Hi,

It is usually a physical object that you will want to manage. You will want to manage maintenance and repair, possibly also need to move it or install it at particular locations. You can record usage of the equipment and maintain measuring counters assigned to it. Various other functions are possible - link to a asset, control warranty, gather statistics, etc.

Good information is available here:

EquipemntDefinition

Equipment encompasses objects such as vehicles, equipment, machinery, scaffolding, shuttering and tools that have to be sent and managed. These objects can belong to all branches of industry.

Engineering, construction, aircraft and road traffic objects and so on.

Use:-

Equipment can be classified as Performance-Based Equipment or Time-Based Equipment.

Create an equipment master record if:

· you want to add equipment to stock for the first time.

· You can perform the following activities for equipment:

· send it directly from a warehouse/storage location to a usage site (construction site or funcational location). This is referred to as an acquisition.

· send it from usage site to usage site.

· change the activity type of the equipment (equipment remains on the same usage site).

· withdraw the equipment from usage (retirement). You may want to do this, for example, if the equipment is sold, if the rental agreement has expired or if the equipment is scrapped.

The commissioning time of equipment at one usage site is documented using Shipping and Performance-Based Equipment Documents.

Structure

The equipment master record contains several types of data:

· General data

Fixed, time-independent data that tends not to change with time, for example, equipment category or equipment type.

· ETM-Specific Data

Time-dependent data that can change throughout the period of time that the equipment is in use, for example, owner or administrator, the PM order (that acts as cost collector or account assignment object for the equipment).

If you want the historical data to be updated, you have to make the appropriate Customizing settings in the SAP Implementation Guide under Plant Maintenance and Customer Service -> Master Data in Plant Maintenance and Customer Service-> Technical Objects---> Equipment ---> Equipment Usage Period ---> Usage History Update and Define History-Related Fields or under Plant Maintenance ® Equipment and Technical Objects ---> Technical Objects -

-


>- Equipment ---> Equipment Usage Period ---> Usage history update and Define history-relevant fields.

Hi

Equipment i sused to represent independent central individual objects for which a history is to be created for the purposes of Plant Maintenance or Customer Service.

Equipment can be independent individual objects (such as callipers, valve etc.) or an installed aggregate at a functional location (such as Compressor, Generator, Motor etc.).

Equipment category is used to define, describe and control objects that are fundamentally different (e.g. vehicles, customer equipments, machines etc.)

Hi,

To put it in simple terms,

Any Material sold to a customer for whihc you need to provide service becomes your equipment. The Customers premises becomes the functional locations. The equipment spare parts are defined as materials & attached to the equipmet either as material BOM/ Equipment BOM.

Cheers,
