Abstract: The authors have participated in an activity for town development named 'Machi-POS' which is a research project to develop a service by totally supporting management of independent small restaurants within a certain area. As a part effort of Machi-POS, this study firstly develops an inventory management system cooperating with POS system and web-based automatic menu order feature. The system will contribute to reduce the opportunity loss, and will make the improvement of service quality and sales possible at lower labour cost. The system also provides POS services cheaply and efficiently by using common devices. This study makes it available for two or more restaurants in restaurant district, and gives additional function to support safety and security of foods. The multiple-user capability enables restaurants to share inventory information to each other. Therefore, reducing disposal loss will be further promoted because overstock or shortage is adjustable between restaurants with Machi-POS.
