With certain consumer goods manufacturers must have a number of systems in place so that they can provide a trail of information that goes through the supply chain for each item. This allows insurance for product safety in the case of a recall, so the producers can act quickly, efficiently and locate items that may be faulty that could cause or pose a hazard to their consumers. In order to achieve this a lot of companies are now implementing 2-D barcodes, vision systems and image–based ID readers as crucial components in a traceability solution. As a standard, Data Matrix has been adopted into many applications as it allows more storage, such as Product ID, Manufacturer, Expiry, etc.
