Hello, I'm wondering if the following sentence is correct: Some properties help in verifying the inputs for errors in the data.

Hi,

It's correct. But more natural than errors in the data is simply data errors.
Or in your context why not simply
eg Some properties help in verifying the input.
''Verify' means 'look for errors'.

What do you mean by 'properties'? It may not be a suitable word.

Hi Clive,

Thanks for your reply. Here's the complete sentence, maybe it would help:
"Some aspects help in verifying the model inputs for errors like detecting wrong quantities of building elements which are gathered from a CAD/BIM environment, and errors in the defined process data like wrong interdependencies among production activities and wrong performance rates".

Well, I know it is a long complex sentence, but I really couldn't make it shorter or even more elegant. It would be very nice to have any suggestion on how to rewrite my sentence.

Hi,

How about this?

Model inputs are checked as follows:
- incorrect quantities of building elements gathered from a CAD/BIM environment
- errors in the defined process data, eg incorrect interdependencies among production activities and incorrect performance rates.

Clive
Perfect Emotion: smile but I need to mention that aspects do this check, and also I need to use the verb "verify" instead of "check"! Is it possible to formulate your suggestion as a sentence without a list?
Hi,

eg
Model inputs are checked as follows.
The system verifies the quantities of building elements gathered from a CAD/BIM environment
It also verifies that there are no errors in the defined process data, eg incorrect interdependencies among production activities and incorrect performance rates.

I don't know what you mean here when you say 'aspects'.

Thanks. You are right, maybe the use of the word "aspect" is somehow confusing. Here's what I mean and call an Aspect:
Model inputs might be incorrect, so it is better to check these inputs for correctness and completeness. The check process is not spontaneous. It is based on a set of predefined "aspects". Each "aspect" defines a simple proper problem that might exist in the input data. Also, it defines how to check the data in order to figure out if the problem exists or not.

What do you think Clive? Is the word aspect strange in the mentioned context?

KS
Hi,

Yes.

Have a look at the word 'algorithm'.

Clive
Well, when it comes to the implementation of an aspect, then I need an algorithm to describe an aspect.

I'll try again: An aspect is like an item in a To-Do list. In order to check the completeness and correctness of the data, all items within the list must be checked. Suppose that the check process is a manual process. Then, each item in the To-Do list should have extra information that describe the goal of checking the corresponding item in addition to how to check this item.

What would you call an item in the To-Do list? may be an "Aspect" Emotion: smile)

Thanks for your time.
