Why shops need barcodes

The number of stripes on the packaging of almost all the goods that are sold in stores have not surprised anyone for a long time. Black and white strokes are a generally accepted in world practice system for marking goods and products, in which the necessary information about the country of origin, the manufacturer and the product itself is encoded. We have already got used to and for a long time have not paid attention to the everyday commodity attribute inherent in almost every product in a modern supermarket and in most any other stores. Passing to the checkout, we see that the cashier scans the packaging of goods with applied stripes and numbers with a special beam device and then gives us a receipt for the cost of the goods.

The stripes are the barcode, and the beaming device is the scanner. It reads the information from the barcode and transmits it to the screen of the cash register. The fact is that in large stores and supermarkets, a list of goods with information about each of them is in the memory of a special computer. To this computer are connected cash registers, which are also specialized computers. At the moment, in order to form a barcode, there are several special symbols or languages, which consist of various combinations of strokes and spaces. The use of a barcode facilitates the work of the cashier and speeds up the settlement time with the customer by about 30%. That is, labor productivity and quality of service increase, which positively affects the store's profits.
