A system made up of many components was set up as a single asset in the database. Later, part of the system became obsolete and needed to be disposed of, but the remaining system was still useable. This change was reported to the Capital Asset Office property accountant. The accountant used the Asset Global document to split the payment transactions to create a new asset for the surplus parts (that is, the parts to be disposed of). Then the accountant retired the new asset from the database.
