instantiated dependency

A specific example of a structural dependency that is created because of planned work or work in progress. For example, if Product Team A requires that the Legal Team create or approve work items related to its product, then a structural dependency exists between Product Team A and the Legal Team. When Product Team A need the Legal Team to generate the text for the terms and conditions page on the website, then a specific instance (instantiated dependency) of the structural dependency now exists. Contrast with structural dependency.
