The purpose of the FCB is to produce S-100 conformant Feature Catalogues that contain all relevant data model elements such as feature types, attribute bindings or associations that are required for a product specification. The FCB interfaces with the GI Registry to allow feature catalogue developers to take advantage of common concept definitions and recommended attribute bindings. Functions for defining local types or draft types are also provided. Through experience, it was decided that also associations and roles should be defined in the FCB, and not be contained in the Registry. This is mainly due to the individual nature of these elements as observed through the development of several product specifications.
