Standard Practice for Identification and Categorization of Tooling
|Publication Date:||1 December 2009|
|ICS Code (Characteristics and design of machines, apparatus, equipment):||21.020|
This practice describes the differentiation, identification, and categorization criteria for tooling, both unique and more general in nature. The physical markings should allow for one or more of the following to be ascertained: part number, serial number, ownership, revision, or symbology, or combination thereof.
Definitions for the unique subcategories that make up the tooling family will be described. These subcategories help to differentiate tooling categories for use in identification, control, and record keeping.
This practice is intended to be applicable and appropriate for all entities that hold tooling regardless of ownership or acquisition methodology. This practice further provides the detailed information to provide the flexibility of common nomenclature, identification, and tracking of unique tooling.
Items not covered but defined by this practice include, but are not limited to: consumable property, special test equipment (STE), plant equipment, general or special machinery equipment, and expendable tools.
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 appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
