13.3.9 Duration



   ValueSpecification (from Kernel ) on page 140.


   A duration defines a value specification that specifies the temporal distance between two time instants.


   • observation : Observation [*] Refers to the time and duration observations that are involved in expr

   • expr : ValueSpecification [0..1] The value of the Duration.


   No additional constraints.


   A Duration defines a ValueSpecification that denotes some duration in time. The duration is given by the difference in time between a starting point in time and an ending point in time.


   A Duration is a value of relative time given in an implementation specific textual format. Often a Duration is a nonnegative integer expression representing the number of time ticks which may elapse during this duration.
