DTV11 — Year of Weeks and Year of Weekdays Scales are Misdefined

  • Key: DTV11-62
  • Legacy Issue Number: 17533
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: General Electric ( Mark Linehan)
  • Summary:

    These two ‘year of weeks scale’ and ‘year of weekdays scale’ are defined using the ‘time scale subdivides time point’ verb concept. That verb concept assumes that the start of the time point coincides with the start of the scale, but this is not true for these two scales because calendar weeks are not coherent with calendar years. A special verb concept needs to be used to relate weeks and weekdays to calendar years.

  • Disposition Summary:

    The issue is correct: subdivides does not characterize the year of weeks or the year of weekdays scales. These time scales are finite sequences that map directly to the weeks calendar and year of days calendar respectively
