School science laboratories contain a plethora of equipment and apparatus, tools, consumable items, learning aids, and chemicals that require management. Management tasks include storage of items, being able to find them, accounting for them, performing stocktakes, ordering new and replacement stock, maintaining class sets, dangerous goods lists etc.

SciList provides school science technologists with a tool to perform these tasks and allows general staff to view and print lists via the network. SciList maintains a list of all stock held by the science department. The stock can be organised by location, e.g. a room, and by sub-location e.g. a specific shelf in the room.

Stock can be grouped into one or more categories, e.g. glassware, electrical, junior science, consumables. Stock can also be grouped into one or more disciplines e.g. Physics, Chemistry.

Equipment used solely by the laboratory staff can be listed in Prep Gear and is not visible to general staff, but still available for stocktake.

Stock items can include a description and a photo.

SciList can perform a keyword search to locate specific items.

For stocktaking, SciList provides tick sheets of stock items listed by location or category with expected quantities. Actual quantities can be entered into SciList which can then produce written orders for restocking.

Orders received can be marked off, so outstanding orders can be easily seen. SciList remembers suppliers, product codes and prices of stock items so re-ordering is simplified. Chemicals have trigger levels set. At stocktake, chemicals below their trigger levels are flagged for re-ordering.

SciList provides Supervisor and Operator levels of access. Operators are usually general staff who require view-only access to most data. However, the Supervisor may change their privileges if desired.
