Splat Space has accumulated a lot of valuable inventory over the last few months. This Saturday, our mission is to organize and track our inventory, and reduce our load of unused materials.
We have several goals to accomplish on Saturday. We will be there most of the day cleaning, so PLEASE stop by if you are passionate about the organization and usefulness of the space! If you're a member, this especially concerns you! Our general goals are as follows:
- To make the space more useful for members by decluttering, organizing, and clearly marking inventory that is available for use by all Splat Space members
- To come up with a system for organizing and tracking current inventory so we can best utilize Splat Space resources
- To provide shelving and dedicated space for in progress projects and member storage of items that are either CURRENTLY IN USE or AVAILABLE FOR USE BY ALL MEMBERS
- To free up additional workspace by recycling unusable materials or materials that are wasting space (by setting them aside in a ?staging area? where members can come and reclaim materials before we recycle them for good.)
Materials that we agree are not useful to the space will be set aside at a staging area and available to be claimed by the next official board meeting on Tuesday, December 7th.
We will be discussing our new process for collecting and tracking inventory at our board meeting on December 7th and through our Google Discussion group at http://groups.google.com/a/durham-makerspace
-- Directions for adding inventory to the space will be posted at the entrance of Splat Space, on the bulletin board. Due to the shared nature of a hackerspace, the general idea behind accumulating inventory is that **if you bring something into the space, it should be useful and available for use by all members OR currently in use as a part of one of your projects**
More details about this system will be worked out, and your input is important in coming up with the process. For now, we would really appreciate your help in this initial step of decluttering!
