Representation of Design Artifacts
This chapter introduces the first part of Formal Design Theory (FDT): representation of design artifacts. The main goal is to lay out a domain independent modeling of design artifacts. The “minimalist” reader may skip over section 4.2.3, which provides an analysis of the artifact representation scheme, and proceed directly to the next chapter.
