When you try to change the service provider for these shipments, an error message is thrown:

2007-07-06 13:52:33.437 315305 Error Exception Failed to calculate number of

1. The equipment group shouldn't be mandatory when an equipment AND equipment reference unit is defined, since the equipment is already tied to an equipment group. The ambiguity is already provided.

2. If it is mandatory, it should be red-stared in the shipment UI and it should be impossible to 'finish' a shipment without it.
