Once an operation is fixed, an operating room will be allocated to the patient and for each type of operation, there exists a procedure card which will have all the information about the material (Supply/Implant type) required for the operation, which could be supplies or Implants required to perform that particular operation like cotton, scissors etc. The materials could be classified into two types depending on how they are used - Implants and Supplies. Implant is an item that will be used inside the body. Supplies are the materials used to carry out the operations like Scissors, bandages, knives etc.
