  • product functions used to describe the functional requirements for products and components of products;
  • product components used to describe the common decomposition structure of all products of a product class or of various alternative solutions;
  • alternative solutions used to describe the variants for a product component or for a product function;
  • item instances used to identify an occurrence of a component in an assembly structure;
