Current board tracking processes utilize a barcode printed on a label. The current barcode proc- ess, utilizing fixed laser scanners is operating at 3.690. Another problem associated with this proc- ess is the maintenance of the barcode label printer, and the waste it generates. Because the barcode applied to the printed circuit board is not the same barcode that is applied to the final product housing, a database must be maintained that correlates the two barcodes so production data will be available for field return units.
