setup relationship between equipments

Hello all,

not sure if PM module can handle this issue or not.

we maintain Computers and Softwares as equipment and also assets. we are trying to find a way to setup links between Computers and Softwares ( either in PM module or Asset Module), what we want is to easily get the list of softwares installed on a computer, and a computer list that a software has been installed on.

Thanks a lot

Norva

    hi

    1. install the software equipments in the computer (Parent ) and you can get the list of software installed IH03, but you cannot able to get the list of computer which the software is installed.( since installing superior equipment to subordinate is 1:1)

    Alternative

    create computer as equipments , whereas software as materials , create BOM for the equipment and then you can get both the required report

      To assign software to a computer, it won't work for my issue, because one software (equipment) can only be assigned to one computer(equipment). actually software can be installed to many computers.

      as to the BOM, the software need to be maintained as a material, is it easy to maintain a material as an asset?

      thank you for the reply.

    Hello,

    I think you should define computers as equipments, and create a multi-value characteristc in equipment classifcation to entry all softwares installed on the computer.

    The list of the softwares used in your company can be defined as the list of authorized values for this new characteristic.

    Hope this new idea can help !
