As this is my first entry into this forum, please excuse me if this seems like a crazy question. I am looking a being able to track production items and their unique set of production criteria. It has been presented to me that I could use the QR Code to not only track the production of the item as it goes across the production floor, but could also be used to look up the item after it has become part of something bigger. Therefore, the QR Code would somehow become part of the that product like a serial number. An example of this might be part failure and wanting to look at how it was made once it failed.
If someone has a suggestion on another quick scan technology to identify records kept in the database I would really appreciate your input.
