SMM12 — The wording “base measure(ment)” is ambiguous.

  • Key: SMM12-105
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Micro Focus ( Larry Hines)
  • Summary:

    By base measure(ment) we mean the measure(ment)s which are input to a (derived) measure(ment). But "base" is a normative word, that the meta-model uses in a much narrower scope than the spec does. This is confusing. Also: The term "derived measure" is used in quite several places in the spec, but nowhere defined.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Make the specification consistent with respect to the use of the term "base measure(ment)"

    We apply several minor changes to the text, and a few to the meta-model, to ensure that the text and the meta-model of the specification are well-aligned with respect to using the terms "Base Measure" and "Base Measurement". In particular we make sure that, where-ever a derived Measure(ment) is derived from an input Measure(ment), this derivation is always achieved by a Base Measure(ment) Relationship, so that the use of the term "base" is always founded in the meta-model.
