ABSTRACT

In the early years, the use of humans and paper work in tracking distribution of goods was a norm but there was a gap in the chain process. The manual method or intervention is labour intensive, costly, and error prone and cannot ensure the inventory remains up-to-date due to oversight and internal shrinkage. Hence the need to replace human workers with technology in certain key areas to ensure productivity and profit. 

This project negates the manual method and highlights the processes involved in the design and implementation of an inventory management system for a warehouse. The core concept of this project is to manage the supply chain, distribution and sale of items from cash registers with additional features for data interpretation.

The project outlines the main concepts of the analysis and design methodology of the system, compares it to the existing and goes further to explain the design and implementation of the system using recent and modern web technologies.
