FPT Edu students help the Bruneian digitize the warehouse management


One state unit of Brunei is considering and testing the warehouse management software of electronic components implemented by the FPT Edu student group to put it into use. The warehouse management software of electronic components is the topic performed by students Ton That Bao and Nguyen Trung Tin (Vietnam) together with Mr.Aidee, Mr. Masdey and Mr. Anas (Brunei). This is also the graduation thesis of FPT University students.

With the desire to apply new technologies to the warehouse management of components, FPT UBD Innovation Lab suggested students implement a modern warehouse management software for a unit of the state of Brunei. The opportunity to implement this topic for students from two schools, FPT University and Universiti Brunei Darussalam (Brunei National University) started from there.

Since the visit of the Sultan of Brunei, Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, at the English Cooperation Center between Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and FPT University (FPT) – FPT UBD Global Center in November 2017, the educational partnership between the two countries has also been expanded. After that, FPT UBD Innovation Lab was established and put into operation.

Ton That Bao, a student majoring in software engineering at FPT University, shared: “Manual manipulation, overlaps of goods, and the quite unclear arrangement makes the warehouse checking really difficult and take much time. The team has put the current system on the website system and has a phone application to help with the warehouse checking.”

Project presentation abroad helps the FPT Edu student group have more experiences.

Operation of the project is based on the foundation of the flexible software development method, bringing the products to users in the fastest way. At the same time, this software will limit fluctuations when the crisis situations arise. Finishing the presentation, the scientific council, including a representative of the state unit of Brunei, commented quite positively. The highlight of the project is the technology integration but the usage is quite simple and easy.

To complete the project, the group also encountered many difficulties, from exploring technologies to meeting customers’ flexible requirements. Although there was not much support, Bao, as well as other members of the group, said that it was an opportunity to explore, research and implement by themselves a complete and useful software.

This is also the second time Bao has come to Brunei. The first time was in 2017 when Bao participated in the “On the Job Training” internship. Bao shared, “It can be said that Bruneian friends are kind and nice. I have many opportunities to make friends with people who are even older than my father and uncle. The most memorable thing is many times of transportation and help in buying food. The lab of this semester has more members, compared to previous semesters. They are not only students but also from many companies, offices, governments, etc. This creates more opportunities to learn”.

“Project presentation abroad helps me have more experiences. They are not only discovering the new culture, learning to be independent in a new country but also helping me grow up and be braver. Making projects is a real experience, creating real products, being applied in practice, solving practical problems rather than presenting the theory”, Bao added.
