Components View

The Components view displays immediate components of specific assets. The parent asset record appears in the Asset form, while the parent asset's child components appear in the Components list below. The sub-components of these components do not appear in the list. To view the sub-components of a child component, drill down on the Asset # field and click the Components view tab.

For example, asset A has a component asset B, which in turn has a sub-component asset C. The Component list for asset A displays only asset B. To view asset C, drill down on the Asset # field for asset B and click the Components view tab. Asset C is displayed in asset B's Component list.

You can build a hierarchy of assets by defining each level in the hierarchy as a component. Components are themselves individual assets that must exist before being included in component relationships. Component relationships are defined in the Transactions view.
