Abstract

An inventory management and control system (10) and method for monitoring the status of an inventory item (12) where the inventory item (12) comprises a tag (14) for storing an identification code is disclosed. The system (10) includes a network of interrogation zones (22), each interrogation zone (20) comprising a reader (16) and at least one antenna (18), a middleware server (24) connected to the respective reader (16) in each interrogation zone (20), the middleware server (24) managing and controlling the network of interrogation zones (22), a monitoring server (26) connected to the middleware server (24), the monitoring server (26) processing data acquired by the middleware server (24), and a database server (28) connected to the monitoring server (26), the database server (28) storing data processed by the monitoring server (26), wherein the reader (16) is adapted to receive data from the tag (14) of the inventory item (12) when the tag (14) is within the interrogation zone (20) and is further adapted to transmit data to the middleware upon a respective request.
