Please firsrt of all list out all the asset details.
Give the asset some numeric sequence
create a unique identity with first 1 digit for notify whether the asset of Minor or Major. i.e. 1 for Minor & 4 for Major asset
Second digit for whether it is for electrical, mechanical, civil, medical, thermal and whatever if you can. If you can segregate into more than 9 categories fix the digit as second and third for category of asset.
3 to 5 digit for the identity of the asset like Tractor, Truck, Jeep, Car,
Fix last 4 or 5 digits for particular instrument, vehicle, equipment or whatever it may be.
You can mark this 8 or 10 digit number in all your assets either minor or major which can only be identified by the concerned dealing personnels.
If you use alphabetic letters it will give confussion and sometimes in urgency you may omit some assets while listing.
Hope this will be sufficient for your guidance.
With warm regards
111 for DG Set
112 for Airconditioner

Material codification is a big exercise. For this first you need to have codification policy. Later you need to make codification team. This team comprises technical, procurement, admin professionals.
As far as maintaining fixed assets is concerned, you may refer this forum for "Fixed Asset Register". You will get some 2-3 formats. However, now a days advance software are available for codification. In fact any software for store will have facility for codification as well.
Frankly speaking your stores should handle this codification job and also maintenance of fixed assets. Being from HR, how come you got into this?
Nevertheless, let me caution to on codification. Please be careful while designing codes. Any half job may give you more work and headache at later stage.
