Best practice when equipment is in rotation for maintenance


Hi all,

Within a plant already having technical object structure with functional location and equipment attached to it.

Process involved:

An equipment or an assembly (an assembly is attached to equipment and have its own equipment number) is being taken for maintenance in workshop and replaced with another assembly or equipment already prepared.


  1. Should the technical object master data be updated?
  2. Or we can keep using the same equipment number as already available in the technical object structure.
  3. What would be the best practice and impact on employing such practice?


The plant is not implementing serial number.

Thanks in advance.
