Standard: PHER CMETs Release 10 Artifact ID, Name: E_PublicHealthEntity universal(COCT_RM840000UV)


The current E_PublicHealthEntity series of CMETs does not handle devices very well. Device is a specialization of Manufactured Material, which is included in the CMETs, but Device has its own specialized attributes that are not contained in the current model.


  • Add a Device class with relevant attributes to the E_PublicHealthEntity and E_PublicHealthPhysicalEntity CMETs.
  • Create a new E_PublicHealthDevice CMET which only contains the new device class.


Device specific attributes such as manufacturedModelName and SoftwareName may be relevant for public health investigations of devices.
