Setting up soft links to Oracle raw disks

I'd like to know of any documentation on how to set up soft links to Oracle raw disks on AIX. For example: /dev/rprod_2024_001 a soft link to a more meaningful name.
I have not worked extensively on the shell side of AIX, but I believe it is the same as for other Unix derivatives, use the "ln -s source_path target_link" command to create the link. I have googled for the AIX command and all sources I looked at show the ln command usage to be the same.
