How do you manage your M.Hakerspace access to your members ?
What about the access to the equipment ?
Accessibility and maintenance system is always a burning question.

All makerspaces have different approaches for its management of the shared resources. Some are using ready made management apps like FABMAN, others are trying to configure their own solutions or just improvising and compiling several freeware products like Google calendar, slack and so on.

Smart fablab Sofia (SFL) and Hackerspace Liège (HSL) decided to develop their own platform-website, booking, user and machine management application. What is the result, plus-minus objectives, further goals and possibilities.

The workshop has the aim to present solution already developed by SFL and HSL and some other workable applications, brainstorming over the different management scenarios and provide ideas for custom made solutions.

The workshop members would help the app's to become better and if they like it, they could become early adopters. For those willing to make their own and very custom app, the workshop will help to clear and strengthen their ideas and goals. The work flow consist of 3 steps: - maping and discussing the needs and the challenges for managing a shared machinery space; - overview of existing tools and platforms for organising the fablab life + discussion; - brainstorming and creation of modular managment system from scratch and working over up to 3 case studies of diferent scale makerspaces. Our team is ready to cooperate with other fablabs for improving the concept and the content of the workshop.

This workshop, will gather experience M.Hackers and other participants currently developing their own solutions to share experiences and make a further step together.
