Help with Store Information Database Design

100+
P: 227
Hi,

I am designing a small database with access and vb.net (will be upgraded to sql server soon). The database is for store keeping in this fashion:

Items come and are registered. Then they must be placed in stores/shelves/layers. That is in a single store, we have shelves and each shelve have layers in it.

I did the tables but I donno what to store for layer information so that the program can know which layer is empty, half full or full and when new items arrive, it automatically suggests to the store keeper where to put the items. The items are very different in size, like computers, tools to medical equipments.

Any idea on how to design the tables?

The layer table should have, at minimum
  • A unique ID for the layer
  • Which shelf the layer belongs to
  • How many items can go on the layer to be considered full
