Our business requirement was such that we can do preventive maintenance of IT assets and keep track of the cost too.
For that we created Equipments and link to Assets (from AS01) in Equipment Master data. We kept extra data on Equipment too by using classification based on object type like Routers, Servers, Switches, UPS, Storage etc. and it works. Preventive Plans were created on Equipments too.
New requirement is such that often new parts (for instance for a Server) are procured (like new Hard drive) with specifications like Serial number, capacity, own warranty periods etc. This is then fixed inside the Server. How to make this new part as part of the master Equipment with its own details when ever any new part is acquired for main Equipment for any object type?
