Entity definition

An IfcWorkSchedule represents a task schedule of a work plan, which in turn can contain a set of schedules for different purposes.

HISTORY  New entity in IFC2.0.

Declaration Use Definition

IfcWorkSchedule can reference a project (the single IfcProject instance) via IfcRelDeclares.

Figure 148 shows the backbone structure of a work schedule that defines (1) a context through IfcRelDeclares (not necessarily the project) and (2) controls tasks (typically the schedule summary task) and resources. Please note that a work calendar shall be assigned to the summary task and not the work schedule.

If an assigned IfcTask is a root-level task, such task must be declared on the IfcProject using the IfcRelDeclares relationship.

#AttributeTypeCardinalityDescriptionG
IfcRoot
1GlobalIdIfcGloballyUniqueId Assignment of a globally unique identifier within the entire software world. X
2OwnerHistoryIfcOwnerHistory? Assignment of the information about the current ownership of that object, including owning actor, application, local identification and information captured about the recent changes of the object,
NOTE  only the last modification in stored - either as addition, deletion or modification.
IFC4 CHANGE  The attribute has been changed to be OPTIONAL.
X
3NameIfcLabel? Optional name for use by the participating software systems or users. For some subtypes of IfcRoot the insertion of the Name attribute may be required. This would be enforced by a where rule. X
4DescriptionIfcText? Optional description, provided for exchanging informative comments.X
IfcObjectDefinition
HasAssignmentsIfcRelAssigns
@RelatedObjects
S[0:?]Reference to the relationship objects, that assign (by an association relationship) other subtypes of IfcObject to this object instance. Examples are the association to products, processes, controls, resources or groups.X
NestsIfcRelNests
@RelatedObjects
S[0:1]References to the decomposition relationship being a nesting. It determines that this object definition is a part within an ordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object occurrence or type can only be part of a single decomposition (to allow hierarchical strutures only).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been added and separated from Decomposes defined at IfcObjectDefinition.
X
IsNestedByIfcRelNests
@RelatingObject
S[0:?]References to the decomposition relationship being a nesting. It determines that this object definition is the whole within an ordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object or object type can be nested by several other objects (occurrences or types).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been added and separated from IsDecomposedBy defined at IfcObjectDefinition.
X
HasContextIfcRelDeclares
@RelatedDefinitions
S[0:1]References to the context providing context information such as project unit or representation context. It should only be asserted for the uppermost non-spatial object.
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been added.
X
IsDecomposedByIfcRelAggregates
@RelatingObject
S[0:?]References to the decomposition relationship being an aggregation. It determines that this object definition is whole within an unordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object definitions can be aggregated by several other objects (occurrences or parts).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been changed from the supertype IfcRelDecomposes to subtype IfcRelAggregates.
X
DecomposesIfcRelAggregates
@RelatedObjects
S[0:1]References to the decomposition relationship being an aggregation. It determines that this object definition is a part within an unordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object definitions can only be part of a single decomposition (to allow hierarchical strutures only).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been changed from the supertype IfcRelDecomposes to subtype IfcRelAggregates.
X
HasAssociationsIfcRelAssociates
@RelatedObjects
S[0:?]Reference to the relationship objects, that associates external references or other resource definitions to the object.. Examples are the association to library, documentation or classification.X
IfcObject
5ObjectTypeIfcLabel? The type denotes a particular type that indicates the object further. The use has to be established at the level of instantiable subtypes. In particular it holds the user defined type, if the enumeration of the attribute PredefinedType is set to USERDEFINED.
X
IsDeclaredByIfcRelDefinesByObject
@RelatedObjects
S[0:1]Link to the relationship object pointing to the declaring object that provides the object definitions for this object occurrence. The declaring object has to be part of an object type decomposition. The associated IfcObject, or its subtypes, contains the specific information (as part of a type, or style, definition), that is common to all reflected instances of the declaring IfcObject, or its subtypes.
IFC4 CHANGE  New inverse relationship, change made with upward compatibility for file based exchange.
X
DeclaresIfcRelDefinesByObject
@RelatingObject
S[0:?]Link to the relationship object pointing to the reflected object(s) that receives the object definitions. The reflected object has to be part of an object occurrence decomposition. The associated IfcObject, or its subtypes, provides the specific information (as part of a type, or style, definition), that is common to all reflected instances of the declaring IfcObject, or its subtypes.
IFC4 CHANGE  New inverse relationship, change made with upward compatibility for file based exchange.
X
IsTypedByIfcRelDefinesByType
@RelatedObjects
S[0:1]Set of relationships to the object type that provides the type definitions for this object occurrence. The then associated IfcTypeObject, or its subtypes, contains the specific information (or type, or style), that is common to all instances of IfcObject, or its subtypes, referring to the same type.
IFC4 CHANGE  New inverse relationship, the link to IfcRelDefinesByType had previously be included in the inverse relationship IfcRelDefines. Change made with upward compatibility for file based exchange.
X
IsDefinedByIfcRelDefinesByProperties
@RelatedObjects
S[0:?]Set of relationships to property set definitions attached to this object. Those statically or dynamically defined properties contain alphanumeric information content that further defines the object.
IFC4 CHANGE  The data type has been changed from IfcRelDefines to IfcRelDefinesByProperties with upward compatibility for file based exchange.
X
IfcControl
6IdentificationIfcIdentifier? An identifying designation given to a control It is the identifier at the occurrence level.
IFC4 CHANGE Attribute unified by promoting from various subtypes of IfcControl.
X
ControlsIfcRelAssignsToControl
@RelatingControl
S[0:?]Reference to the relationship that associates the control to the object(s) being controlled. X
IfcWorkControl
7CreationDateIfcDateTime The date that the plan is created.X
8CreatorsIfcPerson? S[1:?] The authors of the work plan.X
9PurposeIfcLabel? A description of the purpose of the work schedule.X
10DurationIfcDuration? The total duration of the entire work schedule.X
11TotalFloatIfcDuration? The total time float of the entire work schedule.X
12StartTimeIfcDateTime The start time of the schedule.X
13FinishTimeIfcDateTime? The finish time of the schedule.X
IfcWorkSchedule

Concept usage

Property Sets

The Property Sets for Objects concept template applies to this entity as shown in Table 19.

Table 19 — IfcWorkSchedule Property Sets for Objects



Document

The Document Association concept applies to this entity.

The documents of the IfcWorkSchedule can be referenced by the IfcRelAssociatesDocuments relationship.



Control Assignment

The Control Assignment concept applies to this entity.

An IfcWorkSchedule controls a set of tasks and resources defined through IfcRelAssignsToControl. Additionally, through the IfcWorkControl abstract supertype, the actors creating the schedule can be specified and schedule time information such as start time, finish time, and total float of the schedule can also be specified.



Nesting

The Object Nesting concept applies to this entity.

A work schedule can include other work schedules as sub-items through IfcRelNests relationship.



Aggregation

The Aggregation concept applies to this entity.

A work schedule can include other work schedules as sub-items. If not included in another work schedule it might be a part of a work plan (IfcWorkPlan) defined through IfcRelAggregates relationship.
