Introduction

Two related questions about the naming conventions used for associations in the RMIM diagram.

Discussion

Q: Why does a diagram have a subjectOf5 association when there is no subjectOf1-4? (Specimen Universal CMET in Lab)

A: The names of the associations follow a formal naming structure but not all of the associations are visible on the diagram.

Q: Why does the lite version of the above CMET have subjectOf1?

A: When the modeler created the lite version of the CMET, the selection of the associations to keep or discard may be different than the choices made in the full CMET. Some of the visible associations may then be named differently.
