Raju,

Actual equipment are the physical items that you maintain e.g. pumps, motors, valves, etc.

Dummy equipment are not usually single physical items (as described above). Examples may be Ancilliary Equipment, Unspecified Equipment, Unknown Equipment, etc..

Hi,

Actual Eqpt/F.Location is a Physical Item, we can maintain seperate maintenance task, Maintenance History...

Reference Eqpt/F.Location is not a Physical Item.

Hi,

If you are not using total refurbishement process, but you want track whether the equipment is a stores or vendor, then you create two functional location based on above criteria , and dismantle the equipment from it's superior functional location and assign dummy functional location. So that you have track with respect to this.
