2.2 Definition of Terms/Concepts
2.2.1 Barcode Inventory System
The term “barcode inventory system” is generic and encompasses avariety of different applications and industries. The term is commonly used in warehousing, logistics, and distribution; it can also be used in retail point-of-sale, manufacturing, and various service sector implementations.

2.3.2 Two-Bin System
The two-bin system is only slightly more sophisticated than the physical count system. Using the marvels of modern technology, this system uses two bins of materials. When one bin is empty, it's time to re-order.
2.3.3 Perpetual Tracking
This method of counting is demand driven. Instead of counting how many items are in inventory, we count how many leave inventory. The demand can be tracked by batches of inventory usage, such as demand...
