Idea Exchange: An efficient and effective inventory system

We create an inventory card—which lists the product's name and description, container size, and the company we purchase it from—for every product in our inventory. The inventory card is attached to one container of the product, which is placed toward the back of the inventory.

When someone removes the container with the card, the card gets placed in the to-be-ordered basket. Once the product has been reordered, the card is placed in the ordered basket. When the product comes in, the card gets placed back on a container—starting the whole process over again.
