Mount a Counter on an Asset

You can add a Counter to an Asset to register, for example, production hours or quantity produced.

  1. On the Asset Card, select Actions > Counter Registration > Mount Counter.
  2. Select the Counter in the Counter No. field. The Counter Category Code is automatically inserted.
  3. In the Posting Date field, select the button to see a list of Counter entries for the selected Counter.
  4. Select the Counter reading you want to use as the starting value for the Counter.
  5. Select OK. The related Reading value is automatically inserted.

Off-Counter Usage

Before you mount a Counter on an Asset, it is possible to set a Counter value on the Asset, which is not related to a Counter in EAM-BC. This is useful if you want to add a Counter value registered in a previous IT system to an Asset, without affecting the readings on a Counter in EAM-BC.

An off-counter value must be registered before you mount a Counter on the Asset.

Example: You created a new Asset (machine) in EAM-BC, which has already run 4,000 hours. You want to register those production hours on the Asset before you mount a Counter.

  1. On the Asset card, select Actions > Counter Registration > Off-Counter Usage.
  2. Select the Counter Category Code, for example "Running Hours".
  3. Select the date for the registration in the Posting Date field.
  4. In the Additional Usage field, enter the value you want to add to the Asset.
  5. Select Yes to save the registration.
