The publication explains that an entity applying the new revenue standard is required to identify a performance obligation by determining whether a promised good or service is (1) capable of being distinct and (2) distinct within the context of the contract. If the promised good or service does not meet both of these requirements, it must be combined with other goods or services promised in the contract until there is a combination of goods or services that meets the requirements.
