3 W3C Rule Interchange Format Working GroupSBVR is an Object Management Group Specification3 Definition Definition (of definition) : expression of the meaning of a concept Relevance for this Group and RIF: Specifies the meaning of every term referenced in a rule in human language terms in a way that enables a formal logic interpretation of that meaning Based on ISO standards for Terminology and Common Logic Impact on the RIF: Must provide a single means to specify meaning both in human language and formal logic terms Pointers for more information: ISO Terminology work - Vocabulary - Part 1: Theory and application ISO Common Logic

4 W3C Rule Interchange Format Working GroupSBVR is an Object Management Group Specification4 Business Vocabulary Definition: set of symbols and forms of expression drawn primarily from a single language, and owned by a Speech Community, to express one Semantic Communitys set of discrete meanings where the Speech Community is part of the Semantic Community Relevance for this Group and RIF: Provides cohesive basis for multilingual and multi-notation capability that maintains semantic integrity Impact on the RIF: Must be able to separate the specification of meaning from all representations of the meaning without losing semantic integrity Pointers for more information:
