ABSTRACT This definition may not be instantiated
The association relationship IfcRelAssociates refers to sources of information (most notably a classification, library, document, approval, constraint, or material). The information associated may reside internally or externally of the project data. There is no dependency implied by the association.
Association relationships can be established to objects (occurrences as subtypes of IfcObject) or to types (as subtypes of IfcTypeObject). Some associations (such as approval, or document) may also be applied to property templates (as subtypes of IfcPropertyDefinition).
The association relationship establishes an association between one to many objects or property templates and the associated information. The subtypes of IfcRelAssociates establish the particular semantic meaning of the association relationship.
Assignment of a globally unique identifier within the entire software world.
Assignment of the information about the current ownership of that object, including owning actor, application, local identification and information captured about the recent changes of the object,
Optional name for use by the participating software systems or users. For some subtypes of IfcRoot the insertion of the Name attribute may be required. This would be enforced by a where rule.
Optional description, provided for exchanging informative comments.
