Project Proposal of Online Inventory Management System Project

Project Proposal of Online Inventory Management System Project

Introduction:

The online inventory management system is a web-based system for COMPANIES, ORGANIZATIONS OR UNIVERSITIES which will provide a simple and easy user interface to operate, which can be managed by any user without having prior in-depth knowledge of the computer system. The system will allow to managing university assets inventories I-e all Consumable and non-consumable information also perform procurement activities, in a very simple way, using a state-of-the-art software application.

Consumable assets :

Items which “get used up” or discarded. For example, consumable office supplies are such products as paper, pens

Non-consumable assets :

That item which is reusable. For example a  chair, table etc.

Procure ment assets :

It is the act of finding, acquiring, buying goods, services or works from an external source.

Background:

In the past, there are many kind of online inventory management system which has been developed. This idea can be understood by reading many articles like:

  • Online Inventory Management System[2]
  • Design and Development of an Online Assets Inventory Management System (AIMS)[1]
  • Web-Based Inventory Management System for the West Virginia State Police[4]

Problem Statement:

The manual system employed by organizations involve the physical movement of their audit staff from office to office manually count the assets residing in each office before entering them into the spreadsheet. This method wastes time, is characterized by errors and it is difficult to keep inventory records.

Our Contribution:

Our contribution is to produce a system that will reduce cost and time complexity of COMPANIES, ORGANIZATIONS OR UNIVERSITITES administration. It is also helpful for planning new development in COMPANIES, ORGANIZATIONS OR UNIVERSITITES

 Functional requirements:

The Functional requirements are divided into the following two parts

  1. Administration Functional Requirements
  2. User requirements

Administration Functional Requirements:

  • System login function, with password change functionality after login.
  • Add new item and category into system assets list.
  • Remove item and category from inventory.
  • Delete and update system users.
  • View inventory status.
  • Products search by name or by product category.
  • Check bills generated for the day.
  • Check the money transaction for the day.
  • Check the inventory status, minimum and maximum stock point and order point.
  • Create inventory reports i-e daily, weekly and monthly.

User requirements:

  • System login function.
  • View available products.
  • Assets search by name or by product category.
  • Check bills generated for the day.
  • Check the money transaction for the day.
  • Check the inventory status, minimum and maximum stock point and order point.
  • Create inventory reports i-e daily, weekly and monthly.

Development Languages:

  • A suitable programming environment needs to be selected for system development. The chosen languages should be capable of developing a graphical user interface to display suitable output to the end users.[1]
  • There are many programming and scripting languages available which meet criteria to develop our system but we have used the following:
  1. HTML:

This language is use for developing static pages our system

  1. CSS:

This language is use for formatting our system

  1. PHP:

This language is use to work over the system dynamically.

  1. JAVASCRIPT:

This language is use for validation or authentication.

  1. MYSQL

This language is use for developing a database of our system.

 Software/Tools:

There are many freeware software available in the market but we use following these:

  • Dream viewer
  • XAMP Server
  • WAMP Server

Implication:

This system is design for COMPANIES, ORGANIZATIONS OR UNIVERSITITES (Barani Institute of Management Science) because COMPANIES, ORGANIZATIONS OR UNIVERSITITES does not have any kind of online inventory management system and this kind of system is required to decrease cost and increase the work done efficiently.
