With the continuous development of retail and logistics, enterprise inventory management has become more and more complex, the traditional management mode can't meet the requirements of modern enterprise inventory management. In the environment of Internet of things, a kind of intelligent warehouse management system based on NFC is studied, which can realize the real time intelligent management of logistics. This paper design the NFC tags to store the warehouse information, freight car information, superior management order, etc., and read it by a smart android mobile terminal which support NFC, then through the communication network to transmit data information, to achieve NFC tag registration, data acquisition, content input, real-time data upload by scanning card, record management, query statistics and analysis report, which is an intelligent warehouse management system. It meets the requirements of modern logistics management, create more economic benefits for the enterprise, and has great realistic significance to promote the economic development of the logistics industry.

1. Introduction

1.1. Background of the Subject

With the development and popularization of information technology, internet technology has made great progress in solving the problems of information sharing, information transmission, information standards and information costs, and information can be widely used as a basis for regulation and decision-making. More and more enterprises have gradually applied the production automation and office automation and some intelligent information storage management system. Because of the rapid development of information technology, information technology has become an important means to determine the market competitiveness of enterprises. Therefore, in order to improve the new requirements of the enterprise inventory management and improve the efficiency of enterprise inventory management, it is necessary to establish a complete enterprise inventory management information system.

In recent years, Internet of things has been a hot research topic at home and abroad since it was put forward. Internet of things technology is highly integrated electronic technology, communication technology, automation technology, biotechnology and so on, so as to realize the development of from the interpersonal communication toward the communication between the people and things, and between things and things. It is generally accepted that the Internet of things is the extension and expansion of the Internet, breaking the boundaries of the physical world and the information world. At present, the Internet of things is widely used in intelligent logistics, transportation, security monitoring, smart home, fire warning, environmental monitoring, energy management, remote health care, greenhouse cultivation, food safety and other fields.

Wireless communication technology has become an important sector of the Internet of things, to change the way of life and behavior of human life in many ways. In particular, the development of short-range wireless communications technology including Bluetooth, 802.11 (Wi-Fi), ZigBee, Infrared Data (IrDa), Ultra-wideband (UWB), Near Field Communications (NFC), has set off a wireless communication revolution. Using wireless communication technology and the Internet of things to build a more intelligent storage management system, improve the overall competitiveness of enterprises and management automation.
