Template ParticipatorInActivity

This is a template for describing a typed participation of a possible individual in an activity.
ParticipatorInActivity (a, b, c, d, e) means that a is an instance of a (temporal part of)!Activity, b is the type of activity, c is the (temporal part of) object participating in the activity, d is the role this participator has in the activity, and e is the type of the participator.

5 hasClassOfIndividual ClassOfIndividual


ParticipatorInActivity (x1, x2, x3, x4, x5) <-> 
Activity(x1) & 
ClassOfActivity (x2) & 
PossibleIndividual(x3) & 
RoleAndDomain (x4) & 
ClassOfIndividual(x5) & 
ClassificationTemplate(x1,x2) & 
  exists y1 (ParticipationTriple(y1, x3, x1) &
    exists y2 ( exists y3 (
    ClassOfParticipationTriple(y3, y2, x2) &
    SpecializationTemplate(y2, x4) &
    SpecializationTemplate(y2, x5) &
    ClassificationTemplate(x3, y2) &
    ClassificationTemplate(y1, y3) ))) .

NOTE: the roles x4 and x5 could be replaced by one role of type ParticipatingRoleAndDomain, but that kind of class will probably not find its way into the Core RDL. And if it does, there still needs to be defined a RoleAndDomain and a ClassOfIndividual as its superclasses, which means the same amount of work (only not attached to the template at hand).

EXAMPLE The activity Hydrostatic Test 123 of a Pipe Line ABC;

For the Hydrostatic Test of the pipe line system (Pipe Line ABC is part in the test): ParticipatorInActivity (123, PIPELINE PRESSURE TEST, 2345, SUBJECT IN, PIPELINE SYSTEM)
