Furniture Sales and Inventory System User Interface and Features
This study describes the processes involved in the design, development and implementation of Furniture Sales and Inventory System. The aim was to replace the manual process of sales and inventory of a furniture store into a database application that will efficiently and accurately manage the transactions of the store. Rapid Application Development was used as the software development model for the design of furniture sales and inventory system. The system was evaluated by the IT experts and it was tested by the end-users as well. There were some recommendations by both the experts and end-users, changes have been made before it was installed in the store for implementation. The said system was installed in four computer units of the store, three for the cashiers and one for the owner that serves as the database server.
The Furniture Sales and Inventory System were developed in Visual Basic and MySQL. The web version of the project will be design in PHP, MySQL and Bootstrap.
