Published

Author(s)

Abstract

The Date-Time Vocabulary is a new OMG specification that models continuous time, discrete time, the relationship of events and situations to time, language tense and aspect, time indexicals, timetables, and schedules. It offers a "business vocabulary" (i.e. a linguistically-oriented ontology), intended for application by business rules for any business domain. The vocabulary is defined in SBVR, in UML + OCL, and partially in Common Logic and in OWL.
