Inventory management

This tutorial focuses on capabilities that would typically be provided by an inventory management visualization solution. The concepts here are not specific to inventory management, and can be cherry picked for use in your own application. A completed version of this tutorial can be found on our GitHub project. The master branch contains an empty HOOPS Communicator project, intended for you to paste code snippets from this tutorial and build the app as you follow along. Alternatively, the completed branch contains the completed tutorial.
