Bar Code Training Workshop for NTUC (3rd Run) on 16 May 2014

"Do you know? Many retailers achieve scan rates over 99%, while 1% of products scan failures cause great costs and disrupt supply chain efficiency.

What causes poor scanning?

Companies face the issue of not able to assign their numbers correctly or use of impropriate symbol size. This knowledge is not being passed on, due to change of staff or lack of understanding. There are printers company or design companies that do not understand the GS1 bar code symbols requirements. All these factors contribute to poor bar code symbols.

What are the dos and don'ts?

What are the common errors to be avoided? Why should you avoid making the same mistakes?

Spot the mistake!

We use common examples and with demonstration of verification test of the bar code symbol to the participants with explanations. We encourage participants to bring their company’s product packaging as part of the sharing session during the workshop.
