Multiplicity / Anzahl


Semantics / Bedeutung

(introduced with version 2.2) Container element for pre-defining organisations or companies (like infrastructure managers, railway undertakings, vehicle keepers, freight forwarders, ...) taking part in the railway business or operation. These organisational units will be referred from within the railML® file in the <organizationalUnits> element.

Each element may be used several times for several entries, as e.g. a network may be divided into areas with different infrastructure managers, and as within the network there will usually move vehicles from different producers. Every element entry within this container has, at least, an attribute name plus an attribute id. It can be addressed via this id from certain other places within the railML®-file
