Alias_id Alias_identification 0..*

The alias_id specifies additional identifiers for the Dimension_specification.

Dimension_value Numerical_value 0..1

Defines the value of the dimension. This field can be used to define a user defined value for the dimension, which overrides the normal value of the dimension. The normal value of a dimension is calculated from the topology information (e.g. segment length and placements)
