  • How does a Barcode work
  • Where you may find a Barcode
  • How a firm may use Barcodes
  • Summary

3
What is a Barcode
  • Like License Plates
  • Identifies an item by the numbers and/or letters
    stored in the barcode, once read a vast amount of
    information can be stored and related to a
    product.
  • 300 different types
  • Different schemes of bars and spaces are arranged
    for coding data.

4
Uses Of Barcodes
  • Products
  • Consumer products such as magazines, food
    products, etc.
  • Services
  • Gyms and facilities which track attendance.

5
How do barcodes work
  • Identifier
  • This allows a computer to search for information
    about a product from a numerical or alphabetical
    code.
  • Beams
  • Beams of light from a reader take a picture of
    the barcode and reads the relative widths of both
    the bars and the spaces, giving each code a
    unique identifier

6
Where you may find barcodes
  • Grocery Stores
  • Recreation Clubs
  • Ski Resorts
  • Manufacturing companies
  • FedEx UPS
  • Retail Stores

7
How they may be used
  • Grocery Stores
  • During stocking of shelves entering the number of
    products and each kind
  • During check out the checkers scan products
    brining up identification of products, removal
    from inventory, and totaling up amount due.

8
How they may be used cont.
  • A Gym or Recreation Club
  • These business will use barcodes for the club
    members passes.
  • As a user of the club enters the facility they
    will run their card through a scanner.
  • Once this is scanned the members information will
    be brought up
  • Picture, billing, dates of sign-up, and maybe
    work-out programs.

9
How they may be used cont.
  • Ski Resorts
  • Some resorts track a skiers vertical feet
  • By using scanners a lift operator can scan a
    skiers pass with a beam. This will then be
    entered into a database for tracking
  • Season pass verification
  • Similar to how Recreational clubs, these resorts
    can use barcodes on the back of passes to measure
    attendance.

10
How the may be used cont.
  • Manufacturing company
  • Serial numbers may be assigned to each individual
    product.
  • Once produced these product will be entered into
    Finished Goods Inventory (FGI) by scanning them
    in to a software program.
  • When these products are taken out of FGI and
    shipped or purchased they can be scanned to be
    removed from the inventory system.

11
How the may be used cont.
  • FedEx UPS
  • These companies rely on timeliness and accuracy.
    Scanning each package throughout its journey
    helps to ensure a packages delivery.
  • Barcodes on packages contain destination, weight
    or dimensional weight, time of departure and
    location, cost, and type of service

12
How the may be used cont.
  • Retail Stores
  • Used during the inventory of clothing and
    apparel, or other consumer goods.
  • Also used during check-out, the use of barcodes
    will automatically deduct from inventory as items
    are purchased.

Summary
  • Benefits of barcodes
  • Speed
  • Efficiency
  • Accuracy
