This Article summarizes how the Inventory management application is structured and built.
What purposes does the Inventory Management test serve?
The user can manage and view inventory items in the Inventory management application. The application stores inventory data in a Tulip Table. In the application, the data from this Tulip Table is displayed. The user can also choose to manipulate the data according to the changes on the shop floor.
Table used in inventory management
The Tulip Table used in the application is called Inventory. Each record in the inventory table is an inventory item specified by the name, location, and status of the item. For example, you can have bricks, at the first station, reserved for a project. Each of these records has a QTY field where the user can track how many items are present in the specified location and state.
Fields of Inventory:
- ID: Unique ID of the inventory item created by the concatenation of the name, the location, and the status of the item
- Item: The name of the item
- Area: The area where the item is located
- Location: The exact location in the specified area
- Status: The status of the inventory item. Can be “Available”, “Quarantined” or “Reserved”
- QTY: The quantity of the items
