This article will discuss several aspects of the accounting computer equipment, which in the opinion of the author, are most important. The first thing to do – to determine what problems should be solved with the help of accounting. I think there are three main issues which must meet records – "What?" "Where?" And "When". Ie we need to know what equipment we have, where it is located, and what events had happened 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 – accounting program must have the tools retrieve data about the equipment 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 placement of storage equipment. For example, in one of the programs to specify the location of the equipment has fields "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 receive information about events connected with the equipment. In its simplest form is the presence in the program history.
