Class PartUsage


PartUsages shall be used for the specification of the elements on an electrical system wiring plan and for the specification of the elements on a pure geometry description. PartUsages shall more than ever be used in cases where it is necessary to describe a certain instance of a part or part group, possibly together with certain technical properties, but where it is at the same time yet not possible to define a concrete part number.

The primary type of the PartUsage defines the type of the described part (e.g. ConnectorHousing, Fixing, etc.) Since the VEC supports dual use parts (e.g. Fixing & WireProtection) there is no direct connection between the primaryPartUsageType and the allowed specifications for the description of a PartUsage.
