Optimal Corp Blueprint Library Organization?

I’m aiming to establish a blueprint library for my corporation, ensuring it’s accessible for member use. This isn’t my first rodeo with setting up a corporate blueprint library, but my previous experience taught me the complexity involved, notably the extensive voting required to lock down blueprints for security. From what I remember, once blueprints are locked, they’re pretty much immovable, making initial organization crucial to avoid future headaches.

I’m reaching out for insights from those who’ve successfully navigated these waters. Specifically, I’m interested in:

  1. Hangar Organization: I’m looking for effective hangar setups that facilitate copying, using, and researching blueprints. Considering the requirements for building (blueprints, inputs, and outputs) and the additional variables for invention, how have you arranged your hangars?
  2. Container Logistics: For those using containers within hangars for extra organization, what naming conventions or sorting criteria have you found to streamline blueprint access? What container sizes are optimal, and is there a real need for audit containers?
  3. Blueprint Security: Is there truly no way to simplify the process of securing a blueprint library? Are there alternative methods to permit blueprint usage without the need to lock them down permanently? I am happy to forever keep the blueprints securely locked in my preferred NPC station after getting it set up.
  4. Permissions and Access: What are the best practices you’ve employed to set permissions for efficient blueprint utilization, including for invention, copying, and research?
  5. Additional Insights: Any further advice, tools, or personal experiences on blueprint library management would be invaluable. How do you monitor usage, streamline the copying process, and ensure the library remains a significant asset for your corporation’s industrial efforts?

I appreciate your time and insights on making this blueprint library a cornerstone of our corporation’s industrial strategy.

Thank you!
