The Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Booklet is intended as a sample set of SOPs needed to support the design, development, and deployment of barcode data collection systems that provide real-time data capture in active warehouse management operations, and which support GS1 standards. These SOPs focus primarily on using barcode labels applied by manufacturers in alignment with GS1 standards in response to commercial trends, regulatory mandates, and/or procurement requirements. While this Booklet mainly speaks to existing GS1-standardized barcodes for AIDC functions, it also includes scenario-based guidance for instances when the manufacturer has not applied GS1-standardized labeling and how those exceptions may be managed. This Booklet provides five examples of SOPs that represent core warehouse management functions, including: Purchase Order (PO) Receiving; Putaway Receipts; Change Inventory Part Location; Order Shipments; Physical Inventory.
