This article will address several aspects of accounting computer equipment, which in the opinion of the author, are most important. The first thing to do – decide what tasks should be solved with the help of accounting. I believe there are three main issues which must meet record – "What?", "Where?" And "When?". Ie we need to know what equipment we have, where it is located, and which events are happening to him. "What?" Or the ability to obtain information on the composition of the equipment. In most cases it is necessary to have data on specific models equipment or even on specific types of equipment – a program accounting should have the tools retrieve data about the hardware on its type or on specific models. "Where?" Or to receive information about placing equipment. This is an important point.
Most programs offer a rigid scheme of data storage equipment placement. For example, in one of the programs to specify the location of equipment provided for the field "branch" and "Location." Ie a two-tier structure. This structure is sufficient for small organization. If you have dozens of branches in the company of several offices in each, the two-level structure is clearly enough. Unfortunately, almost all considered by the author of the program are two-or three-tier structure. If you need to register both the equipment in a large organization, then this issue should be given careful attention. "When?" Or to obtain information on events related to the equipment. In the simplest case is the presence in the program history.
