A Note about Classification / Specification of Rotating Asset in Maximo

For rotating assets, classification cannot be edited from the assets application as the classification field becomes read-only. Instead, classification of a rotating asset could be set from associated rotating item screen. This ensures that all rotating assets with a particular rotating item number have the same classification.

When classification of a rotating item is changed, following updates are automatically done on associated rotating assets:

  1. The new classification is updated on associated rotating assets.
  2. All attributes and their values in the specification tab are cleared and new attribute list is loaded based on the new classification.
Note that the classification field becomes read-only for rotating assets but the attribute list on the specification tab is still editable. Attribute values can be changed, new attributes can defined and existing ones can be deleted.
