I am a beginner in CIM.
In our company we use a classification called Asset class for asset maintenance, e.g. Power Transformer, current transformer, oil filled breaker, air breaker, potential transformer etc. It is the highest classification of electrical assets in our company (real assets not PSR). Then we have three levels for the assets hierarchy:
Asset Class (Power Transformer, 5 types of breakers, current transformer, etc.)
Asset Type (asset with same manufacturer same model)
Individual assets (linked to Asset type).
I don't see direct classification in CIM like this. However, we do have a class "Asset" which is same as our Assets. There is ProductAssetModel which is equivalent to our asset type. There is no higher classification I can see. But there is a kind attribute in Asset which is based on enumeration AssetKind. This enumeration contains proper asset class level values.
Can we use this attribute to distinguish the asset class. Is this proper usage of the model?
