Representing Physical resources

Hi, we develop software used in research laboratories. We’d like to be able to represent laboratory equipment as (enterprise) resources so we can plan workstreams based on their availability; either from estimations (this project will take 50% of a machine for this task) or constraints such as maintenance periods. I’ve seen a thread on planning manufacture with Asana (Using ASANA in Manufacturing Industry) but wonder if that much customisation is still needed?
