Measured Value is a field on the Condition Category recordset under an asset's Inspection recordset. It represents the inspected value for each condition category. When a star is selected during an inspection, the system looks at the index mappings for that condition category to determine the Index for that inspected condition category. The measured value is the number of stars (0-5) that represents the condition of the asset for that condition category.

With the Advanced Assets Extension, when a measured value is selected/entered during an inspection, the system looks at the index mappings for that condition category to determine the Index for that inspected condition category.

The value of the Measured Value field depends on the condition category type:

#### 5 Star

• The measured value is the number of stars (0-5) that represents the condition of the asset for that condition category.

#### Index

• The measured value is the number entered (0-100) that represents the condition of the asset for that condition category.
• There are no index mappings for this Type, so the measured value sets the Index with the same number.

#### Number

• The measured value can be any positive or negative number that falls within the bounds of the Index Mappings for the condition category.
• If the number is not specifically mapped in the Index Mappings but falls within the bounds, the system uses the existing index mappings and interpolates an Index.

#### Quantity

• The measured value can be any positive or negative amount including a unit, that falls within the bounds of the Index Mappings for the condition category.
• The unit can be the default or a convertible unit. If a convertible unit is selected, the system converts it to the default unit to determine the Index based on the Index Mappings, however, the selected unit is saved on the Inspection.
• If the number is not specifically mapped in the Index Mappings but falls within the bounds, the system uses the existing index mappings and interpolates an Index.
• An example of a Quantity type condition category where the Unit Category is Temperature and the Default Unit is C for Celsius, but the inspection is recorded in Fahrenheit:
• All Index Mappings are created as Celsius.
• During the inspection, the measured value is set to 77 F. The system converts this measured value to 25 C to determine the inspected Index based on the Index Mappings.

#### Option

• The measured value can only be one of the Index Mapping values.

If there are no Index Mappings for a Condition Category that requires them, a warning indicator displays in edit mode of the Inspection.
