  • Summary:

    An assessment and an end can be related via the "on achievement of" association. I find the name of this association awkward, particularly in the typical case when the assessment is an opportunity, or one of the other three more specific categories. I suggest instead "affects", so an opportunity will affect an end. "affects achievement of" works as well.

  • Disposition: Resolved — BMM 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    In the BMM as published, "Assessment" is an objectified ternary fact type with roles played by Influencer, Means and End. The connection between Assessment and End is not named.
    The proposed resolution is:
    · [Resolution of 10114] In the overview UML diagram in Ch 7 and Figure 8.13 in Ch 8, represent Assessment as a class with binary associations with Influencer, End and Means (as well as Potential Impact).
    · Name the association between Assessment and End as "Assessment affects achievement of End", in the naming conventions agreed for Associations in the UML model [Issue 10090]
    · In the Concepts Catalog (Ch 9) add a fact type "Assessment affects achievement of End".
