A model is composed of four building blocks that all assets associated with this model have in common.
To create a model:
- Enter (or import) the manufacturer and category for the asset.
- Once the category and manufacturer are in place, the model is created by navigating to the Asset tab and clicking on Create Model on the shortcut menu.
- Add a model name in the short description field and a model number (usually the manufacturer’s model or part number) in the model field.
- Click Save.
For step-by-step instructions on how to import these parameters, see “How do I import data?” For additional information on how a model fits into creating a unique asset record, see the new user orientation.
