Abstract [en]

The notion of giving support to composite objects in systems is gaining strength in a number of areas. In this paper we examine the usefulness of introducing part-of reasoning in a description logic in a document management environment. We identify key issues in both expressivity and inferencing. We define a language that allows for differentiating between different kinds of parts and definition of domains, number restrictions and ordering of parts. We identified also questions and inferences which are useful in document management. This has led us to define a part-of hierarchy for individuals and inferences concerning the assembly of composite objects.
