I'm sure there are some very *specific* packages to handle your needs, but
you could also do it quite well with the database program called Panorama
(ProVUE). It runs on the Macintosh, is blisteringly fast because the
entire db is put in RAM, and has "near relational" capabilities due to
lookup functions that access other files. It has a very powerful macro
library for automating tasks. Most professionals seem to use it for
purchasing and inventory type things. You can add in support for things
like bar code readers.
