IFC (IFC4X3_ADD2) under development IfcRelAssignsToActor Semantic definition

The objectified relationship IfcRelAssignsToActor handles the assignment of objects (subtypes of IfcObject) to an actor (subtypes of IfcActor).

The IfcRelAssignsToActor objectified relationship defines a relationship between an IfcActor and one or many objects. A particular role of the actor played in that relationship can be associated. If specified, it takes priority over the role that may be directly assigned to the person or organization.

Reference to the objects (or single object) on which the actor acts upon in a certain role (if given) is specified in the inherited RelatedObjects attribute. Entity inheritance Attributes
