TIPs revisited

latest update: 2015-05-24    

Introduction

Definition

A TIP (Template Information Pattern) is a statement with two or more variables, called "parameters" that, when instantiated, expands into the predicates of one or more specialized ISO 15926-8 template instances.

Application

TIPs form a bridge between engineering language, often with its shortcuts, and the semantically equivalent set of ISO 15926-8 lowered template predicates.

The TIPs (see overview)  that can be found in the TIP Manager (takes some time to start up) are descriptive. From this portal web page access can be found to full definitions, one page per TIP, as well as to a list of added/corrected RDL items.

Generic TIPs

There are TIPs that have exactly identical structures, only the parameters have different names. Generic TIPs (GTIPs), being their generalization, are proposed.

NOTE - When 'template' is shown in the column 'use GTIP ' then the template used there is a straightforward specialization.

Feedback

The reader is invited to come with comments, suggestions, etc via the Forum on this 15926.org website.
