Abstract : An inventory control program has been devised for the IBM 7090 computer to meet the requirements of a small electronic system development group. The system presently uses punch card input for control information, but is adaptable to on-line operation in multiple access systems. The inventory system keeps a record of the present stock of a number of items, and records all orders and reservations for the items. On the basis of these orders and reservations, the system predicts future quantities of the items and warns when an item reaches a critical level. This system should be generally useful to activities requiring a continuing stock of a moderate number of distinct items. (Author)
