flexible requirement

A specification of the items that are valid for allocation (see allocate) to the selected activity. The requirement states how many items are required, and it can be fulfilled by any item that meets the specification. The requirement can be expressed as a collection of suitabilities (for example, one biology laboratory in the Central Campus), or a list of specific resources (for example, one of these specific rooms: Lab 1, Lab 2, or Lab 3). An activity can have flexible requirements for location, staff, and equipment.
