1. Scope
1.1 This practice covers standardizing practice and termi- nology related to information conveying the mobility of tangible property. 1.2 This practice describes a graduated index depicting in a standard manner the mobility of tangible property, assigning a standard name and index number to each. The index ranges from indiscernible to immovable. The mobility index ranges from MI 0 for non-discernible items to MI 10 for real property. 1.3 While examples are given of items that may be associ- ated with a particular mobility index number, the intent of this practice does not include rigid prescriptive assignment ofitems or types of items to specific mobility indexes. Individual entities may make their own assignments based on their judgment unless or until standard practice based on experience using this practice emerges. 1.4 In conjunction with Practice E2608, entities may base decisions on control classes and control classes in whole or in part based on the mobility indices of the items. 1.5 In conjunction with Practice E2132, entities may de- velop their physical inventory plans for classes of items based in whole or in part on the mobility indices of the items. 1.6 In conjunction with Practice E2131, entities may ana- lyze and report their loss, damage, and destruction experience based in whole or in part on the mobility indices of the items. 1.7 There is no existing, recognized practice for recording, discussing, and comparing mobility information. 1.8 This practice is designed to be applicable and appropri- ate for all tangible property-holding entities. 1.9 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.10 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
4. Significance and Use
4.1 Establish a standard notational and conversational ap- proach to tangible property mobility and related information to enable precision in requirements and results related to move- ment and tracking. 4.2 Foster and enable additional standard practices related to or based on mobility practice and information.
5. Tangible Property Mobility Index
5.1 Mobility Index (MI): 5.1.1 MI0: Non-Discernible Items—Items for which move- ment is not visible or discernible because of its size or other characteristics. MI 0 is one theoretical end point ofthe mobility index. 5.1.2 MI1: Discernible Items—Items for which movement is not visible because of its size or other characteristics but for which movement is discernible. Examples of MI 1 items include airborne gases and particles and nanotechnology items. 5.1.3 MI2: Bulk Items—Items for which movement is visible and that are normally moved in bulk. Examples of MI 2 items include computer chips and screws. 5.1.4 MI3: Personal Items—Items that are normally and easily carried by people on their person for use or transporta- tion purposes, for example, in a pocket or purse. Examples of MI 3 items include memory sticks, mobile telephones, and personal digital assistants (PDAs). 5.1.5 MI4: Portable Items—Items that are too large to be normally and easily carried by people on their person for use or transportation purposes but that are designed or intended to be carried or easily moved. Examples of MI 4 items include laptop computers and portable oscilloscopes. 5.1.6 MI5: Personally Moveable Items—Items that are normally moved by individuals but that are typically larger and heavier than portable items. Examples of MI 5 items include desktop computers and displays. 5.1.7 MI6: Items Personally Moveable with Mechanical Assistance—Items beyond personally moveable items that are moved by individuals with normally available means of mechanical assistance, such as hand trucks or dollies. Ex- amples of MI 6 items include small industrial equipment and fixtures. 5.1.8 MI7: Self-Locomoting Items—Items that are designed and built with a power source to enable movement from place to place. Examples ofMI 7 items include aircraft, vehicles, and ships.
