[protege-discussion] Antwort: instances with multiple parents?

you have to introduce a class "GPS_Bike_Computer" that has both Bike 
Computer and GPS Unit as superclasses.
Garmin 605 will then be an instance of "GPS_Bike_Computer".
Does that fit?

[protege-discussion] instances with multiple parents?

Hi, I don't see a way to provide an Instance with more than one parent 
Class, but my data model seems to need this feature.

For example, the Garmin 605 is both a Bike Computer and a GPS Unit.  On my 
website, I want my users to be able to navigate to the Garmin 605 from 
either of two ways:

Cycling>Bike Parts>Bike Computers>Garmin 605


Electronics>Navigation>GPS Units>Garmin 605

Where Bike Computers, GPS Units, etc up the tree are all Classes, and the 
Garmin 605 is an Instance.

Or should I just make the Garmin 605 a Class, and it can then have 
multiple parents?  In that case, I'd have to make all the products 
Classes, and that just seems weird.
