An IfcPropertyDependencyRelationship describes an identified dependency between the value of one property and that of another.
Whilst the IfcPropertyDependencyRelationship may be used to describe the dependency, and it may do so in terms of the expression of how the dependency operates, it is not possible through the current IFC model for the value of the related property to be actually derived from the value of the relating property. The determination of value according to the dependency is required to be performed by an application that can then use the Expression attribute to flag the form of the dependency.
A name used to identify or qualify the relationship.
A description that may apply additional information about the relationship.
