Introduction

Technological evolution has paved the way for our modern state of living. That has been essential to the change in people’s way of seeing and working in his environment. This so likewise spurred much further to the desire Inventory System is popularly used in many firms because of a case in monitoring the in and outflow of the products. Inventory Systems also provides complete information about the number of product specification details and corresponding prices. This information allows the AIC administrator to make better marketing decisions. On where to re-order or re-stock, upgrade stock specification, terminate or cease product type, change supplier, and many other actions. Or devices of developing systems more tools to enjoy, and that simplifies this job.

Background of the Study

AIC Marketing sells various hardware, electrical, and safety supplies; its business address is located at Lopez Jaena between Burgos and Galo Street Bacolod City. AIC Marketing owned and managed by Alfred Joseph Valencia Nuńez, who is both a dealer and distributor of construction products.

AIC Marketing is doing the Inventory of their products manually taking many periods of time which could be used doing other productive tasks. This circumstance helped the group to realize the firm’s need for an automated Inventory System. With it, it is viewed that the said system would eliminate tedious and manual Inventory of products.

Stock Management System

An inventory control system is a system the encompasses all facets of managing an organization’s inventories; buying, transport, receiving, monitoring, warehousing and storage, turnover, and reordering. In several companies, the actions related to every one of those areas is probably not strictly contained inside separate subsystems. However, these capabilities should be carried out in sequence to have a well-run stock management system. Computerized stock management techniques make it potential to combine the different useful subsystems, which can be part of the stock administration right into a single cohesive system. Matas is operating standard weighted costing with Stock II on Ax2009.

The GEA Group is likely one of the largest system suppliers for meals and power processes, with EUR 5.four billion in income in 2011. GEA carried out Stock-II in 2010 with the primary function of having the ability to manage and preserve merchandise reservations in a versatile and clever manner. Additional, the Actual-time costing method featured by Stock-II ensures correct costing at any cut-off date.

Methodology

This chapter shows the methods architectural structures and diagram, hardware and software requiremenst considered for the system.

The proponents followed the Incremental Waterfall Model, one of the models in System Development Life Cycle (SDLC). This model is their guide to make the system feasible. The different Phases involve Planning, Analysis, Design and Implementation. The phases where done correctly to ensure the objective of the proposed system is achieve.   

Design Phase

Incremental Waterfall Model

Incremental Waterfall Model

Planning Phase

This is second phase in the project life cycle. It involves creating of a set of plans to help guide the team through the execution and closure phases of the project.

Analysis Phase

Is where you break down the deliverables in the high-level Project Charter into the more detailed business requirements. The Analysis Phase is also the part of the project where you identify the overall direction that the project will take through the creation of the project strategy documents. 

Design Phase

This is the phase of system designing. It is the most crucial phase in the development of a system. The logical system design arrived at as a result of system analysis and is converted into physical system design

Development Phase

During this phase, systems are developed or acquired based on detailed design specifications. The system is validated through a sequence of unit, integration, performance, system, and acceptance testing. The objective is to ensure that the system functions as expected and that sponsor’s requirements are satisfied.

Testing Phase

The software development lifecycle (SDLC) is where you focus on investigation and discovery. During the testing phase, developers find out whether their code and programming are work according to customer requirements. And while it’s not possible to solve all the failures you might find during the testing phase, it is possible to use the results from this phase to reduce the number of errors within the software program.

Implementation Phase

The project team creates the actual product. Product implementation can be an exciting phase for the customer, because their idea for the project becomes something tangible. Project developers begin building and coding the software.

Maintenance Phase

 The system is scheduled for maintenance every 8 months. This has been explained to the firm’s administrator and management.

Program Environment

Front End

HTML is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications. With Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and JavaScript, it forms a triad of cornerstone technologies for the Worldwide Web. Web browsers receive HTML documents from a web server or from local storage and render them into multimedia web pages. HTML describes the structure of a web page semantically and originally included cues for the appearance of the document.

CSS is designed primarily to enable the separation of presentation and content, including aspects such as the layout, colors, and fonts. This separation can improve content accessibility, provide more flexibility and control in the specification of presentation characteristics, enable multiple HTML pages to share formatting by specifying the relevant CSS in a separate .css file, and reduce complexity and repetition in the structural content.

Back End

PHP code may be embedded into HTML or HTML5 markup, or it can be used in combination with various web template systems, web content management systems and web frameworks. PHP code is usually processed by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module in the web server or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable. The web server software combines the results of the interpreted and executed PHP code, which may be any type of data, including images, with the generated web page. PHP code may also be executed with a command-line interface (CLI) and can be used to implement standalone graphical applications

MySQL is a central component of the LAMP open-source web application software stack (and other “AMP” stacks). LAMP is an acronym for “Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python”. Applications that use the MySQL database include: TYPO3, MODx, Joomla, WordPress, phpBB, MyBB, and Drupal. MySQL is also used in many high-profile, large-scale websites, including Google (though not for searches), Facebook, Twitter,Flickr, and YouTube.
