A key purpose of CATS is track the locations of the equipment and which peice is connected to which.  This may be simply done by grouping the different pieces of equipment and assigning them to a location on the Equipment Groups and Locations Screen.  Location can be an office or persons name or classroom. 

Assignment to groups is easy as all the unassigned items appear in the drop down list ready to ‘connect’ to the other pieces of equipment.
