Issue 70: Relationship between P15 took into account and P17 was motivation for

Starting Date:

Working Group:

Status: 
Done
Closing Date:

Background: 

P17 "was motivation of (motivated)" and "P15 took into account" seem to share some meaning. This should be clarified.

Old Proposal: 

I propose a new and more general property:

Pnn Activity - was influenced by (influenced) Persistent Item

This would subsume:

P15 Activity - took into account (was taken into account by) ConceptualObject
P17 Activity - was motivated by (motivated) Man-Made Stuff (why notStuff?) (issue 79)

It would also resolve issue 79: Change Property Name P17 was motivation
for to was motivated by

Current Proposal: 

redefine range of: 
P15 Activity - took into account (was taken into account by): Persistent Item
I take "took into account" as synonym to "influenced by", as the Actor of the
activity "must let it influence her/him".

redefine range of:
P17 Activity - was motivated by (motivated): Stuff ,

declare P16,P17 as subproperty of P15.

This complements the existing links: 
P19 Activity - was intended use of (was made for) Man-Made Stuff
P16 Activity - used specific object (was used for) Stuff (issue 96)

I propose to either add:
Pxx Activity - was influenced by (influenced): E7 Activity

and declare
P18 Activity - was motivation of (motivated) : E7 Activity subproperty of Pxx

Or to generalize P18 into "was influenced by".


The link P20 corresponds to P19: 
P20 Activity - had specific purpose (was purpose of) : E7 Activity (intention, future)

Do we need an equivalent to P16 ?:
Pyy Activity - continued (was continued by) : E7 Activity

To my understanding, this is all that could be said about
influence between activity and stuff, and between activities.
It seems to me complete and symmetric.

Outcome: 

P15 Activity was influenced by (influenced) E1 Entity

P17 Activity was motivated by (motivated) E1 Entity
P19 Activity was intended use of (was made for) Man-made Stuff
P16 Activity used specific object (was used for) Stuff

P20 Activity had specific purpose (was purpose of) E7 Activity
Pxx Activity continued (was continued for ) E7 Activity

Delete P18 Activity was motivation of (motivated) E1 Entity because it is subsumed by P17. 

P16, P17, P19, P20 and Pxx are sub-properties of P15.

Scope note comment (for Pxx): If one activity is continued by another it would be possible to regard both activities as part of a larger one. 

Proposal accepted, Copenhagen 3/7/2002.
