SBVR15 — Issue "fact type role is in fact type"

  • Key: SBVR15-27
  • Legacy Issue Number: 12437
  • Status: open  
  • Source: General Electric ( Mark Linehan)
  • Summary:

    In clause 8.1.1.1, we have "fact type has role", with a synonymous form
    "fact type role is in fact type". Figure 8.2 also shows "fact type role
    is in fact type".

    Issue: a "fact type role" is a specialization of "role", so it is confusing
    to see the preferred form of the fact type use "role" but the synonymous
    form use "fact type role". Especially because figure 8.2 seems to indicate
    that a "fact type role" is in a fact type but that a "role" is explicitly
    not in a fact type. So the figure appears to contradict "fact type has
    role".

    Recommendation: I think the preferred entry is wrong, and should be changed
    to "fact type has fact type role".
