Stock Management System Project

Introduction:

Stock management is an essential aspect of any business, be it small or large. Managing stocks efficiently helps a company reduce expenses, optimize production, and make accurate decisions about product purchases and sales.

However, manual stock management can be tedious, time-consuming, and prone to errors. Therefore, a stock management system is needed to automate the entire process, making it more efficient, accurate and cost-effective.

Stock Management System Project

Project Description:

Our proposed project is a stock management system that aims to automate and streamline the stock management process for small and medium-sized businesses. The system will be web-based, user-friendly, and will provide real-time inventory tracking.

Features:

  1. Inventory Management: The system will provide a comprehensive overview of all stock items, including the number of items in stock, their location, and the value of each item.
  2. Real-time tracking: The system will track inventory in real-time, allowing businesses to monitor their stock levels, and quickly respond to any stock shortages.
  3. Order Management: The system will generate orders automatically based on the stock levels and reorder points. This feature will ensure that businesses never run out of stock and can easily manage their orders.
  4. Supplier Management: The system will allow businesses to manage their suppliers, including tracking supplier contact details, product details, and delivery schedules.
  5. Reports: The system will generate comprehensive reports on stock levels, sales, and profits, providing businesses with valuable insights into their operations.

Technology Stack:

Our proposed technology stack for this project is as follows:

  • Frontend: HTML, CSS, JavaScript
  • Backend: Python, Django
  • Database: PostgreSQL

Database Design

  1. Products table:
  • product_id (primary key)
  • product_name
  • description
  • unit_price
  • category_id (foreign key referencing the Categories table)
  • supplier_id (foreign key referencing the Suppliers table)
  1. Categories table:
  • category_id (primary key)
  • category_name
  1. Suppliers table:
  • supplier_id (primary key)
  • supplier_name
  • contact_name
  • phone
  • email
  1. Stock table:
  • stock_id (primary key)
  • product_id (foreign key referencing the Products table)
  • location
  • quantity
  • reorder_point
  • reorder_quantity
  1. Orders table:
  • order_id (primary key)
  • order_date
  • supplier_id (foreign key referencing the Suppliers table)
  1. Order_Items table:
  • order_item_id (primary key)
  • order_id (foreign key referencing the Orders table)
  • product_id (foreign key referencing the Products table)
  • quantity
  • unit_price

With these tables, you can keep track of the products, categories, and suppliers, as well as their associated information. The Stock table can help you keep track of the inventory levels, while the Orders and Order_Items tables can help you manage the orders and the items included in each order.

Here is an example of MySQL code to create the tables for the stock management system:

<code>-- Products table
CREATE TABLE Products (
  product_id INT PRIMARY KEY,
  product_name VARCHAR(255),
  description VARCHAR(255),
  unit_price DECIMAL(10, 2),
  category_id INT,
  supplier_id INT,
  FOREIGN KEY (category_id) REFERENCES Categories(category_id),
  FOREIGN KEY (supplier_id) REFERENCES Suppliers(supplier_id)
);

-- Categories table
CREATE TABLE Categories (
  category_id INT PRIMARY KEY,
  category_name VARCHAR(255)
);

-- Suppliers table
CREATE TABLE Suppliers (
  supplier_id INT PRIMARY KEY,
  supplier_name VARCHAR(255),
  contact_name VARCHAR(255),
  phone VARCHAR(20),
  email VARCHAR(255)
);

-- Stock table
CREATE TABLE Stock (
  stock_id INT PRIMARY KEY,
  product_id INT,
  location VARCHAR(255),
  quantity INT,
  reorder_point INT,
  reorder_quantity INT,
  FOREIGN KEY (product_id) REFERENCES Products(product_id)
);

-- Orders table
CREATE TABLE Orders (
  order_id INT PRIMARY KEY,
  order_date DATE,
  supplier_id INT,
  FOREIGN KEY (supplier_id) REFERENCES Suppliers(supplier_id)
);

-- Order_Items table
CREATE TABLE Order_Items (
  order_item_id INT PRIMARY KEY,
  order_id INT,
  product_id INT,
  quantity INT,
  unit_price DECIMAL(10, 2),
  FOREIGN KEY (order_id) REFERENCES Orders(order_id),
  FOREIGN KEY (product_id) REFERENCES Products(product_id)
);
</code>

This code will create the necessary tables for the stock management system and set up the appropriate relationships between them using foreign keys.

Note that the data types used for each column may need to be adjusted depending on your specific requirements.

Conclusion:

Our proposed stock management system will provide businesses with a comprehensive and efficient tool to manage their stock levels, reduce costs, and optimize production.

With features such as inventory management, real-time tracking, order management, supplier management, and reports, the system will streamline the entire stock management process.

We believe that this project will benefit small and medium-sized businesses by providing them with a user-friendly and cost-effective stock management solution.
