  • Status: closed

  • Summary:

    Add a reference to revised section 7.2.2 in the paragraph of

    A revision to section 7.2.3 is proposed in BACM-44. This revision explain that some model elements that are instances of metaclasses represent collections of things with identical or similar characteristics (i.e. they are sets defined by the structural properties of the model element). This association allows the modeler to create semantic hierarchies of such model elements.
