Product Codes
A Product code is a unique identifier, assigned to each finished/manufactured product that is ready to be marketed or for sale.

Product Codes make work easier for store and factory employees. Computers are set up to scan and read bar codes on site, so any information employees need can be accessed instantly by scanning. When an item's bar code is scanned, employees may be able to see how many of that particular item is in stock and its location within the store. This information is used to track inventory and make reordering merchandise faster and easier.

Shipping companies such as UPS or Fed-Ex can easily track packages because the bar codes on the packages are scanned at each stop as they transfer from one point to another.

Some applications of a Product Code are:

  • , common bar code used to identify packaged products
  • , a number identifying an item per instance
  • , a number used to verify the authenticity of a software as a license code

Bar codes became more common on products in the 1970s, and in 1974 retailers started installing bar code scanners.

A UPC Code is a method used by manufacturers to identify products quickly. UPC stands for "Universal Product Code." A UPC code generally has two parts - numbers, which people can read, and a series of bars which can be scanned and tracked by computers.

The numbers generally indicate both the manufacturer and the specific product. The UPC Codes for a 6-pack of strawberry yogurt, a single strawberry yogurt, and single blueberry yogurt from the same manufacturer would all be different.

A UPC Code does not carry any price information. When the code is scanned, a store's computer will check that product against the current price stored in its database. This allows stores to set their own prices. UPC Codes can be purchased through intermediaries of .

An EAN-13 bar code (originally European Article Number, but now renamed International Article Number even though the abbreviation

EAN has been retained) is a thirteen digit (twelve data and one check) standard which is a of the original 12-digit (UPC) system developed in the . The EAN-13 bar code is defined by the standards organization .

The EAN-13 bar codes are used worldwide for marking products often sold at retail . The numbers encoded in EAN-13 bar codes are product identification numbers, which are also called ( JAN) in . All the numbers encoded in UPC and EAN bar codes are known as (GTIN), and they can be encoded in other GS1 .

An ISBN is a unique machine-readable identification number, which identifies any book unmistakably. 159 countries and territories are officially ISBN members. However, as with many man-instituted technologies, the system is not perfect; occasionally one will find two or titles with the same ISBN.

QR Code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside the industry due to its fast readability and large storage capacity compared to standard . The code consists of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of four standardized kinds ("modes") of data (numeric, alphanumeric, byte/binary, ), or through supported extensions, virtually any kind of data. A can store up to 4296 characters of alphanumerical data.

The contact format, event format, text message, message, Location, and authentification, and QRCode formats are widely supported on devices capable of reading bar codes.

Tracking Codes
Modern inventory control systems often rely upon barcodes and radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags to provide automatic identification of inventory objects. Inventory objects could include any kind of physical asset: merchandise, consumables, fixed assets, circulating tools, library books, or capital equipment. To record an inventory transaction, the system uses a barcode scanner or RFID reader to automatically identify the inventory object, and then collects additional information from the operators via fixed terminals (workstations), or mobile computers.

The most serious drawback of Code 39 is its low data density: It requires more space to encode data in Code 39 than, for example, in Code 128. This means that very small goods cannot be labeled with a Code 39 based barcode. However, Code 39 is still widely used and can be decoded with virtually any . One advantage of Code 39 is that since there is no need to generate a check digit, it can easily be integrated into existing printing system by adding a barcode font to the system or printer and then printing the raw data in that font.

Code 39
Code 39 is a common barcode type used for various labels such as name badges, inventory and industrial applications. The symbology of the Code 39 character set consists of barcode symbols representing numbers 0-9, upper-case letters A-Z, the space character and the following symbols: - . $ / %. Lower-case characters may also be easily encoded with the extended fonts provided in the IDAutomation Code-39 Font Package. The Code 39 barcode is the easiest of the alpha-numeric barcodes to use and is designed for character self-checking, thus eliminating the need for checksum calculations.

Code 128
Code 128 is a very high-density semiotics. It is used for or numeric-only . It can encode all 128 characters of and, by use of an extension character (FNC4), the Latin-1 characters defined in . (formerly known as UCC/EAN-128) is a subset of Code 128 and is used extensively worldwide in and industries as a product identification code for the container and pallet levels in the supply chain.
