ANALYSIS OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM FOR DIRECTLY MARKED PARTS - DATAMATRIX CODE
PRODUCTION ENGINEERING ARCHIVES 23(2019), pp. 22-26
A photocode in Polish is a common name for a two-dimensional code, which is character-ized by higher information capacity than a traditional barcode. The paper analyses the use of the two-dimensional coding system - DataMatrix to identify and classify the mate-rial stream in the production process. The analysis showed the effectiveness of the imple-mentation of the coding system in the context of increased availability, machine use and increased product quality. The improvement in the production process is confirmed by an increase in the OEE index. As part of further improvement measures, the coding system should be implemented throughout the enterprise, its compatibility with existing systems should be ensured and applied to all products.
