 +The first basic idea of modelling coupling devices in the VEC is that each of these devices in a vehicle electrical system will be representeted in a single construction object, grouped in an extra container, separately from the harnesses. So a coupling device can still exist even if one side of it is missing. In case of inlining coupling devices the structure described below can easily be treansfered to the context of a single harness. 
 +Furthermore a coupling device (described from the VEC point of view) is like a virtual housing grouping two or more connectors which are (potentially) plugged together. For this reason the construct of EE components is used to model coupling devices. \\
-The figure above illustrates the model of the smallest appearance of a coupling device (e.g. an inliner) with just one connector with only one pin on each side. The coupling device is represented in the VEC by a //​ComponentNode//​ with the componentNodeType ‘//​CouplingDevice’//​ and contains for each side of the coupling device a //​ComponentConnector//​. These connectors ////include the //​ComponentPorts//,​ which represent the pins of the connector.\\ To display the connectivity between the two sides connectors and their pins, the VEC also contains a //​Connection//​ with two //​ConnectionEnds//,​ which reference the connected ComponentPorts. The flag isExternalEnd of the Ends is set to false, because the connection represent the internal mapping of the coupling device. The connection to other //​ComponentNodes//​ is represented by different //​Connections//​ with ConnectionEnds where //​isExternal=true.//​ 
-===== 8.2.2 Variance ​===== +===== VEC Structure and Part Master Data =====
-{{ .:​diagrams:​8_2_2_variance.jpg?​937x658 }}+
-A more complex situation is displayed in this diagram. A coupling device can consist of one or more connectors for each side. Because of variance it is possible, that more than one connector from a side are mapping onto one connector of the other side. 
-If there is a second connector placed on one of the sides, this connector gets its own ComponentConnector with the underneath ComponentPorts.
