MetadataShow full item record
Stock Reconciliation is about counting and evaluating stock-in-trade or in the hands of the brand ambassadors, after a certain period usually one month to value the total stock for preparation of the accounts. It was important to dive into this study because there was a lot of tension and uncertainty on the final day of stock take and the brand ambassadors incurred a lot of expenses through transport costs as they are trying to bring the devices back to office for weekly reconciliations. In this study, rapid application development(RAD) approach to software development was used as it puts less emphasis on planning and more emphasis on an adaptive process. Prototypes were used in addition to the design specifications. We used RAD because software is an inherently different kind of artifact. It can radically change the entire process used to solve a problem. As a result, knowledge gained from the development process itself can feed back to the requirements and design of the solution.
