The presence of properties could stem from various sources. We classify these properties as follows:

Common Properties

  • Some properties, like criticality, TCO, efficiency etc. are quite common.
  • Common properties are built in the Labnaf modeling language.

Custom properties

  • Each specific organization usually adds custom properties to fulfil their specific catalog management and reporting requirements.
  • These custom property requirements evolve over time following the employee turnover and the users’ feedback.

Other properties

  • These are properties that have been imported, generated (implicit data), calculated, or created manually for individual elements e.g. for specific processes.
