class Ifc4x1::IfcWorkControl : public Ifc4x1::IfcControl

An IfcWorkControl is an abstract supertype which captures information that is common to both IfcWorkPlan and IfcWorkSchedule.

HISTORY New class in IFC 2x

CHANGE IFC2x4 Corrected assignment of resources to work control in documentation. Assignment of tasks to work control updated based on changes of task time definitions and the introduction of a summary task. Identifier has been renamed (now Identification) and promoted to supertype IfcControl

A work control may have resources assigned to it, this is handled by the IfcRelAssignsToControl relationship. A work control should also define a context that gives further information about its usage. If no special context information is required then the IfcProject instance as a global context should be used instead. An explicit link between the work control and the IfcProject via IfcRelDeclares should then be provided.

From IFC2x4 onwards the assignment of tasks to the work control is handled by the IfcRelAssignsToControl relationship. IfcRelAssignsTasks as used in previous IFC releases has been deleted and can not be used any longer. Another change in IFC2x4 is that it is not necessary to assign each task to a work control as it is regarded to be sufficient if the summary task (root task in the task hierarchy defined through IfcRelNests relationships) is assigned to a work control.

The attribute IfcWorkControl.Purpose is used to define the purpose of either a work schedule or a work plan. In the case of IfcWorkPlan, the purpose attribute can be used to determine if the work plan is for cost estimating, task scheduling or some other defined purpose.

Property set use definition

The property sets relating to the IfcWorkControl are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. It is accessible by the inverse IsDefinedBy relationship. The following property set definition specific to the IfcWorkControl and its subtype are part of this IFC release:

Pset_WorkControlCommon: common property set for work control
