    Hi Ashu,

    As far as i have seen there is no categorization in standard SAP other than the system status. But the system status will have a different meaning

    AVLB - Equipment is available for use

    INST - Equipment is installed to a functional location

    ASEQ - Allocated to Superior Equipment

    ESTO - Equipment is available in the Warehouse

    If you want to specify the equipment status for Erection / Commissioning, then you can make use of User Status.

    Hello Ashu,

    Usually Technical Objects are created after commissioning and put into regular operations only. If you are having to create these under the project stage itself, then these have to be addressed using different tools provided. The main tool being Status Profile (OIOB) as said before. Like, you will have an initial user-status such as PROJ with Description such as under Erection. Then in the profile itself you will use Transaction controls to specify what all business functions are allowed and what are forbidden under this user-status.

    If every such requirement is not fulfilled in OIOB (often it is the case), then use exits

    • IEQM0003 (to restrict changes to Equipment master)
    • QQMA0014 (to restrict Notification creation on such Equipments)
    • IWO10018 (to restrict Order creation on them)

    There is a finance term Assets Under Construction. You may go through these links to see whether they are relevant to your situation.Assets Under Construction1.

    You have plenty such in Goolge search with string 'Sap Assets under Construction'

    Good luck
