3.4.1 Quantity Module

Depending on the application area several different quantity types can be distinguished:

The quantity module supports all these types of quantities and manages data storage, instantiates, modifies, or deletes quantities on demand and controls access to the information stored in these objects. Thereby it manages several existing quantity types (see Fig. 3.4) which are explained in the next section.
