Asset Relationships

Summary: Certain assets can be tied to other assets. A “parent” asset is an asset at a higher level such as an engine. A “child” asset is an asset tied to that parent asset such as a cylinder, gear drive, final drive, etc. This allows users to quickly navigate between assets that have a direct relationship with other assets.
