This project is to explore asset tracking tags for important Hive13 assets to accomplish:

  • Uniquely Identify the asset with a tracking number
  • Provide a consistent basis to audit the inventory of assets
  • Use the tracking number as a QR link to the asset on the wiki.

Hive13 needs to report assets to the state of Ohio on an annual basis.

Project Strategy

  • Explored what it takes to create QR links for 100+ tools on the wiki
    • Generated links to pre-generated QR codes was a problem, but the team solved it by creating Tag pages to record the connection between QR code, tag number and the asset wiki page.
    • The cost of custom asset tags is roughly >4X the off the shelf price > Print yourself tags.
      • So we printed them.
