20180213 FIBO FND FCT


Rights Discussion - No argument.


On Products Facility and Services slide Cory asks, what about a Brokered thing. MB a broker is brokering a product as a relative thing. Cory Let's say it is something I don't own? MB It all hangs together.


This weeks review is Services - Cory Is there a meta slippage. These seem to be classes. MB These are all kinds of things.


Cory This shows that the buyer buys class of things, not an individual thing. Cory says if I have a store and it sells beans. If I have a transaction I am selling an instance of a can of beans. MB isn’t this punning because if a model shows x as an instance of a product?


Max The distinction is because we can offer to deliver beans. But when we sell, we sell an instance. MB in OWL2 we can have an instance of a type product and an instance of product. This is an implementation issue.


Cory - Nope object. Can't tell what the boxes represent. Looked at one way could be product lines and service lines. Looked at another say could be instances of a product or a service. MB OWL2 supports punning, but FIBO does not need it. Cory We have to distinguish between product lines and instances. If not, then FIBO does not offer a way of really clarifying the meaning necessary for financial roll ups.


Max Need to introduce the notion of product line. MB Need extra level of detail in the FND model.


Cory issue also applies to slide 17.


MB need to then go back and look at all of the definitions. MB invites Cory to this Friday meeting on FND to nail down products and services. Can have services that provision other services.


Slide 14 Marcello Facility access right is the consequence of a contract. Should be shown in the model.
