1 Asian Development Foundation College Tacloban City Chapter I The Problem and its Background Introduction From the

very earliest moments in the modern history of the computer, the people and the business world have witnessed the proliferation of computer system that obliges to meet the goal of Information technology. We have the completely new world of information and

communication readily available through computer. With its excellent standards and innovative brand of services, its aims are to provide business to prefer outrageous performance of Online Sales and Inventory System of ACME Tacloban Hardware. Through this advancement in information, traditional business managers are threaten with decrease of sales and fluctuation of profit if they would stick to their old manual system of handling business transactions. That is why computerized system is recommend to make transactions faster, accurate, efficient and effective. This study is gear towards this goal. Online Sales and Inventory of Tacloban ACME Hardware is an inventory control system that is design to enhance the productivity of a company‟s material department. This system will help them to transact through online, and for delivery.

2 Asian Development Foundation College Tacloban City Since the transactions were done manually, like book keeping, billing, information and inventory, it gave a hard time recording ordered items and keeping the records of stocks. Thus, proposed Online Sales and Inventory System of Tacloban ACME Hardware will help them to lessen to eliminate problems on sales, storage and retrieval of inventory data for the inventory status. Statement of the Problem This study aimed to develop an Online Sales and Inventory System of ACME Hardware. Specifically it sought to answer the following questions: 1. What problems are commonly encountered on the current Sales and Inventory System of Tacloban ACME Hardware? 2. What must be proposed to improve the current Sales and Inventory System? 3. What are the input needed to develop a system that can improve the current Sales and Inventory System? 4. What are the assessment of the respondents on the developed Online Sales and Inventory System of Tacloban ACME Hardware in terms of: a. Content b. Usefulness

3 Asian Development Foundation College Tacloban City Theoretical Framework There are various problems in the existing sales and inventory system has been detected using manual system in the preparation of the Sales and Inventory in every company. The problem in the record transaction as: Delays, errors, omission, and the like result of misinformation to the management of the availability of stock and sold items. Because of this problem its affect the effective decision on the part of the management. A proposed online sales and inventory system would eliminate all this problems. Efficiency in the process obtained and brings satisfaction for both management and company. Sales and Inventories are materials stored, waiting for processing, or experiencing processing. They are everywhere throughout all sectors of the economy. Observation of almost any company balance sheet, for example, reveals that a significant portion of its assets comprises inventories of raw materials, components and subassemblies within the production process, and finished goods. Most managers don‟t like inventories because they are like money placed in a drawer, assets tied up in investments that are not producing any return and, in fact, incurring a borrowing cost. They also incur costs for the care of the stored material and are subject to obsolescence. In the last two decades there has been a spate of

when a production order should be released to the plant. Final goods and inventories provide for better customer service. Items flow into the system. or how in process inventory is to be maintained in a production process. 1. Questions must be constantly answered as to when and how much raw material should be ordered. in spite of the bad features associated with inventories.4 Asian Development Foundation College Tacloban City programs developed by industry. all aimed at reducing inventory levels and increasing efficiency on the shop floor. Nevertheless. There are other kinds of inventories. In-process inventories reduce the impacts of the variability of the production rates in a plant and protect against failures in the processes. An inventory is represented in the simple diagram of Fig. Inventories occur Computer Studies Department . Because of their practical and economic importance. what level of safety stock should be maintained at a retail outlet. including spare parts inventories for maintenance and excess capacity built into facilities to take advantage of the economies of scale of construction. Raw material inventories provide a stable source of input required for production. the subject of inventory control is a major consideration in many situations. A large inventory requires less replenishment and may reduce ordering costs because of economies of scale. they do have positive purposes. remain for a time and then flow out.

During the intervening interval the item is part of the inventory. we will find some number of items. we have inventory level = (100 products/hour) (1 hour) = 100 products. What is given emphasis in the job market are variety of issues and opportunities for the graduates to realize and be aware the importance of computer skills they need to acquire to the present demand of the modern version of computer era. if we look in the box. The relation between flow. That number is the inventory level. Products arrive at a rate of 100 per hour. A product entering the box at one moment leaves the box one hour later. These questions are amenable to quantitative analysis with the help of inventory theory. The application of scientific knowledge of managing sales and inventory control which is called computer-assisted instruction is given importance today. Computer Studies Department . Clearly. time and inventory level that is basic to all systems is inventory level = (Flow rate) (Residence time) (1) where the flow rate is expressed in the same time units as the residence time. For example. A system Component with inventory Figure1 represents a manufacturing process that takes a fixed amount of time. Flow in Inventory level (Residence Time) Flow Out Figure 1.5 Asian Development Foundation College Tacloban City whenever the time an individual enters is different than when it leaves.

The said alternative would be the Online Sales and Inventory System of Tacloban ACME hardware. all processes connected to Online Sales and Inventory System of ACME would be more efficient and effective.

In this research study the manual process or system used by the said hardware was replaced by the automated one. availability of products. because the researchers believed that such information needed for the purposes of the study could be gathered.7 Asian Development Foundation College Tacloban City Scope and Delimitation of the study This study is delimited to the assessment of the existing sales and inventory systems flow implemented by the hardware and the introduction of online sales and inventory system. The study is further delimited to the suggestions which are offered by the researchers with regards to the use of the proposed system. This proposed system study is an important aspect in coming up with Online Sales and Inventory System of Tacloban ACME Hardware. Significance of the Study With the implementation of the Online Sales and Inventory System of Tacloban ACME Hardware will be able to closely monitor its inventory Computer Studies Department . and the number of items or remaining products. the costs relevant to its implementation and the persons involved in its operation. The study limited itself to the respondents mentioned above. It is further delimited to the identification of the significance of the new system to the company. One of the objectives of the study was to keep track the outgoing products.
