Registering a New Asset

1.1 New Asset

Through the "Assets" tab in the platform's main menu, you can import your asset hierarchy, specifying locations, assets, sub-assets, responsible parties, manufacturer information, and other important data for plant monitoring.

To begin the process of registering a new asset, click on "+ Add Asset".

Name your asset first. You can insert an image of your asset and also provide a description.

How to Register Parent Assets

When creating a parent asset in the platform, you need to go to Add Asset and then link it to a location (you also need to fill in all the necessary asset information)

How to Register Sub Assets

After creating your parent assets, you can create sub-assets for them to further detail your asset tree.

After selecting your asset, go to the Sub Assets field and click on Add Sub Asset. You can then add as many sub-assets as needed.

Your sub-assets will appear registered in the asset tree. Remember to complete their registration information.

Another way is to go to first Add Asset and then, in the Asset or Location field, enter the parent asset.

It will appear as a sub-asset in the asset tree.
