UAF13 — subOrganization is Neither a Type Nor a Type of Human Being

  • Key: UAF13-34
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Eclectica Systems Ltd ( Nic Plum)
  • Summary:

    Definition: 'A type of a human being used to define the characteristics that need to be described for ActualPersons (e.g., properties such as address, telephone number, nationality, etc.).'

    1) 'sub-' anything is never a type. The 'sub' simply indicates a position in a hierarchy but the type is the same.

    2) An Organization is not a Human Being

    3) The definition of a type should be atomic and self-contained - it cannot depend on any other element such as 'ActualPersons'

    Organization is defined as 'A group of OrganizationalResources (Persons, Posts, Organizations and Responsibilities) associated for a particular purpose'. This shouldn't include other metamodel elements for the same reason i..e not OrghanizationalResource etc.
