I am not going to be developing a database, I am looking at a way to manage the stock from when we get it in to when we send them out. I want to create a SOP that covers classification of machines for use or disposal, labeling for mointering movements ect I agree a database would be a good idea but unless we decide on how to manage and label the incoming stock we wont be able to enter it in. I know we give machines numbers now but that is after they have been tested and are ready to install the OS on to.
