Barcode technology’s advantages
Barcode is by far the most economical and practical automatic identification technology. Barcode technology has the following advantages
A. Input speed: bar code input speed is 5 times the keyboard input, and can achieve "real-time data input" compared to the keyboard input.
B. High reliability: keyboard input data error rate of one-third, the use of optical character recognition technology error rate of one ten thousandth, and the use of bar code technology error rate of less than one millionth.
C. Collecting large amount of information: the use of traditional one-dimensional bar code can collect tens of characters of information, two-dimensional bar code can carry thousands of characters of information, and a certain degree of automatic error correction.
D. Flexible and practical: bar code identification can be used as a means of identification alone, can also be associated with the identification of equipment to achieve a system to achieve automatic identification, but also can be connected with other control devices to achieve automated management.
In addition, bar code labels are easy to make, there is no special requirement for equipment and materials. The identification equipment is easy to operate, does not require special training, and the equipment is relatively cheap.
E. Cost is very low In the retail sector, because the bar code is printed on the packaging of goods, so the cost is almost 'zero'.
