Supply chains have become a key player to any business activity that revolves around serving of goods to customers. The poultry sector is no stranger to the applications of supply chains and its impact in delivering value when done right. Technology has been a major driving force in the advancement of supply chains in relation to the building of supply chain management software for private companies looking to enhance their supply chains. The objective of this project is to develop a mobile application that can be used by poultry farmers to manage their supply chain activities This project focuses on building a forward supply chain management software using agile techniques to software development. The key users that the software is intended for are the farmers and distributors. The farmer to distributor relationship is modelled in the application with the aim of helping farmers better manage the supply of their goods and services to distributors. Ordering modules were implemented in the software to help automate the process of booking farm orders from distributors to farmers. Stock inventory modules are also implemented in the system for better collection and storage of farm data on the cloud. In conclusion, the implemented software is capable of automating key farm activities that farmers rely on so as to better enhance their supply chain. For future work it is recommended that other researchers build upon the results of this project to develop software that can account for reverse chain activities that go on in the poultry supply chain such as return of farm goods.
