Learning More About Barcodes
Barcodes is as ubiquitous as televisions, since its mass adoption in the early 60s [first notably in the automobile industry] and later in the early 70s for the grocery industry where it became a mainstay.
The idea was coined by Bernard Silver, then graduate student in Philadelphia's Drexel Institute of Technology after overhearing complaints from the president of a now defunct local food chain to solve the need for automatic product information reading devices upon item checkout.
By that time [late 40's], punch cards was still the norm and barcodes have displaced this archiving method.
Barcodes have gone decades of refinement before it even became the barcode used by almost every store around the world today. First it went under the automobile manufacturing industry where manufacturers have taken advantage of the system to easily identify cars and batch, allowing greater access to repair and faster production.
Barcodes of yesteryears relied on bulkier readers and even bulkier computer systems that can do minimal tasks such as calculations. Today, barcode punch and readers now come in all forms and sizes, can be purchased anywhere and are as light as common water bottles.
SDR's free barcode generator makes it all the while easier and beneficial even for small time owners.
Barcodes are now the standard in groceries and it's shown no slowing down or threats of being fully replaced anytime soon so making use of it even small stores that produce their own goods can help in the more organized filekeeping and inventory and faster processing of consumer purchases.
