Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.1.0

An OnWayPlacement places an OccurrenceOrUsage onto an area of the Topology (e.g. a tape or a tube). The area is defined by a startLocation and an endLocation. If startLocation and endLocation are not located on the same TopologySegment it is possible to specify a Path of TopologySegments over which the OnWayPlacement goes.

The names start- and endLocation are used to distinguish between the two ends. It does not indicate a direction as property of the product (e.g. for tapes).
