A class with identifier http://rds.posccaesar.org/ontology/lis14/rdl/FunctionalObject
MetadataThis section provides information about 'FunctionalObject' itself.
|Source ontology||PCA 'Part 14' upper ontology|
|Comment||A functional object is part of a system, and has a function whose realisation contributes to the performance of the system as a whole.|
|Example||An item on a Process Flow Diagram (PFD) or Process and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID) should be classified as a FunctionalObject.|
|Note||A class of artefacts such as Pump is not a subclass of FunctionalObject: a pump that is not in service is not part of a system. However, an individual functional location should in general be given some high-level artefact classification in addition to its description as part of a system.|
