QIF - Quality Information Framework Version 3.02020
QIF (Quality Information Framework) is a standard which supports Digital Thread concepts in engineering applications ranging from product design through manufacturing to quality inspection. Based on XML, the QIF standard contains a Library of XML Schema ensuring both data integrity and data interoperability in Model Based Enterprise implementation. -

QIF : Quality Information Framework Version 3.0
a physical instance of a component

Note 1 to entry: By analogy to a car, the design of a wheel is a part; the design of the wheel placed at the front right of the design of a car is a component; the front right wheel of a physical car is an actual component.

ASME Y14.100 : Engineering Drawing Practices
A number of parts or combination thereof that are joined together to perform a specific function and subject to disassembly without degradation of any of the parts (e.g., power shovel-front, fan assembly, audio- frequency amplifier). NOTE: The distinction between an assembly and a subassembly is determined by individual application. An assembly in one instance may be a subassembly in another instance where it forms a portion of a higher assembly.

a sequence with an id of the ids of components

Note 1 to entry: An assembly path shows where in an assembly design a specific instance of a part design or a subassembly design is located
