SBVR15 — ROLE: RANGES OVER VS. SPECIALIZES, GENERALIZES

  • Key: SBVR15-11
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19519

  • Summary:

    SBVR 1.2, 'role': 'ranges over' vs. 'specializes'.

    Clause 8, entry for ‘role’. Should the addition at the end of the second Example text: "(which generalizes the role)" read: "(which the role ranges over)"? As I understand it, you mean to say that the role shipment ranges over the general concept shipment. The reverse reading of "ranges over" is not "generalizes" (there is a specific Note at the lemma "role ranges over general concept" that warns against this confusion).
