the availability of water is the main constraint on food production
time constraints make it impossible to do everything
Stiffness of manner and inhibition in relations between people
they would be able to talk without constraint
the state of being physically constrained; "dogs should be kept under restraint"
restraint: a device that retards something's motion; "the car did not have proper restraints fitted"
the act of constraining; the threat or use of force to control the thoughts or behavior of others
(constrained) lacking spontaneity; not natural; "a constrained smile"; "forced heartiness"; "a strained smile"
A relational database matches data by using common characteristics found within the data set. The resulting groups of data are organized and are much easier for many people to understand.
Constraint in information theory refers to the degree of statistical dependence between or among variables.
In mathematics, a constraint is a condition that a solution to an optimization problem must satisfy. There are two types of constraints: equality constraints and inequality constraints. The set of solutions that satisfy all constraints is called the feasible set.
Constraints are limitations that are outside the control of the project team and need to be managed around. They are not necessarily problems and they are not necessarily even risks. ...
(Constraints) Restrictions that will affect the scope of the project or the project activities
’’Constraints’’ enable you to constrain the position, orientation, or scale of an object to other objects. Further, with constraints you can impose specific limits on objects and automate animation processes.
(CONSTRAINTS) Define this as the key, with the constraint as the value. See the postgresql example below. Additional constraints defined for the whole table. You will probably need to prefix this with a comma.
(Constraints) Constraint modules define additional constraints for corresponding vocabulary modules in order to restrict content models or attribute lists for specific element types, remove extension elements from an integrated domain module, or replace base element types with domain-provided ...
(Constraints) Define allowable ranges of stress, deflection, frequency, and so on. Both minimum and maximum values can be specified.
(Constraints) Limitations on where an Activity can be run. Some limitations include room size, location and audio-visual requirements.
(Constraints) Obstacles, either structural or geographical, in a specific area or areas which represent potentially higher impact that should be avoided by a transmission line.
(Constraints) Planned change efforts need to be based on constraints, such as limited time, access to financial resources, competencies or raw materials.
(Constraints) Referring to "persons, events, objects, and relations which are parts of the situation because they have the power to constrain decision and action needed to modify the exigence." Originally used by Lloyd Bitzer.
(Constraints) Restrictions or limitations on tables and attributes. For example, a wine can be produced only by one winery, an order for wine can't exist if it isn't associated with a customer, having a name attribute could be mandatory for a customer.
(Constraints) Restrictions set on the start or finish date of a task. You can specify that a task must start on or finish no later than a particular date. Constraints can be flexible (not tied to a specific date) or inflexible (tied to a specific date)
(Constraints) The term can refer to restrictions or barriers that designers themselves build in to devices or systems to prevent people from doing the wrong thing (such as a door that only opens toward you and keeps you from blindsiding people on the other side). ...
(Constraints) These are the things that might hold the audience back from doing what you want them to do or from learning what you want them to learn. It is important to anticipate these constraints and be prepared to handle them.
(Constraints) Things that may impede the implementation of a strategy.
(Constraints) any limitations imposed on the project or solution; typically falls into the categories of time, cost and resources, scope, and quality.

(Constraints) prevent users from creating invalid entries, thus ensuring consistency throughout the terminology database.
