utility element

A utility element is an entity in a utility network that corresponds to a feature or a part of a feature (for example, a terminal inside a device). Utility elements can be used to:

  • Specify starting points and barriers for tracing.
  • Define the "from" and "to" sides of associations.
  • Return trace results.

A utility element includes a reference to a feature inside a utility network source plus a terminal, when applicable.
