Constraint Overview

A constraint is a spatial, temporal, or root relation between any two components.

Constraint Types

Spatial Constraints

These constraints describe the spatial relationship or extrinsics between two components.

Spatial Constraints

Temporal Constraints

These constraints describe the temporal relationship between two components. Synchronization of both clocks and observations between components is handled by temporal constraints.

Temporal Constraints

Root Component Constraints

These purely symbolic constraints act as a way to parse abstract relationships between components. They come in handy for grouping components by their common hardware package, location, or function on a system.
