Dynamic Hardware Inventory

This may be a stupid question, but is it possible for Ciscoworks to be an effective Hardware Master Inventory repository.

90% of our devices are on the network on a day to day basis, and as such we have an accurate 90% inventory of our network at a given point.

10% of our network devices are on-the-shelf spares in various locations around the company.

Is it possible to enter these devices into Ciscoworks (RME?)in a on-the-shelf or pre-deployed state, thus preventing the likes of DFM from flagging a spare device as being down.

I may be overlooking something obvious, but in essence I would like Ciscoworks to be my full Hardware Inventory Database.
