Abstract MiniZone is a catalog sales business in transition to an online business which retails books compact disks and DVDs Although MiniZones current database system is manually intensive it was satisfactory in fulfilling previous catalog orders However statistical projections suggest that within four years MiniZones online business will require a 200 increase of the current order fulfillment In support of this anticipated growth MiniZone requires an automated inventory tracking system This document outlines the proposed business requirements and data structure for MiniZones tracking system Additionally it includes the database problem definition and proposed solutions for accurate management of inventory levels Business Opportunity The current MiniZone inventory management system is antiquated and largely manual It requires a significant amount of physical paperwork to connect the other record keeping systems in the company For example whenever a customer places an order the order department enters the order then prints out a pick list for the warehouses Once the order has been shipped the warehouse personnel deplete the inventory count of the items shipped and then send a copy of the pick list with shipping notes back to the customer relations department Each order requires at least three separate manual forms routed between three different departments When MiniZone was supported exclusively through catalog sales we were able to sustain this process without considerably delaying our shipments However now that we moved our catalog online and are striving to have 90 online sales our existing process is simply too cumbersome and inaccurate The existing system often reports that an item is out of stock when the item is available or that stock is on hand when stock is not on hand Both situations are frustrating to customers and they cause a loss of sales to MiniZone This proposal addresses a critical business opportunity an automated inventory tracking system that will interface with the existing infrastructure applications in the company Rather than routing pieces of paper
