What is a fabrication or fabricated equipment?

Fabricated Equipment is defined as scientific or other complex equipment comprised of two or more individual components that are fabricated/built into a single functional unit.

All components in the fabrication must function as a singular unit and be collectively disposed of at the end of the fabricated asset’s useful life.
