Paper Abstract

The problem. often, arises in production processes of identifying work-pieces by means of an identification number or other alpha-numerical symbols, for the purpose, for instance - of control of a multiple-branched material flow, - of supervision of progress in manufacture, - of individual work-piece-specific storage of quality data in a quality monitoring system. Various systems can be used for this purpose. One can make use of traditional methods, using cards which indicate work orders and further informations. On the other hand, mechanical codes or microwave-based information-units can be affixed to the transportation system (e.g. pallet) for the purpose of automatic identification. Bar codes nowadays have a dominant position in the field of encoding of information in automated material-flow and manufacturing systems.
