OMEJITEV: limitation vs. restriction vs. constraint vs. restraint
... a "limitation" is an inability for something/someone. .... a "restriction" is externally imposed to stop
something, usually by law. ... Both "limitations" and "restrictions" are "constraints" which can be the
more encompassing term to describe something that stops a person or process from happening.
"Limitations" and "constraints" usually have the feeling of holding back, where as "constraints" has
the feeling of holding within.
According to the Oxford dictionary: Restriction, constraint, restraint, or limitation?
These are all things that limit what you can do. A restriction is a rule or law that is made by someone
in authority. A constraint is something that exists rather than something that is made, although it may
exist as a result of someone's decision. A restraint is also something that exists: it can exist outside
yourself, as the result of someone else's decision; but it can also exist inside you, as a fear of what
other people may think or as your own feeling about what is acceptable: moral/social/cultural
restraints. A limitation is more general and can be a rule that someone makes or a fact or condition that
Restriction and restraint mean that it is blocked, sometimes completely blocked. (I restricted the
channels on the TV.) Limitation means that you allow less of something (I limited sugar in my diet.)
Constraint means to make something smaller or less (They put time constraints on this task.)
Both restraint and constraint refer to limitations placed upon things and people. While outside
restrictions like laws and customs cause constraints, restraints are inside restrictions that an individual
places upon himself. Shortage of funds and shortage of time are often described as budgetary
constraints and time constraints.
How do you find constraints in an operation plan? Commanders find constraints in paragraph 3 in the operation plan (OPLAN) or operation order (OPORD). Annexes to the order may also include constraints. The operations overlay, for example, may contain a restrictive fire line or a no-fire area. Commanders may issue constraints orally, in WARNORDs, or in policy memorandums.
