A basic set of objects that can support structured searching for discovery and ingest to statistical software, and provide sufficient information for the intelligent use and understanding of the associated data. Making data independently understandable so people can reuse it.

Use Cases:
This Functional View supports three major uses
* Basic search to find data (general search, known item search). Users are looking to use data.
* Machine actionable to allow users to analyze the data (ingest to statistical software)
* Informational content to support Intelligent use and understanding the data

Target Audience:
Individual researchers, research groups, National Statistical Organizations focusing on stand-alone codebooks, students, instructors, archives, and libraries.

General Usage Instructions:
Study is the conceptual anchor for an individual collection activity resulting in a data set or data file. It can be both a part of a StudySeries as a wave etc. or an unrelated activity like a single survey project.

Include in build?: 


Removed OtherMaterial and StudyUnit classes from SimpleCodebookView. Note that new instructions for populating Functional Views was settled at the Copenhagen Sprint 2015 and that the Codebook Functional View will be a primary test case for this approach to creating Functional Views. Additional modelers will work with the group in entering content for the Functional View to test both the approach and the instructional material.

This will change after August 16, 2016 as fixed format description is added to formatDescription and as specific realizations of the Methodology pattern are done (e.g. sampling and weightng)

As of August 16, 2016 this has a logical order relation but not a physical order relation. We probably need both.
