For our group project, we, the members of TJJL, chose to research the inventory database system of Lowe's. Our initial purpose and focus was to examine the inventory management system and gain an understanding in how it is used at the local level; specifically, the retail store in Barboursville. In the course of our project, we investigated the hardware that Lowe's utilizes, studied the methods used to maintain accuracy and update the database, explored the processes in which the database plays a part, and attempted to model parts of the database to gain a better understanding of its structure. We discovered how the inventory database system plays an integral part of Lowe's business activities. Every associate accesses the database every day as part of their normal operating activities, whether as a manager, a customer service associate, or a cashier.
