AS02 - Change Asset master Record

Updated May 18, 2018

AS02 - Change Asset master Record


1- You can change various fields of the asset master data even after the asset master is created.


Certain assignments during the life cycle of an asset change frequently, and therefore a record should be kept of the changes, both for reporting and for valuation needs. Examples are the assignment of an asset to a cost center, or multiple-shift usage of an asset during a certain time period.
You can store the following assignments with different time intervals:
1) Cost center 2) Plant  3) Cost order
Data is stored in an unbroken sequence showing the exact day, with a "valid from" and "valid to" date. When you access a master record, the time-dependent data valid for the date of the request is displayed. If the assignment is different in other time periods, this is designated by a history indicator after the field. Using the "Field breakdown" function, you display the entries for a given field at the different intervals.
