+ Description (
+ "CIM_OrderedDependency is used to establish a relationship "
+ "between a ManagedElement and its dependencies. Each dependency "
+ "is an Antecedent reference and the order in which the "
+ "dependencies need to be resolved is indicated by the "
+ "AssignedSequence property. \n"
+ "For example, if this association is used to arrange "
+ "dependencies of a software in a hierarchical order, then this "
+ "specifies the sequence in which the dependencies need to be "
+ "installed prior to installing the software." )]

+
+ [Description (
+ "AssignedSequence is an unsigned integer \'n\' that "
+ "indicates the relative order of ManagedElement "
+ "instances. When \'n\' is a positive integer, it "
+ "indicates a place in the sequence of members, with "
+ "smaller integers indicating earlier positions in the "
+ "sequence. The special value \'0\' indicates \'don\'t "
+ "care\'. If two or more members have the same non-zero "
+ "sequence number, then the ordering between those members "
+ "is irrelevant, but they must all be ordered at the "
+ "appropriate place in the overall sequence. \n"
+ "\n"
+ "A series of examples will make ordering of members "
+ "clearer: \n"
+ "If all members have the same sequence number, \n"
+ "regardless of whether it is \'0\' or non-zero, any \n"
+ "order is acceptable. \n"
+ "o The values: \n"
+ "1:MEMBER A \n"
+ "2:MEMBER B \n"
+ "1:MEMBER C \n"
+ "3:MEMBER D \n"
+ "indicate two acceptable orders: A,C,B,D or C,A,B,D, \n"
+ "since A and C can be ordered in either sequence, but \n"
+ "only at the \'1\' position. \n"
+ "\n"
+ "Note that the non-zero sequence numbers need not start "
+ "with \'1\', and they need not be consecutive. All that "
+ "matters is their relative magnitude." )]
