Part 2: Normative Categorizations of the Components and Analysis

In this second part, the two component types of Results and Processes are given suggested normative categorizations. The reason for creating such categorizations is simple: with a common vocabulary exhaustively partitioning the concept space, speech between different users of the model is made much easier. This also gives us clear-cut targets for interaction analysis between the components. This fact is taken advantage of in chapter 5. The numbers of both Circumstances and Methods are nearly infinite, and thus, no definitive lists of them can be given.
