An inverse semigroup S is called proper if the equations ea = e = e2 together imply a2 = a for each a, e ∈ S. In this paper a construction is given for a large class of proper inverse semigroups in terms of groups and partially ordered sets; the semigroups in this class are called P-semigroups. It is shown that every inverse semigroup divides a P-semigroup in the sense that it is the image, under an idempotent separating homomorphism, of a full subsemigroup of a P-semigroup. Explicit divisions of this type are given for ω-bisimple semigroups, proper bisimple inverse semigroups, semilattices of groups and Brandt semigroups.
