Bugs and Issues / Re: Generalization notation
« on: April 19, 2016, 02:37:33 pm »
Thoughts?

I think that may have been a pun too far.  :D

I'm wondering if there is actually the need for a class-like diagram for logical modelling with more permissive options for those of us with a less than Teutonic need for adherence to the UML rules.  I don't use a class diagram for any sort of code engineering.  I use it to create semantic models and show how attributes flow through multiple systems (eg Active Directory into Cisco Call Manager or Follow-me printing)

I have to admit to not understanding why turning on "Show Additional Parent" and "Show Hidden Parent" only shows the generalize parent and not the implements parent.

I do notice youse being used as a plural for you more when I'm in Straya, but that maybe because it is more noticeable when hearing it in another accent.
It's more common in country areas than the capital cities. I'm sure I would find it very useful, but unfortunately it (like its US equivalent y'all) can't be spoken un-self-conciously in an English accent.

I find y'all quaint and endearing and I am always delighted when someone manages to use it twice in one sentence.  Youse (ewes) - on the other hand - are sheep.

I use this feature all the time, if it was removed I'd have to find another way of achieving the same thing.

How can something be aggregate of itself?

To understand recursion, you must first understand recursion.   ;D

I can't recall if the ArchiMate specification (or even UML) says this but for the sake of the discussion, let's assume that any arbitrary element metatype can be an aggregate of the same element metatype .

Code: [Select]
Furthermore, aggregation, composition, and specialization relationships are always permitted between two elements that have the same type.  Section 2.4 http://pubs.opengroup.org/architecture/archimate2-doc/chap02.html#_Toc371945148

General Board / Re: Model Access
« on: April 19, 2016, 07:07:08 am »
Hi there.  My approach to activities like major business process re-engineering is to replicate the repository and let only the people working on the project have access.  This may seem extreme but when process reengineering may result in redundancies it is very problematic letting anyone know of ideas being explored.  Once decision have been made you can update the main repository and drop the "what if" repository completely.

I was being facetious.  You can find abuses of the language on both sides of the ditch.  I do notice youse being used as a plural for you more when I'm in Straya, but that maybe because it is more noticeable when hearing it in another accent.

General Board / Re: Synchronize model with ERWIN

Rather be facetious than fatuous ANY day!

It's a thin line, most people think they're the former but are perceived to be the latter.

For those who need to google "facetious" like me:

If you're lazy you can substitute fatuous; very similar meaning and takes fewer letters.

If Paolo speaks Stralin, he might actually speak four languages, since the official language of Straya is Strayn.

'stralin is Kiwi for Strayn.  We're obviously better educated and more literate, and know how to use an apostrophe for contractions rather than just pluralising words :-)

Create your own MDG.

By the way for both of you...I assume you're not native English speakers? If so you both have tremendous command of the language, both formally and in your use and understanding of day-to-day expressions! Thanks so much for your help.

Bill
I was born in the UK to Italian parents, but effectively didn't speak English till I went to school at age 5.  Whether that make me a native English speaker is a moot point.

and now you speak 'stralin.  Does that make you tri-lingual?

Yes the behaviour here is irritating.

For Glassboy:  I originally mistyped "some" above as "somme".  Perhaps a Freudian slip?

I think you may just be going over the top with that one.
