A child asset is a sub-asset that is attached, or associated with a another parent asset. Examples of the parent to child asset relationship include, a charger (child) for a laptop (parent), a spindle (child) for a CNC lathe (parent), or a water pump (child) for a fish tank (parent).
Below is an example of a parent to child asset relationship. The Scanning Department (child) is part of the Production Facility (parent).
