Streamline Shipping and Receiving
Shipping labels utilise 2D barcodes that contain more information and enable better data accuracy. As an example, PDF417 can incorporate many data points including the part number, plant location, lot number, weight, pack date, revision and quantity. Shipping labels may also use a mix of both 1D and 2D barcodes.
Boost Pick and Pack Accuracy
Scan the 1D and 2D barcodes on shelf labels, product labels and other barcoded labels to pick, pack and ship orders. 2D codes can offer a smaller footprint than 1D codes and may contain more information enabling better data accuracy.
Track Production with WIP
Barcodes placed on partially manufactured goods allow tracking of all materials and partially finished products at various stages of the production process. WIP excludes inventory of raw materials at the start of the production cycle and finished products inventory at the end of the cycle.
Component Track and Trace
Components tagged with a 2D barcode can be identified throughout the manufacturing process.
