Comment créer une application de gestion d'inventaire impressionnante en PHP et MySQL

Vous n'avez pas besoin de logiciels d'entreprise surchargés pour suivre efficacement votre inventaire. Ce didacticiel vous aidera à développer votre propre application de suivi d'inventaire personnalisée afin que vous puissiez prendre des décisions d'inventaire intelligentes basées sur des données d'inventaire précises et opportunes.

Configuration requise

Notre système d'inventaire nécessite la licence commerciale standard phpGrid et phpChart. Il a besoin de quelques fonctionnalités avancées des deux composants.

  • PHP 5.6+ ( PHP 7.x est maintenant fortement recommandé! )
  • MySQL / MariaDB
  • phpGrid Lite (sous-grille) -ou- phpGrid Enterprise (détail principal, regroupement)
  • phpChart (pour les rapports)

Que contient un système de gestion des stocks

Un système de gestion des stocks comporte plusieurs composants critiques. À la base, le contrôle des stocks fonctionne en suivant les deux fonctions principales d'un entrepôt: la réception (entrant) et l'expédition (sortant). D'autres activités telles que le déplacement ou la relocalisation des stocks ont également lieu. Les matières premières sont décrémentées et les produits finis sont incrémentés.

  • Envois entrants
  • Ordres sortants
  • Inventaire
  • Fournisseurs
  • Scanner de codes-barres (1/2019 Nouveau!)

Conception de la base de données du système d'inventaire

En règle générale, un système d'inventaire comprend quatre éléments de base: les produits, les achats, les commandes et les fournisseurs. Chaque élément doit être suivi en fonction de son emplacement, de sa référence SKU et de sa quantité. L'inventaire actuel, ou les produits disponibles, est mis à jour en suivant les expéditions entrantes et les commandes sortantes. Les alertes de commande peuvent être configurées pour se déclencher lorsque les niveaux de stock tombent en dessous des niveaux minimaux personnalisés.

Configuration de la base de données Inventory Manager

Téléchargez le InventoryManager.sqlscript SQL à partir du dépôt GitHub de ce didacticiel, puis exécutez le script à l'aide d'un outil MySQL tel que MySQL Workbench. Cela créera une nouvelle base de données nommée InventoryManagerainsi que les tables nécessaires pour ce didacticiel.

Un petit mot sur ZenBase

The Inventory Management System is also one of the many application templates readily available at ZenBase (built on the top of phpGrid) for anyone — with or without coding skills — to use and customize for their own needs.

Configurer phpGrid

Allons-nous en.

Nous utiliserons un composant datagrid de phpGrid pour gérer toutes les opérations CRUD (Créer, Supprimer, Mettre à jour et Supprimer) de la base de données interne .

Assurez-vous de télécharger une copie de phpGrid avant de continuer.

Pour installer phpGrid, procédez comme suit:

  1. Décompressez le fichier de téléchargement phpGrid.
  2. Téléchargez le phpGriddossier dans le dossier phpGrid.
  3. Terminez l'installation en configurant le conf.phpfichier.

Avant de commencer le codage, nous devons inclure les informations suivantes dans conf.phple fichier de configuration phpGrid.

Création de l'interface utilisateur (UI)

Notre système d'inventaire comprend quatre pages:

  • Inventaire actuel
  • Achats entrants
  • Commandes à expédier
  • Rapports

Les menus

Le fichier d'inclusion du menu est stocké dans un incdossier nommé menu.php. Le code du menu est simple. Par souci de concentration, nous n'entrerons pas dans les détails. N'hésitez pas à consulter le code à l'intérieur du incdossier.

Nous avons également ajouté un élément de menu nommé Reports.

Des pages

Nous utiliserons le même modèle de page que celui utilisé pour les didacticiels CRM et gestion de projet.

Inventaire actuel

Commençons par la page Inventaire actuel.

Les achats entrants augmentent l'inventaire tandis que les commandes sortantes le diminuent. Du point de vue principal-détail, l'inventaire actuel n'a pas une, mais deux grilles de données détaillées - les achats (achats entrants) et les commandes (commandes sortantes).

Ainsi, la page Inventaire actuel est composée d'une grille principale (l'inventaire actuel en stock) et de deux grilles de détail (Achats entrants et Commandes sortantes). Nous pouvons facilement présenter ces relations en utilisant la fonction phpGrid one master et multiple detail datagrids.

phpGrid Lite contre Professionnel et Entreprise

Master detail and Grouping features require phpGrid Professional or Enterprise edition. If you are on the free Lite version, you can still use subgrid in place of Master detail albeit less advanced. Professional or Enterprise versions are highly recommended.

If you have read the last tutorial Building a Donation Manager from Scratch, you will have no problem following the code below.

Note the use of the set_col_format() function used to format the integers.

That’s it for the Current Inventory datagrid. Here’s what it looks like so far:

Now, let’s make a few changes to enhance our Product datagrid.

First of all, we will add some conditional formatting: whenever the InventoryOnHand is set to zero or a negative value, it is displayed using a different background color. We will use the set_conditional_format() function for this purpose.

The above code adds a display condition so that whenever the InventoryOnHand field has a value that is less than (lt) one, the text color changes to red and the background color to dark gray (#DCDCDC).

