Pruning a System Entity Structure involves selecting aspects from entities as well as entities from specializations. In particular, selecting an entity (the child) from a specialization under another entity (the parent) results in a combination of child and parent that can inherit some of the properties of the parent or child. We show how MS4 Me allows flexibility in how you want this inheritance to be carried out. The inheritance specifications are added to the pruning script and control the hierarchical model generated by transforming the pruning entity structure.
