Cardinality connection point
One side of a cardinality jump.
- Sense. Upstream or Downstream, depending on its position in a
dependency path. Derived value.
- Cardinality. Positive integer indicating the relative number
of times that one connection point occurs in the current
contract period per occurrences of the other connection point
of the cardinality dependency. If the upstream point in a
dependency path has cardinality n and the downstream point
has cardinality m then for k occurrences of the upstream path,
there are k(m∕n) downstream occurrences (figure B.1). If this
is not a natural number, the scenario is inconsistent.
Default value is 1.
