Lemma 20.45.3. Let $(X, \mathcal{O}_ X)$ be a ringed space. Let $E$ be an object of $D(\mathcal{O}_ X)$. Assume that all stalks $\mathcal{O}_{X, x}$ are local rings. Then the following are equivalent

  1. $E$ is perfect,

  2. there exists an open covering $X = \bigcup U_ i$ such that $E|_{U_ i}$ can be represented by a finite complex of finite locally free $\mathcal{O}_{U_ i}$-modules, and

  3. there exists an open covering $X = \bigcup U_ i$ such that $E|_{U_ i}$ can be represented by a finite complex of finite free $\mathcal{O}_{U_ i}$-modules.

Proof. This follows from Lemma 20.45.2 and the fact that on $X$ every direct summand of a finite free module is finite locally free. See Modules, Lemma 17.14.6. $\square$
