Formatted abstract

Vending machines are great money and time savers. The University of Queensland Computer Science and Electrical Engineering department desires this benefit to dispense small components such as resistors, microprocessors and other components required by students for projects and practicals. The proposed small component vending machine (SCVM) will give students a 24-hour source of components.

Multiple machines will be networked throughout the department buildings. The status and contents of each would be available through the Internet and orders placed and processed. Student budgets and stock inventory will be monitored and updated automatically and notifications of low stock and low budgets sent via e-mail. A machine less than one square metre would be capable of dispensing 500 different capsules.
