The system may also be updated dynamically, as desired, while it is in use. The methodology involves utilization of bar codes to determine item identity, and the use of separate bar codes to determine locations. These separate bar codes are physically located on location structure, e.g. on aisle ends, shelf edges, bin walls, parking spaces, etc, or on products themselves. This location data is read in conjunction with item identification data by bar code readers, fed to a processor in a recognizable combined format, and then stored and used as the resource data of the locator system. also from iVoice
