MetadataThis section provides information about 'Event' itself.

Source ontologyIndustrial Data Ontology
is primitivefalse
natural language definitionAn activity that occurs at one or more specific points in time.
CommentEvent is close in meaning to BFO's 'process boundary', and to DOLCE's 'achievement'. Note that BFO's 'process boundary' is a sibling class to 'process', even though the definition annotation states it to be a "temporal part of a process". It's not obvious why the event/process boundary shouldn't have the same participants as the parent activity/process.
An 'event' doesn't need to be temporally connected. For example, several instances of switching on a heater over a week may be represented by a single 'event' individual; it will occupy a non-singular 'instant region'. The details of a singular event part may be modelled by relating the event to 'instant' individuals.
