Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.0.1

A component (of any type) can labeled in many ways either during the manufacturing process, for example a label that is imprinted on the component during the general manufacturing process (e.g. the part number), or in its concrete use (e.g. with wire number or a usage node id). The LabelingSpecification defines general labeling properties of the component. Labeling properties in its concrete use are defined with the correspoding role.

Name Type Mult. Description Owning Classifier
identification String 1

Specifies a unique identification of the specification. The identification is guaranteed to be unique within the document containing the specification. For all VEC-documents a Specification-instance can be trusted to be identical if the DocumentVersion-instance is the same (see DocumentVersion) and the identification of the Specification is the same.

description AbstractLocalizedString 0..*

Specifies additional, human readable information about the specification.

specialPartType String 0..1

The specialPartType allows the specification of subclassifications for a PartOrUsageRelatedSpecification (e.g. different types of connector housings).

labelType LabelType 0..1

Specifies the type of a label printed, stamped or integrated on or in component (e.g. alpha numerical, bar code).

labelValue String 0..1

Specifies the value of a label printed on the component. This value applies to all components that satisfy this specification, so all instances share the same label value (e.g. a part number).

If instances of a component require individual labeling it has to be defined on the LabelingRole.

labelingTechnology LabelingTechnology 0..1 Specifies the used labeling technology if the label is already defined in this specification. LabelingSpecification
allowedLabelingTechnology LabelingTechnology 0..* Specifies the allowed labeling technologies if the component is not yet labeled, but support labeling in its usage. LabelingSpecification
