EAOS – Asset Information Posters

The posters will remain in the hallway opposite Toolcrib for the next 2 weeks.  The purpose of the posters is to determine what information on systems and equipment  is needed so that we can effectively operate and maintain campus building assets. Once this is complete we will know WHAT information is necessary to collect.

We have started to work on  a plan on HOW to collect this information. Stay tuned for details and ways you can get involved.

Thanks to those who have already provided feedback onto the posters.
