Hello,
I assume that all names on associations on the diagrams are role names.
If true, all these names should have a sigular or plural ending corresponding the related multiplicity.
e.g.
SpotLocation --> PositioningNetElement: 1 netElement
LinearLocation --> PositioningNetElement: 1..* netElements
ComposuitionNetElement --> ElementPartCollection: 0..* elementCollections

Kind regards

Your assumption is correct. And we should keep it the same in the all
the diagrams. However, in railML3 UML, the role name always describes
one instance. For the XSD export, this results then in sth like this:

<linearLocation>
<netElement ref="..." />
<netElement ref="..." />
</linearLocation>

Here, netElement is the UML role name.

Best regards
Christian

Hi Chrisitian,

> And we should keep it the same in the all

So the singular form should be used everywhere!?

Dear Felix,

to complete Christian's answer:

--> the best way is to use the singular or plural in accordance with the cardinality
