Knowledge Architect/Operation/Modeling

Modeling

Modeling is a fundamental knowledge architecture process, allowing the projection of N-dimensional mental models onto rendered (e.g. artifact) views.

More so, modeling is the most fundamental knowledge sharing process, as rendered views become accessible to others.

Views can be rendered to any form of representation, including text in any language, graphics in any form including 2D, 3D, and Brail, any form of structured sound, or any other form of representation, or to any combination of them.

Modeling also allows these views to be used to infer further “mental” models, as well as computing-system-based models.

Models are typically designed to be considered from different viewpoints and perspectives, projecting resulting views through viewports for rendering.

These views, like all other views, can be further analyzed, considered, correlated, processed, and used to infer further mental and computer-system-based models.

Has reflected in the section menu, this section further briefly considers modeling, first in relation to knowledge architecture, then more specifically at its input and output notation aspects, with some of the impacts of a generalized structured representation approach. The section then reviews the modeling process cycles, first with the main conceptual modeling cycles, and then with the instance modeling cycles, providing a modeling cycles diagram between the two.
