  • Beams
  • Beams of light from a reader take a picture of
    the barcode and reads the relative widths of both

    products and each kind
  • During check out the checkers scan products
    brining up identification of products, removal
    from inventory, and totaling up amount due.

    shipped or purchased they can be scanned to be
    removed from the inventory system.
