Designing a Warehouse with RFID and Firebase Based Android Application

Ms. Tamanna Kamal, Ms. Fabiha Islam, Ms. Mobasshira Zaman


Information sharing is a vital part of a hassle-free supply chain. And this research was about information sharing between the supply chain terminals and automation of the warehouse using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Here input and exit were associated with RFID to count the incoming and outgoing lots of product for keeping track of the inventory status. A firebase database android app was compiled to connect the warehouse with the retailers and manufacturer. The warehouse could manage the orders of the retails and assign orders to the manufacturer and retailers could set orders to warehouse and manufacturer could receive orders from a warehouse. For further simplification warehouse stock information was made exposed to the retailers. The process would pave an apparel concept not only to make the information sharing in the supply chain more simple, spontaneous and uninterrupted but also to rehash the warehouse management easier and accurately performable.
