Naming conventions

For each concept in the model, product, specification, type, and so on, there is an entity template and, typically, a corresponding folder template (for example, each type of entity is kept in a folder). The naming convention is that the folder template name is plural and the entity template name is singular. For example: Specification represents a specification entity and Specifications represents the folder in which the specifications are stored.

The product data model consists of data that is stored in separate repositories and data that is specific to a given product. For settings that relate to the specific product, the corresponding template name is prefixed with the word Product. For example, the generic specification template is called specification, whereas the product specific specification template is called ProductSpecification
