Diagnostic Statement

Problem Statement
succinct, one-sentence description
In the face of limited resources, spaces could use sensor/automation tools to help them manage the space, provide important communications to members and guests, and evaluate impact.
Category
broad category of impact
Impacted Groups or Individuals
list of those impacted by problem (organize with largest impact top)
  • Group object (165)
  • Group object (166)
  • Group object (167)
Benefit of Solving the Problem
description of positive potential
  • Guests and visitors would witness a more efficient, happier community at work, and thus be more interested in joining and/or taking advantage of space resources
  • Members would benefit from increased communication on tool/space access, more efficient workflows
  • Admins would have tasks lifted from workload, and be able to focus on other important work. Simultaneously, they would be able to provide effective management of the space, its resources and functions
Known Barriers
those things which would prevent success of a future solution
  • Hardware (IoT sensors, etc) are in their infancy as an industry, so there’s a lot of chaos and competing ‘standards’
  • Commercial systems are often a make-or-break time, and when it’s best to establish functional practices.
  • Existing, often commercial software solutions are expensive, keeping them out of the hands of spaces in their early stages
Potential Collaborators
list of those interested in helping to solve this problem
  • Developers in makerspaces that are sitting in the middle of the problems, who are therefore better equipped to create solutions tailored to the actual needs.
