FIBOFTF2 — Several properties and classes in Ownership and Control are missing definitions, and some do not conform to FIBO naming conventions

  • Key: FIBOFTF2-15
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Thematix Partners LLC ( Elisa Kendall)
  • Summary:

    A number of properties and a few classes were added to the FIBO FND Ownership and Control ontologies to support the structural work completed under FTF 1. None of the new properties or classes have definitions, and some properties do not conform with the naming conventions established for all FIBO ontologies.

    In the Control ontology, the following properties are missing definitions: (1) controlByParty, (2) controlOfThing, (3) isControlledThingInRole, and (4) isControllingPartyInRole. Two of these, controlByParty and controlOfThing are not verbs, which is not conformant with FIBO naming conventions. In the same ontology, the newly added Control and ControlledThing classes are also missing definitions.

    In the Ownership ontology, the following properties are missing definitions: (1) isOwnedThingInRole, (2) isOwningPartyInRole, (3) ownershipByParty, and (4) ownershipOfThing. Two of these, ownershipByParty and ownershipOfThing are also not verbs, i.e., are not conformant with FIBO Naming conventions.
