Siebel Field Service Guide > Assets > Assets Screen >
The Relationships view records backup assets for a primary asset and assets that depend on the operation of a primary asset.
An example of a dependent asset is a hospital power system; hospital medical equipment is dependent on the power system. By checking this view, the engineer can tell what other assets may be affected by a defective asset. The field service engineer can then take steps to make sure that no unintended disruptions occur. In this example, the engineer would make sure that the medical equipment was switched to the backup power supply before down taking the primary power supply.
