i f I can get you right, you mean you want all individual of class A to be related to all individual of class B, all you need do is to relate class A to class B with the property 'isapplicableto' since a class is a set containing individuals the se property will be used for all the individuals in class A and B. Then if yu need to make a change just change the property name and it changes for all the individuals of the two classes. I hope this solves your problem.

I have two enumerated class with individuals that I'd like to have a binary relationship with each other. So let's suppose I have class A and B, then I'd like all elements of class A to be related to every element in class B using the object property isAppliableTo.
I know that I could infer that every individual in class A has the property by using the equivalence class:
isAppliableTo value individualB_1
where individualB_1 is some individual from class B; if I repeat the relationship above for every individual in B then each individual in A will have the property inferred to it.
It's a bit tedious, and if a change occurs, I'd have to make changes in two places. So I was hoping there's an easier way to do this? Or a better approach?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
