Modeling Instantiation Process Cycles

Knowledge architecture is the key to effective modeling, and effective modeling does not stop here, as knowledge architecture based models can also often be instantiated (e.g. model execution).

Models and views represent problem-domain knowledge resources, which can already exist in physical, virtual, or conceptual resources, or they may also be hypothetical, projected, or future resources, in which case, at some point in the modeling process it may be useful to instantiate them so they can exist and operate, directly in the problem domain they were designed for.

In a simple case, for example, a modeled person resource could be instantiated to a person record in a database, or a modeled application module could be instantiated to executable code in the corresponding application framework.

What modeled resources get instantiated to, depends on the effective problem and on the modeling purpose, but the important factor is that, not just theoretical abstractions, models can be instantiated to effective and practical resources, and, from a design tool, modeling becomes a management tool.

More so, as instantiated models can now be connected to the “real-world”, the next logical step is to also support reverse modeling, where existing, “unmodeled” resources, can now be automatically mapped to corresponding models, used for further modeling cycles, as well as modified and transformed, to be instantiated back to their “real-world”.

At this point, modeling becomes a powerful management, and governance tool and process, allowing order of magnitude increase in complexity management, while in fact, simplifying and improving corresponding user interface by an additional order of magnitude.

In a 5D environment, for example, humans, through advanced avatars, can now manage highly complex environments, like crisis and emergency preparedness and response collaboration environments, or interactively monitor and control all electrical devices, in all 3500 outlets, in 240 countries, for a major fast food restaurant chain, ensuring uniform quality and safety control, for example, or managing atomic power plant operations, or any process or anything else, especially where complexity is high, all through engaging and responsive, interactive, structured, and entitled graphical environment interfaces.
