    inventory

    Dear native speakers,

    What does "inventory" mean in the following context?

    For example, one program lets the computer act like a word processor, another lets the same PC manage inventories, and still another transforms it into a virtual-reality video game.

    Thanks.

    The writer is saying that a computer can be used for many things. One of the things a computer can do is manage the stock (inventory) of a business or other entities which hold merchandise. This program will let you list everything in a store, for example, and let you locate items quickly.
