DTV13 — UML operations are not defined

  • Key: DTV13-13
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16873
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Mr. Edward J. Barkmeyer)
  • Summary:

    Many of the UML classes defined in Clause 8 have several UML operations.
    While it may be easy to guess the relationship between the operations and the associations, there is no text that defines these operations, or even mentions their relationship to the associations. In each case, these operations should be formally documented under the "glossary entry" for the class. (The description in clause 5.2 is helpful, but it alone does not meet the documentation requirement. It just says that each such operation is somehow related to some defined association.)

  • Disposition Summary:

    Clarify UML operations construction in 5.3

    Clause 5.3 documents the derivation of the UML classes, associations, attributes, association end names, and operations from the SBVR glossary entries. The UML model is not otherwise explicitly documented at all in the text. Such documentation would be largely redundant with the glossary entry text. The RTF therefore sees no need to document the UML operations separately.

    There are some minor inaccuracies in the wording of clause 5.3, and they are corrected here.
