mature. Many smartphones have become to carry NFC chip in default for communication. Warehouse management in the logistics industry has played a more and more important role in the current development of the electronic commerce. How to ensure the efficiency of warehousing in the most cost effective way is currently a difficult problem to be resolved. NFC technology application is a suitable solution for the verification module of the Warehouse Management System (WMS). We have designed and implemented the NFC picking verification system, which is mainly consisting of three parts: server, mobile client and tag printing system. Server uses the Spring architecture, and communicates with clients via HTTP protocol. Mobile client is an Android application using NFC technology to achieve verification steps. The tag printing system acquires SKU information from the logistics company and prints it to the NFC tag for verification. The NFC verification module is integrated into the activities of WMS, which can provide a new exploratory research for the commercial application of NFC.
