Solutions brought by Barcode
One of the biggest problems encountered in warehouse management is that the locations of the materials entered/exited cannot be accurately entered into the system.
Materials subjected to assembly, separation (handling) and shelving in the warehouse can be placed in different locations or in different places in the same location due to space constraints. As entry and exit transactions increase, mistakes may be made due to operator or warehouseman error/forgetfulness. These errors, which can be noticed late, can lead to overstock because the material related to the sequence path is thought to be out of stock, and can lead to work delays because it is thought to be in stock.
Thanks to BarCode applications, delays and errors are minimized. This also provides economy in terms of labor.
