The honeys from the Phytogeographic Provinces (PP) of the south of Buenos Aires province (Argentina) were characterised by the sugar composition and physicochemical parameters used for honey quality control. A large set (n=329) of traceable raw honey samples obtained from beekeepers were analysed and met the specifications of the national and/or international standards for the evaluated parameters, which denoted their blossom origin and confirmed their authenticity, good maturity and freshness. The influence of flora and the pedoclimatic conditions of each phytogeographical region, as well as their beekeeping practices, on the physical and chemical properties of honey allowed its characterization. Thus, the honeys from the southeast of Buenos Aires province were characterized by higher contents of moisture, fructose, maltose, erlose, hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and ash, pH and electrical conductivity (EC) and slightly lighter colours; while southwest honeys showed higher free acidities, sucrose content and ºBrix values. Honeys from the PP Espinal exhibited characteristic lower contents of fructose, HMF and ash and EC values, and larger amounts of sucrose. Honeys from the PP Monte presented typical lower moisture contents and slightly darker colours. Honeys from the PP Pampeana were typified by higher amounts of fructose.

In practice, the industrial world that looks the same as the service industry requires the players to do a lot of quality improvement in order to compete. Its development is so rapid that many business actors use special tricks to run their business. Likewise with business actors from motorcycle service and service workshops, namely AHASS SPS Motor Palembang. The supply of spare parts that must always be there when customers need them is the main attraction for every workshop. But in reality, there is no special inventory management technique that can help partman to order spare parts in the following month. Therefore, this study will create a web-based spare part inventory information system that can control the amount of spare part stock and help predict the need for spare parts every month with the forecasting technique used, namely the Weighted Moving Average method. The results given from this system are suggestions of spare part stock forecast results with a user-friendly web-based display so that it can improve partman performance, maintain credibility and optimize workshop cashflow
