THE ORIGIN OF THE BAR CODEThe inuention of this system is credited to Joseph Woodland. He became obsessed with the idea which his friend BernardSiluer shared with him that he euen dropped out of school to concentrate on creating a uiable product.z i j I The idea came to Woodland from his friend,Bernard Siluer,who ouerheard a supermarket executiue's wish of hauing an automatic system for capturing productinformation. He later came up with the idea of using Morse Code on a piece of paper.But instead of using dots and dashes,he extended the dots and dashes to form a series of broad and thin lines. Woodland and Siluer later also deueloped a scanner that can read the broad and thin lines and the barcode was born. WAYS THE BARCODE IS CHANGING THE WORLD Maintaining inuentories became easierVery small businesses can probably suruiue by simply keeping a list of all of products.Any supermaiket needs to keeptrack of thousands of brands and stock keeping units aka SKUs.
