Information and Properties

This chapter explains how information in CAD models is implemented, information types as well as strategies for using information. Some of the information types mentioned in the chapter are speculative in that they do not seem to be part of any CAD system. However this is done to illustrate information types and also because the use of information in CAD is expected to increase in the future, maybe to include some of these types.
