Adding an Asset Model

To create a BioMed asset, you will first need to configure risk assessment for your assets, add PM templates, and add an asset model. You will use the asset model to create your assets, so that the data for each of your similar assets is standardized, limiting the risk of faulty or incomplete data.

How to Add an Asset Model

  • Click on Asset Models in the navigation menu. This will open the Asset Models dashboard.
  • Click on New Model in the navigation menu.

General

Attachments

The Attachments panel is a useful way to provide any attachments that should be present on assets created from this model. A great example for how to use this would be to attach the manual for this model, so that each asset created has a copy of the manual already attached.

 

     The Dude Says:

If you would like to provide technical documentation for your asset models, you can use IFIXIT and add a "From URL" attachment to provide a direct link to the manual for this model.
