Industries & Applications
The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) founded the Bar Coding Project Team in 1981 to develop automotive industry standards for bar codes. Ever since then, bar codes have been instrumental in the supply chain standards for the industry. In 1984, AIAG adopts the Code 39 alphanumeric symbology and publishes the first industry-wide bar code standards: Bar Code Symbology (B-1) and Shipping/Parts Identification Label (B-3).
Since the initial founding of the Bar Coding Project Team, other guidelines for suppliers to the automotive industry have been created. These include industry-wide and company specific initiatives. A few of the the industry standards are listed below.

This is a 2D Direct Parts Marking Guideline for the automotive industry. Webscan was an instrumental contributor to the development of this document. The guideline uses AIM DPM standards for verifying the quality of the bar code. The TruCheck 2D USB DPM verifier is ideal for this application.
