Question Shop Stock

Shops with 'stock' that depletes and replenishes... I'm trying to wrap my head around how I might implement this. I'm pretty good with manipulating the framework to my needs but, conceptually, I'm wondering what the best way to do this would be...

I don't want cron jobs. Surely there is another way to fudge some automation?

More database tables will be needed. I'm thinking 'stock' for current stock, a restock threshold, and a timestamp for when the item was last purchased. (In addition to the current restock threshold, its constant restock threshold -the amount it'll always reset to when the stock falls to zero.)

PHP Code:
if ((($item->stock == 0) && ($item->restockthreshold <= 0)) && (strtotime('+30 minutes'$item->timestamp) < $this->currenttime)){ 
If the item's stock and the item's current restock threshold are both zero (or less) 
and it has been more than 30 minutes since the item was last bought... 
then bump the stock available up to a positive number! 

Which isn't pretty, but the jist is that the item's stock will eventually fall to zero. An item will restock when its stock and restock thresholds are both zero.

Each time any item in that shop is bought we'll call a function that'll decrease the restock threshold of every item in that shop whose current stock is equal to zero. Rarer items you want to restock less often should have greater restock thresholds.

In addition, every hour, the item's restock threshold will diminish by 1 every hour - this will be determined on page load of viewing shop, calculated from the last time the item was bought.

Does this sound feasible?
Please do not contact me. I cannot offer tech support on any coding I've done prior to 2018.
