Object Approval

The Object Approval concept applies to this entity.

Approvals may be associated to indicate the status of acceptance or rejection using the IfcRelAssociatesApproval relationship where RelatingApproval refers to an IfcApproval and RelatedObjects contains the IfcActionRequest. Approvals may be split into sub-approvals using IfcApprovalRelationship to track approval status separately for each party where RelatingApproval refers to the higher-level approval and RelatedApprovals contains one or more lower-level approvals. The hierarchy of approvals implies sequencing such that a higher-level approval is not executed until all of its lower-level approvals have been accepted.



Object Aggregation

The Object Aggregation concept applies to this entity as shown in Table 245.
PredefinedTypeRelatedObjectsDescription
 IfcCostScheduleCost schedules may indicate the costs projected or incurred for the request.

Table 245 — IfcActionRequest Object Aggregation

As shown in Figure 242, an IfcActionRequest may be aggregated into components.

Object Nesting

The Object Nesting concept applies to this entity as shown in Table 246.
TypeDescription
IfcActionRequestA request may be nested into follow-up requests, in order of issue

Control Assignment

The Control Assignment concept applies to this entity.

As shown in Figure 243, an IfcActionRequest may be assigned to the following entities using relationships as indicated:

The IfcActionRequest may have assignments of its own using the IfcRelAssignsToControl relationship where RelatingControl refers to the IfcActionRequest and RelatedObjects contains one or more objects of the following types:
