POS system which constantly has inventory going in and out of it. As a business sells its inventory, real-time processing would automatically reduce the amount of stock. Similarly, if a new shipment of product arrives for the business, the POS system would then add it into the inventory to sell once again. After looking over both batch processing and real-time processing, it is clear they both have their strengths and weaknesses. Batch processing systems are of greater use in situations that require data to be processed at certain points while real-time processing serve a better purpose in situations that require constant flow of data. Any business would do well if both processing systems are used for different functions within the organization.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
