Super-concept (concept-oriented model)
Super-concept in the concept-oriented model (COM) is a concept which is specified via inclusion relation when a new concept is defined (which is a sub-concept).
For example, since any bank account belongs to its bank and is defined within its bank then concept Account is included in concept Bank:
CONCEPT Account IN Bank IDENTITY CHAR(10) accNo ENTITY DOUBLE balance
If accounts are supposed to have sub-accounts then this new concept has to be included in concept Account:
CONCEPT SavingsAccount IN Account IDENTITY CHAR(2) subAccNo ENTITY DOUBLE balance
This definition means that many accounts can be created within one bank and many savings accounts can be created within one main account.
