Create of simillar Fixed Assets

Hi experts;

     I have an issue at my company sounds little bit new for me and I am not actually sure whether it even can be handled on SAP or not.

The issue is:

we purchase kind of Fixed Assets called ((Metal Carriers)) such metal carriers are purchased in huge amounts 10,000 meters and each one costs 1000 SAR. So total of Fixed Assets amount will be 10,000 X 1000 = 10,000,000 SAR.

Then we issue such Fixed Assets from inventory for each project upon the project manager's request, some one can ask for 10 meters another project manager can ask for 30 meters and so on.

The point in the issue:

It is very very hard to handle such Assets one by one, in another words if we created 10,000 Fixed Assets on system that will be pretty tough to be tracked  in addition I don't know even how can we create them as similar assets because the filed of similar asset is only 3 digits so maximum number will be 999.

And at same time we cannot create the 10,000 meters as one Asset because as explained that we cut such Metal Carriers by meter and distribute them across different projects and one can be broken or stolen and the rest are yet is service so I cannot manage them as one Fixed Asset.

The Question is:

Can someone kindly advice how can we manage such scenario on SAP?

Is there any feature on SAP allows us to handle huge number of similar Fixed Assets one by one but to collapse all line items in one line item and to appear in reports in one line item by total and expand them upon need?

Thanks in advance;

Kind regards;

Ahmad Mahmud;
