Issue 386: Functional identity of E24 Physical Man Made Thing

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

In the 41st joined meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9 and the 34th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, the sig resolving the issue 191, reviewed the Martin' proposal and accepted that

"the identity and coming into existence of a Physical Man-made thing must not be bound to the fact of an accidental or intentional Modification of any microscale - this can adequately be described as adding a man-made feature to the thing (and if not, it is indeed a production), but must be tied to the functional identity of the thing, in the same way we describe it for aggregates"

The sig  decided to  open a new issue for keeping track the discussion about modification of the scope note of E24 and P31  in order to be harmonized with Martin's proposal.