Secondly, whenever the InventoryOnHand is less than the value shown in MinimumRequired, we would like to alert the user by displaying it in a prominent background color such as gold. To compare values between two fields, we must switch to Javascript because the set_conditional_format() function only works with a single field.

The code below uses a for loop to iterate through each row in the Products datagrid. It compares the inventoryOnHand with theminimumRequired and, when the condition is met, it will use thesetCell function to change the background color.

You can learn more about comparing multiple cell values on the phpGrid support website.

Next, on the same page, we need to see the purchases coming in (Incoming) and orders going out (Outgoing) for a specific product.

Purchases Detail Grid (Incoming)

Orders Detail Grid (Outgoing)

Both detail grids use the same foreign key ProductId to link to the master datagrid (Products).

Finally, our complete code to manage the Current Inventory page is:

Here’s the a snapshot of the inventory page:

Incoming Purchases

The next page is the Incoming Purchase page. It is similar to the Purchase Detail Grid we saw when setting up the Current Inventory page. We group the purchases by ProductId and display the sum inNumberReceived. Any incoming purchases will increase the inventory.

Note: Grouping feature is only available in the phpGrid Professional and Enterprise edition. To filter without the grouping, use the integration search.

The complete code:

Here’s a screenshot of our Incoming Purchases page with grouping enabled:

Outgoing Orders

The next page is the Outgoing Orders page. It is similar to the Orders Detail Grid from the Current Inventory page. Here, we will introduce an advanced function called set_grid_method().

Summary

This tutorial builds a simple and extendable inventory system in less than 50 lines of code. The progressive style of these tutorials also helps the reader to ultimately become more familar and comfortable with phpGrid by introducing a limited number of new phpGrid features in each one.

What’s Coming Up

This marks the end of the code needed to create the datagrids required for this tutorial. However, we are not done yet. There is still one more page we need to create — Reports. We will cover that after the jump.

What’s the use of an inventory system without some of type of report? In this section, you will learn how to use phpChart — which seamlessly integrates with phpGrid — to create visually pleasing and useful reports for your Inventory Manager application.

Here’s what our page will look like when it’s done:

Before we start, we need to install phpChart. It is recommended that you obtain the full version of phpChart since the free version (phpChart Lite) supports only the line chart.

Setup phpChart

It’s important that we keep phpGrid and phpChart in separate folders. Below is the recommended folder hierarchy.

www +-- Donation_Manager | |-- phpGrid | | +-- conf.php | |-- phpChart | | +-- conf.php | +-- ...

Report Design

We will place a pie chart next to an inventory summary grid. The datagrid provides the series data to plot the pie chart.

phpGrid and phpChart Integration

First of all, include calls to both conf.php files at the beginning of the code.

require_once("phpGrid/conf.php"); require_once("phpChart/conf.php");

Pie Chart

Below is the complete code to create our pie chart:

Let’s walk through the code.

The first line is the constructor. We pass array(null) as the series data because we don’t wish to have any data displayed in the pie chart initially. The inventory data used to plot the chart is not yet available when it is first initialized. The data is fed from the datagrid later in JSON.

We also give our chart a unique name, PieChart.

Next, we give it a title. Nothing fancy here.

Once we have the title, we call the series default function to set the renderer to PieRenderer. Unlike a bar chart, a pie chart does not have a Y axis.

We can also set the rendererOptions property. We will not go into each option in detail here, but you can find more information in the online documentation.

We also want to show a legend. The set_legend command below shows the legend to the west (noted byw) or to the left of the pie chart.

We will also remove the border and the background.

Finally, we draw our chart by giving it a height and width in pixels.

However, if you execute the code now, you will not see the chart because the data used to render it isn’t available yet.

Inventory Summary Datagrid

Here, we will use the same the inventory datagrid as we did in the Products page. We just need to add one more thing — an event handler.

In phpGrid, we can add an event handler with the add_event() function. add_event() binds an event handler, which is essentially a JavaScript function, to a specific phpGrid event. A list of possible events can be found here.

Since we must wait for the datagrid to finish loading before it can send the data to plot the chart, we use the event jqGridLoadComplete.

phpGrid 101 — jqGridLoadComplete Event

jqGridLoadComplete is last event that occurs once the whole datagrid body has finished loading. Note that the grid body will be reloaded if the user changes the sort order of a column or sets a filter.

Sending Data with Javascript

The following is the Javascript event handler for jqGridLoadComplete.

The complete code:

Now there you have it. Your just built your very first inventory management system from scratch using PHP and MySQL!

Thank you for reading! If you enjoyed this post, please give me some claps so more people see it.

New to Programming? Fear Not!

If you are new to programming and are not yet comfortable with coding, you may want to check out ZenBase that is built on the top of the phpGrid. The Inventory Management System is but one of the many application templates readily available at ZenBase for anyone — with or without coding skills — to use and customize for their own needs.

Online Demo

  • Current Inventory
  • Incoming Purchases
  • Outgoing orders
  • Reports (with datagrid side-by-side)

Next: Add the barcode scanner

Common Issue:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class ‘phpGrid\C_DataGrid’ not found

How to fix:

If you are using the free Lite version, you can either comment out the first line

// use phpGrid\C_DataGrid;

— OR —

Add a global namespace symbol — single backslash — BEFORE the constructor

$dg = new \C_DataGrid(“SELECT * FROM orders”, “orderNumber”, “orders”);
