Inventory System

Inventory System

We are tasked with creating an online inventory system for toy company named Ditropolis – Our direct “customer” would be eCreations, the web firm assigned to creating the application. The inventory system will track widgets, their quantity and their locations. Any guest can view the inventory at any given location. Users can log in and “check out” widgets and assign the widgets from location to location. Admin can create new widgets as well as new locations. The application will be developed and live on the web. For practicality purposes, back-end development will be done in PHP with database calls done in MySQL. The interface markup will be completed with HTML, JavaScript, CSS and jQuery (JavaScript Library).
