Sample text

As another example, a housing estate may be represented as a structure made up of blocks of flats related by the geography of the estate, each block of flats represented as a structure of individual flats and common areas, and each flat as interrelated rooms. Likewise, a university course can be represented as a structure made up of lectures, assignments, tutorials and examinations, a computer application as a structure of modules, an opera as a sequence of the overture and three acts. 8 Product When representing referents by a set of related attributes, we must bear in mind that attributes are liable to change.

2. What is the purpose of this diagram? Does it regard the Northern Line as a structure or as a black box, or has it elements of both? What features can be deduced from the figure regarding the line as a whole? What characteristics, if any, does the diagram reveal regarding the structure of the Northern Line? List some of the important characteristics of the line which can not be determined from the diagram. 2. For each of the following, identify system representations in common use: a set of traffic lights, timetable for the railway connection between London and Manchester, a recipe for tomato soup, a television set, a pair of spectacles, a ream of letter paper, a course of study, the month’s unemployment figures.

Sudden changes take place when an egg is dropped, when a bomb explodes, when lightning strikes. Some changes give rise to quantitative change in the attribute measures of the referent; others result in qualitative change: the acquisition of new attributes, the disappearance of an entity, the combination of two or more entities into one, or the emergence of a new entity. To observe change, we view the referent as an activity. For this, the referent must be modelled over a time period. 9 is the usual reminder of the modelling process.
