Abstract

This paper addressed a comprehensive modelling and functionality requirement evaluation of perpetual production logistics inventory system for small-to-medium enterprises. The main idea is to analyse the system behaviour and data transactions invoked by a module-based inventory system using business process modelling and object-oriented data modelling techniques. The paper explains through the methodology and modelling procedure which eventually leads to a computerized inventory information system as a module able to be integrated with other back office systems in production logistics. The system is able to manipulate all inbound warehousing operations including docking, storing, and retrieval data as well as actual inventory SKU balance dynamically to keep the inventory data instantly up-to-date and in real-time. The functionality of the solution is evaluated based on the identified inventory system requirements responding to all inventory controlling of receiving, allocating, load balancing, and traceability linking through different types of lookups and data queries.
