class Ifc2x3::IfcRelAssignsToGroup : public Ifc2x3::IfcRelAssigns

The objectified relationship IfcRelAssignsToGroup handles the assignment of object definitions (individual object occurrences as subtypes of IfcObject, and object types as subtypes of IfcTypeObject) to a group (subtypes of IfcGroup).

The relationship handles the assignment of group members to the group object. It allows for grouping arbitrary objects within a group, including other groups. The grouping relationship can be applied in a recursive manner. The resulting group is of type IfcGroup.

NOTE Examples of groups include zones as a grouping of spaces, distribution systems as a grouping of building service components, or structural analysis models as a grouping of structural items.

The inherited attribute RelatedObjects gives the references to the objects, which are the elements within the group. The RelatingGroup is the group that comprises all elements. The same object or object type can be included in zero, one or many groups. Grouping relationships are not hierarchical.

Informal proposition:

The group assignment relationship shall be acyclic, that is, a group shall not participate in its own grouping relationship.
