Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.0.1
A component (of any type) can be 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.
