Advantage/ disadvantage Asset sub number & asset super number


I do not really understand what are the advantages from the asset sub number compare to the asset super number.

The only point for me is that a sub-number asset can inherit some informations from the principal asset.

For me there is no difference for example for the depreciation.

Can someone help me?

Thank you very much

    i only know the case of sub-no:

    classical example is :

    1) car = main number

    2) accessory like radio receiver or navigation system = sub-number

    and both have different asset classes and life time

      Thanks Gudmundur.

      To resume :

      - the asset super number is just a group, to organize the data

      - the sub number is a way to decompose an asset. This way is more binding because of the asset class (for me the asset class is the same between the main asset and the sub asset; contrary in my first obtained response).
