Do the function names follow a sensible, predictable naming convention?

Suppose you had a product that used a set of physically similar keys, or usb fobs, to unlock certain functions. The keys or fobs were identified for function by stickers in predefined colors, and function name. Now,suppose that the next gen of your product included up to 100 distinct instances of each unlockable thing.

I could offer some motherhood/apple-pie "best practices" for managing all these dozens, or hundreds of nearly- identical keys or fobs, but I wanted to suggest at least one helpful product or piece that could be offered - or bundled with the main product, to suggest that we had given some serious thought to the problems inherent in scaling up the product.

I thought of plastic trays with multiple compartments, with individual hinged lids -like the on-steroids version of the weekly pill organizer that old folks (and others) use. That could fit in a safe, maybe. Another option might be a board/rack with a hundred hooks, like the super in a multi-unit apartment might keep in her/his office.

Probably I'm overlooking the obvious. What might that be?
