  • Web based (apache/mysql preferable)
  • Easily add/update parts counts
  • Features
    • Scan barcode on product, pull up data if exists
    • Determine what projects use a given part
    • Project bill of materials (BOM)
    • Search for part on part number, keyword, etc
    • Determine if enough parts on-hand to build a project


  • Parts fields
    • Description
    • Wren Industries part number
    • Footprint (TO-92, 0603, etc)
    • Value (10K, .01uf, etc)
    • Quantity on-hand
    • List of suppliers
    • Tags (resistor, cpu, etc)
    • Photograph (URL)
    • CAD footprint name
    • Free-form notes fields
    • Purchase lots
      • Manufacturers part number
      • Manufacturer

    • Admin - do anything
    • Engineer - add/edit/delete suppliers, projects and parts
    • Guest - view suppliers, projects and parts
