Abstract

Maintaining social distancing is crucial in all aspects of life in this pandemic situation. Stock updation is an important aspect in pharmacy to provide effective supply chain with the use of sensors. The availability of appropriate stock ensures that the product can be delivered to customer on time. In the advent of Enterprise Management System (ERM), most hospitals are integrating these software systems. However, manual effort is required for the updation of stocks in the ERM software which results in overhead costs such as payroll. In the existing model, if some of the old stocks are stocked for long time, it may lead to the waste of stocks. In order to avoid all of above problems, a Kanban planning based model has been built to implement the stock updation in pharmacy where all the hospitals can be benefited by reducing the manual work. This system also reduces the inadvertent errors caused by the workers and the number of employees and provide more effective supply chain to the hospital. It can enable designed to maintain the social distancing of pharmacists also enabling better storage their oxygen cylinders and vaccines in a particular place.
