The NRF module is a generic foundation module that is independent of any particular engineering discipline, and provides definitions to capture:
  • identification and naming of objects
  • persons and organizations
  • date and time
  • quantities and units, including the representation of scalar and tensor quantities of any rank, and of numerical (physical) as well as string valued quantities
  • parametrics
  • network-model representation of engineering objects using discrete nodes and relationships between the nodes
  • analysis, simulation, test or operation cases
  • analysis, simulation, test or operation runs with results
  • simple hierarchical product or system structure, and their relation with discrete network-model representations
  • materials and material properties
The module can be used as a stand-alone STEP-NRF protocol.
