3. LITERATURE REVIEW

In order to perform this research, I will use my knowledge on these courses: “Management Information System”-“Database System”-“Facility Layout”-“Supply Chain and Logistic Management”-“Quality Management” and “Project Management”, I also references more on the internet to support my research.

In the paper: “A Software Architecture for InventoryManagement System”, Taner Arsan, Emrah Bas_kan, Emrah Ar and Zeki Bozkus,
Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013. I found that they used the barcode system and the software tools PHP for their Inventory management project. In details:

Barcode System

We chose ‘‘code39’’ because first of all, code39 does not need license, have the possibility to print for unlimited products, supports full ASCII, number, letter and special character usage. And also it was the easiest to read and was the best fit for the barcode generators for PHP. As the barcode generator, we found one compatible with PHP. It is using PHP’s GD Graphics Library.

Software Tools PHP

As a derivation of Perl, PHP, is a server side, user interactive, programming language, works nearly in on all platforms.
