Project Description: The Micro Computer Services located in the Corpus Christi Hall building of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi has an inventory database of the computer workstations and accessories used by the students and the staff. The inventory database is currently being updated by manual entry of the data into the MCS database tables. This method is time consuming, tedious, error prone and consumes scarce manpower. The Inventory Control using Pocket PC project has been developed to collect inventory data such as barcode and location of the inventory. The resulting inventory records are stored in the Pocket PC memory. The Pocket PC database is then integrated with the Access 2000 database on the Windows 2000 development workstation. The data in the Access 2000 database is then transferred to the MYSQL database residing on the Micro Computer Services remote server. The whole process of updating the inventory database through the Inventory Control using Pocket PC project has resulted in a more efficient inventory management system.
