Issue 384: Template for family models

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

In the 41st joined meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9 and the 34th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, the sig, resolving the issue 358, decided to open new issue for the discussion about doc template for family models. Thus this issue is initiated by Thanasis Velios post on 9/5/2018 about  the sub-issue  of 358  about simplifying the template for the description of the family models. Thanasis proposed that the the current template is actually simple and, in his view, suitable but it has not always been followed. . As far as the document template is concerned he proposed that it should remain the same. Only that it should be followed more strictly (for example, for the CRMsci version 1.2.5 he have proposed the removal of several sections which are not part of the template - see issue 332).

The sig reviewed the template commented by Thanasis and decided that we should got rid of a bunch of fore matter that was repetitive. The  idea would be to create just a reference to the CRMbase document and its formulation of all the basic principles etc. HW assigned to Thanasis to write the reference phrase.

Dear all,

I had a go at an introductory sentence for the model extensions:


This document describes work which uses and extends the CIDOC Conceptual
Reference Model (CRM, ISO21127). The Definition of the CIDOC-CRM
document should be read before this document. References to the CRM in
this document are taken from CRM version 6.2 maintained by CIDOC.


Attached is the updated template and an example of how it could be used
with the CRMSci.
