Automatic Creation of Asset/Equipment Master by Synchronization – S/4HANA Plant Maintenance(Asset Management)

This blog presents the required configuration for the auto generation of Asset Master when an Equipment Master is created and vice versa.

In SPRO we will go to Asset accounting-> Master data-> Automatic creation of equipment master records


We will choose asset class 2000 “machinery”.
In the next window of asset class, we will select the appropriate Equipment category. For this demo I will select M ‘Machines’.

We well select direct synchronization after saving in both drop downs.

Now we will create an Equipment through IE01. Equipment category will be M.

As we have selected category M which corresponds to the settings in customization, thus the Asset field gets grayed out as it will be generated automatically.

As we saved the equipment the asset was automatically created and is shown in display window AS03. We can also double check the link between Asset and Equipment through the following path in ‘More’ dropdown.

Equipment master has generated Asset master and both of them have been linked.

Now we will try it from the opposite direction, by creating the Asset First through AS01. We will use the asset class 2000 as the customization was done on this.

Enter the description and the cost center then Save. As we save, the Equipment master is automatically generated.

We can also double check the link between Asset and Equipment through the following path in ‘More’ dropdown.

Asset master has generated Equipment master and both of them have been linked.


If you have any queries please feel free to ask.

      Would it be possible to get the Equipment Acquisition value and Unit updated after Asset Creation?

      Thanks for the share, although this document is great I am having an issue when I create an asset, the equipment isn't created.

      Thank you Muhammad. Is it possible to set a value, so that a certain asset class can ONLY be created through an equipment and not through asset accounting?
