When purchase lines are marked create new asset, and the items are received and invoiced as new fixed asset only one fixed asset is created, even though the qurantity is more than one. The invoiced quantity is admittedly present on the fixed asset, but in some scenarios there is a need to follow up the fixed assets individually, requiring a split of the fixed asset into assets of quantity=1.
The idea is to create a new parameter on purcahse order line (POL), allowing the received and/or invoiced quantity be split into individual assets.
If such a split has taken place, the reference to the fixed asset number (field on POL should indicate a multiple relation - in the same way as for instance multiple packing slips related to one invoice is indicated.
An inquiry for seeing the multiple fixed assets must be available on the purchase order line.
The alternative to split the POL according to the quantity is not a good workaround, as the vendor will not understand the order, and purchase quantity is important for discount set up in trade/purchase agreements and minimum quantity and quality /test parameters on the item master data.
Note: There are alternative designs, like introducing parent- child assets - and let the PO refer to the parent fixed asset before split into individual fixed assets.
