SBVR14 — Entry for "categorization scheme", p. 147, Definition. and Example

  • Key: SBVR14-83
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10958
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Hendryx & Associates ( Stan Hendryx)
  • Summary:

    The definition currently reads "scheme for partitioning things ..."
    Should read "scheme for classifying things ..."

    'Partitioning' is a segmentation, which is a categorization scheme that is complete and disjoint. The problem here is that the general concept, "categorization scheme" is defined to be a specialization of itself, "partitioning". Categorization schemes are not, in general, segmentations. Categorization schemes are, in general, neither complete nor disjoint. The word "classifying" captures the more general concept and should be substituted for "partitioning" in the definition. The Example is a segmentation. It could be revised to show a categorization scheme that is neither total nor disjoint, e.g.

    {boy, adult}

    . The Example under "categorization scheme" could be moved to be an example under "segmentation."
