    • If you are in EHP7 a business function LOG_EAM_LAM is there which addresses this zone. See this Linear Asset Management
    • If the functions are not complex, then you can address this through conventional SAP-PM, i.e., by creating Pipelines between segments as Equipments. It might be so required that, you may have to create some physical markings on the Pipe line routes to create Manageable Equipments. This is in case the present segment lengths are too long.
    • As said above, you can use Object links (tcode IN01,02,03), to connect two segments through system if you have any such requirements. Otherwise they can act as individual equipment just like our Equipment structure. In my view through proper structuring (FLocns and Equipments) of the Pipe lines, the Object link can be made redundant in this case.
    • If you want to map all the pipe-line branches in micro details then Object links might be required the end-point of which will be that Equipment (non-pipeline) which your pipeline serves.

    ERP Tech,

    You can use equipment in conjunction with object links.

    Otherwise, you could classify the equipment to hold the additional data.
