Bar Coding 101...What You Need to Know (PDF, 429KB)
Manufacturing companies have used bar coding in shipping and receiving operations for more than 30 years. But even in these more traditional settings, bar code applications have spread throughout the enterprise to include warehousing, accounting and customer service functions, time and attendance, and package delivery, as well as the assembly line operation itself. In all of these applications, the motivation to begin bar coding is the same: improve data management and accessibility and reduce costs. This paper introduces the benefits bar coding delivers to business operations and provides an overview of available printing technologies and methods for producing high quality bar code labels.
