This is back end program written in Java Servlets. This program is actually assessing the Inventory requirements of the Company.
It takes the Input from the Inventory Requisition form and processes it i.e. it then compares the Inventory demanded by different departments with the minimum inventory required according to customers order.

We will be comparing Date of placing order and Date of receiving order, Quality of Inventory, Quantity of order received and Quantity of order placed, Transport mode etc. If there is uniformity in both then we will be assessing the amount to be paid to the supplier.
