This invention relates generally to the handling of stored elements or goods and is particularly directed to the automatic storage and retrieval system of elements positioned within a secured bin or drawer. Inventory control and management is an important part of any organization involved in the manufacture, distribution, or sale of goods. It is important not only to know the number and types of items in stock, but also to ensure that these items are located in an assigned place from which they may be easily retrieved. Since in most environments the items are at some point handled by a worker, it is desirable to minimize the possibility of human error in the categorizing, storing and retrieval of these items. This is critically important where the items are substantially identical in appearance but are substantially dissimilar and possibly even unrelated in operation and function. Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide for improved handling of stored goods.It is another object of the present invention to provide for the automatic storage and retrieval system of goods in inventory by means of an arrangement and a method which substantially eliminate the possibility of errors in the handling of these goods. Yet another object of the present invention is to provide for the automatic storage in and retrieval system from looked drawers of bar coded elements. A further object of the present invention is to provide a computer controlled inventory information and control system. A still further object of the present invention is to provide for improved reliability in the handling of coded bulk containers wherein are stored large numbers of electronic components by substantially reducing the possibility of human error in their storage and retrieval. The automatic storage and retrieval system includes a bar code reader coupled to a controller which, in turn, is coupled to a plurality of storage cabinets. Each storage cabinet includes a plurality of drawers each coupled to the controller via the combination of an electrical interface and a mechanical drive. Reading of the bar code on an element or on an apparatus into which the elements are deposited for processing or installation into the controller automatically opens a drawer associated with that particular component. Following either deposit of the coded element into the drawer or its removal therefrom, the drawer is manually closed by an operator and remains locked to prevent unauthorized or erroneous access to the contents of the drawer until that code is again read into the controller.
