What is the Functionality Between FA and eAM when the Assets are Linked?

(Doc ID 304238.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Asset Management - Version 11.5.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Please explain the link functionality between eAM asset and FA asset.
   
Specifically, what type of asset management can be utilized with the link created.  There is some indication that this link will allow for improved asset life cycle management but there is no extra information on that functionality.
    
Also, if an asset is de-activated/retired in eAM but has been linked to an asset from FA, will the deactivation in eAM retire the asset in FA and also send a notification of this change? If so, is this automatic?  Is a workflow setup needed?
