SMM12 — Replace “accumulate” variants with “combine” concerning binary measures.

  • Key: SMM12-94
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Micro Focus ( Larry Hines)
  • Summary:

    Accumulate means to amass a quantity of something. It is an appropriate term for collective measures or collective measurements. For this reason collective measures have an "accumulator" (defined in the meta-model). But it is overly vague with respect to binary measures and binary measurements. Replacing the variants of “accumulate” with “combine” would be better.

    The rescales association in RescaledMeasure class applies to both binary measures and collective measures. In that case, "accumulates or combines" would be better than simply "accumulates".

  • Disposition Summary:

    Replace accumulate with combine for binary measure(ment)

    Replace "accumulate" variant (other than "accumulator"), when used in relation to a binary measure(ment), with "combine". Accumulator is left unchanged.
