*Mainly applies to Production & Acquisition*
Here is an example of how some events are modeled due to the fact that BM data has multiple acquisition / production events which hold the issue of being uncorrelated in the Merlin database:
{flowchart} !assoc-code-subevent.png!
node [shape=box fontname=Arial fontsize=10 width=0 height=0];
edge [fontname=Arial fontsize=10];
acquisition [label="<obj/acquisition>\na E8_Acquisition"];
sub_acquisition [label="<obj/acquisition/1>\na E8_Acquisition"];
{edge [weight=100];
acquisition -> sub_acquisition [label="P9_consists_of"];
acquisition -> "the-british-museum" [label="P22_transferred_title_to"];
sub_acquisition -> "<person>" [label="P23_transferred_title_from"];
sub_acquisition -> "<thesaurus/acquisition/bequeathed_by>" [label="P2_has_type"];
}
{flowchart}

Here is a practical example:

Here is how this will be modeled ({color:red}Vlado: this graph does NOT express what the Acquisition Comment says{color}):
{flowchart} !assoc-code-subevent2.png!
node [shape=box fontname=Arial fontsize=10 width=0 height=0];
edge [fontname=Arial fontsize=10];
acquisition [label="<obj/acquisition>\na E8_Acquisition"];
sub_acquisition1 [label="<obj/acquisition/1>\na E8_Acquisition"];
sub_acquisition2 [label="<obj/acquisition/2>\na E8_Acquisition"];

sub_acquisition1 -> "Cecil French" [label="P23_transferred_title_from"];
sub_acquisition1 -> "<thesaurus/acquisition/bequeathed_by>" [label="P2_has_type"];

sub_acquisition2 -> "Barbizon House" [label="P11_had_participant"];
sub_acquisition2 -> "<thesaurus/acquisition/purchased>" [label="P2_has_type"];

acquisition -> sub_acquisition1 [label="P9_consists_of"];
acquisition -> sub_acquisition2 [label="P9_consists_of"];
acquisition -> "the-british-museum" [label="P22_transferred_title_to"];
{flowchart}

This graph correctly represents the comments above (we can additionally say that acquisition/1 is likely before acquisition/2, and acquisition/2 is before acquisition/3).
However, it cannot be deduced from the source since Merlin only has a bag of Acquisition associations, not proper Acquisition events
{code}
which is depicted below:
{flowchart} !code-in-assoc-formerly-attributed.png!
node [shape=box fontname=Arial fontsize=10 width=0 height=0];
edge [fontname=Arial fontsize=10];
production [label="<obj/production/M>\na E12_Production"];
association [label="<obj/production/M/association>\na bmo:EX_Association"];
"P14_carried_out_by" [shape=none];
{edge [weight=100];
production -> "P14_carried_out_by" -> "<person>";
}
association -> production [label="P140_assigned_attribute_to"];
association -> "<person>" [label="P141_assigned"];
association -> "P14_carried_out_by" [label="bmo:PX_property"];
association -> "<thes/likelihood/formerly-attributed-to>" [label="P2_has_type"];
{rank=same;
association; "P14_carried_out_by"
}
