Sample text

2 When buying food for this evening’s meal, we specify that the greengrocer should provide lkg of ripe peaches. The referent is the peaches, characterized by two black box attributes: weight and ripeness. The concept of weight has a standard definition, and even the value of the attribute is defined by its measure: lkg. Given a pair of properly calibrated scales and the greengrocer’s elementary skill of using the scales, it is easy to test that the referent meets the weight requirement. 34 A First Systems Book The applicability to peaches of the second attribute - ripeness is well established, although this concept is more ambiguous, and, to the best knowledge of the authors, there is no agreed scale for measuring it.

Add reasonable values for the timing of the products if the two processes have duration values of tl, t 2 . Key concepts 4. 43 The process of dropping a raw egg terminates in an abrupt change of attributes. 12. Label each subprocess and the input and output product of each. Which, if any, of the attributes of the referent change over the first process? How about the second process? According to your estimation, what might be the duration of each subprocess? 12: Two processes in sequence (b-type key) 5.

For this, the referent must be modelled over a time period. 9 is the usual reminder of the modelling process. To model a referent as a process, we must regard it as an activity, bearing in mind its input, the passive entity which gives rise to the activity, and its output - the passive entity emerging at the conclusion of the activity. Both the input and output will be modelled as products. 9: Modelling the referent as a process We may now define: process representation of the referent as an activity which transforms an input product into an output product over a period of time Any referent may be modelled as a product or a process.
