A Database System is to be created for maintaining Inventory of items in a store. The database system is expected to maintain stock of various items available in the store. The items are organised into several categories. Each item has an item code, name, selling price and a batch number. A batch number is related to the expiry date of the item, supplier code of the supplier who supplied that item and the cost price of that item. The system also maintains the list of suppliers. System records the daily sales of the items. In case the stock of an item falls below a specified amount called reorder level for that category, a report/ purchase order is generated for the purchase of the item.
