Difference between Purpose, IntendedUse and Scope at IfcDocumentInformation


Hi all,

the documentation of IfcDocumentInformation has definitions for these attributes:

Purpose: Purpose for this document
IntendedUse: Intended use for this document
Scope: Scope for this document

What is the difference between these three attributes?


Nice find! If nobody chirps up with an explanation, I propose removing all those three fields in favour of having people put it in Description.

Also, IfcDocumentStatusEnum should probably have FINAL DRAFT removed because otherwise I would strongly propose adding FINAL FINAL DRAFT and FINAL FINAL FINAL DRAFT. :smiley:
