General description

Name: Sequence
Submitted by: AldoGangemi
Also Known As:
Intent: To represent sequence schemas. It defines the notion of transitive and intransitive precedence and their inverses.

It can then be used between tasks, processes, time intervals, spatially locate objects, situations, etc.

Domains:

General, Organization, Workflow, Time

Competency Questions:
  • What is before what?
  • What's next?
  • What's immediately following this?
Solution description: This pattern is a basic one; it represents the 'path' cognitive schema, which underlies many different conceptualizations: spatial paths, time lines, event sequences, organizational hierarchies, graph paths, etc.

Sequence pattern reuses the logical pattern Transitive reduction, in order to represent both transitive and non-transitive precedence relations.

Reusable OWL Building Block: http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/cp/owl/sequence.owl (553)
Consequences: We can represent and reason over transitive or intransitive sequences of any kind. However, since coreference cannot be expressed in OWL, it is not possible to represent and reason over loops and other sequences involving coreference.

Elements

The Sequence Content OP locally defines the following ontology elements:

ObjectProperty directlyFollows (owl:ObjectProperty) The intransitive follows relation. For example, Wednesday directly precedes Thursday. Directness of precedence depends on the designer conceptualization.
directlyFollows page
ObjectProperty directlyPrecedes (owl:ObjectProperty) The intransitive precedes relation. For example, Monday directly precedes Tuesday. Directness of precedence depends on the designer conceptualization.
directlyPrecedes page
ObjectProperty follows (owl:ObjectProperty) A relation between entities, expressing a 'sequence' schema.

E.g. 'year 2000 follows 1999', 'preparing coffee' follows 'deciding what coffee to use', 'II World War follows I World War', etc.

It can be used between tasks, processes or time intervals, and subproperties would fit best in order to distinguish the different uses.

follows page
ObjectProperty precedes (owl:ObjectProperty) A relation between entities, expressing a 'sequence' schema.

E.g. 'year 1999 precedes 2000', 'deciding what coffee to use' precedes 'preparing coffee', 'World War II follows World War I', 'in the Milan to Rome autoroute, Bologna precedes Florence', etc.

It can then be used between tasks, processes, time intervals, spatially locate objects, situations, etc.

Subproperties can be defined in order to distinguish the different uses.
