White Paper : How Barcodes Work

Since their introduction in the 1940s, barcodes and other traceability technologies have proliferated to the point that they are attached to almost every product. While most people only associate barcodes with the products that they buy in retail settings, these interesting and overlooked graphics are a critical part of the product development cycle. But not every barcode style contains the same information.

In fact, there are a number of barcode types available to engineers and designers and each of them have the ability to carry different types of information that can help aid your efforts to streamline your product design and production strategy. So, how do you pick the right barcode style for your product design scheme? In this white paper, you’ll learn all that you need to know about barcodes and traceability.

What You’ll Learn:
  • About the various types of barcodes and how they differ
  • What the GS1 standards is and why its important for traceability
  • How to choose what barcode type is appropriate for your traceability needs
