Instantiation of a part of equipment in the model that refers to the part library; an instance of a specific object. The design can be built several times, and therefore the occurrence can apply to more than one hull. Typically, an occurrence points back to a specific object, either for its complete definition, as in the case of a particular valve, or for its made from material, as in the case of a steel plate part cut from sheets. Thus, when a designer selects a component from the catalog and places it at a location in the space of the model, the software creates an occurrence of that object in the model design.
