In the industry, the supply chain develops activities related to the flow of goods. A nerve point of this chain is warehouses, whose operational efficiency allows to minimize product losses and reduce overall costs. This work proposes the automation of a goods warehouse through its integration and interoperation with emerging technologies based on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), with the aim of knowing and planning the stock in real time to optimize its management, since a recurring

A methodology based on the design of an experimental management system is propose, through RFID devices and a microcontroller allows to monitor the inputs and outputs of goods, the second part of the system is a web application with a user interface where information about inventories could be viewed and analyzed in real time. This research will allow to lay the foundations of automation through IIoT of a warehouse with the purpose of turning it into an intelligent unit that provide strategic information.
