PANEL
DNAOS  GUI and publishing recursive construct; a panel can be used to hold the content of a page body or as part of another panel; panels can contain other panels, rows with cells, and content.

PARALLEL
As in parallel processing or concurrent processing; efficient way of processing data, especially with parallel or concurrent XML streams, as often in SOA and distributed  applications.

PARTY
A resource Owner resource archetype including: person, organization, project, application, and typically modeled with a green background.

PARTICLE
A relative density energy  structure. A structure since, like everything else, it - combines its substructures, as well as - combines in superstructures. The difference and specificity rest in structure and organization.

PATTERN
A characteristic and reproducible set of qualities and/or behaviors.

PERIOD
A Time span, typically as defined by ISO 8601. DNAOS time, duration, and periods are based on ISO 8601. DNAOS repeating periods and intervals extend ISO 8601.

PERSON
A party  archetype  resource, specific for each and every person the portal or its applications need to reference, including users, managers, clients, partners, suppliers, visitors, etc, if someone is referenced in any way, there has to be a corresponding person resource; DNAOS party archetypes, including company and person, are assigned roles that provide them with applications rights to other resources; party archetypes, person resources are also typically represented with a green background.

PERSPECTIVE
Perspectives are context-aware transformation  queries that determine "how" viewpoint query results are to be viewed. Perspectives are important model-to-view  projection  pipeline component resources that typically also define notations (e.g. languages) used for the resulting views. Perspectives may also typically define width, height, and depth of view, haze, focus, level of details, and projection mode (e.g. perspective, isomorphic, n-dimensional), as well as notations for the views. Perspective control (e.g. width, height, depth, angles, focus, mode) granularity is typically unlimited within the model space or universe.

PHASE
Action  sequence, typically part of an activity and often delimited by transition notifications.

PHENOMENON
A natural transformation  process  type or model. Action  sequence, typically part of an activity and often delimited by transition notifications.

PIPELINE
Pipelines are architectural processing and transformation  work-flow patterns, where resources (e.g information) are analyzed (e.g. metadata), processed, routed, and transformed as they stream through the pipeline, and where results of sub-processes are passed as input to subsequent sub-processes. Pipeline environments are typically parallelized where multiple pipelines can be defined to operate simultaneously, in parallel. Each pipeline is also typically branched into sub-pipelines that can also operate in parallel to each another. Transformations and control points can be defined at any step in the pipeline environment. Pipelines provide unequaled flexibility and performance.

PLACE
A location resource  archetype, and typically modeled with a green background.

POLE
An Axis limit.

POLICY
Relation  quality defining the access constraints of a resource on another one.

PORTAL
Portals collaborative distributed  network  application environments.

PREDICATE
Syntactic role played by a single component within an atomic sentence. The truth value of an atomic sentence in an interpretation is determined by the functional extension of the denotation of the predicate together with the denotations of the remaining components. A linguistic object, analogous to a verb, which says something about a resource or resources to which term(s) in the sentence refer. [ISO/IEC 24707:2007(E) and ISO TC97/SC5/WG3 TR 9007 (1982) inspired].

PRIVILEGE
Privileges, like rights, define resource responsibilities. DNAOS privileges are typically granted with resource  entitlement, membership, and access control assignments.

PROCESS
Knowledge  resource  Behavior encapsulation. See also:  schedule (e.g. time/period/event based) relations that typically nest, embed, aggregate, coordinate, orchestrate, and use contributing sub-processes, and tasks. Processes are also typically characterized by work-flow patterns (e.g. sequencing, synchronization, concurrency, parallelization, notification).

PROCESSING
A computing action analyzing and transforming data and information for a purpose.

PRODUCT
What organizations produce and market.

PROFILE
A collection of information on a specific subject, person, item, thing, place, etc; the profile is a structured information entity who's source information can be distributed over a variety of systems, formats, computers, and locations;

PROJECT
DNAOS manage different types of project including document development for web and print publishing, consulting and services, as well as sales of goods and solutions.

PROJECTING
modeling operation that uses viewpoints and perspectives to generate views of models. Projections are typically handled by a controller  process.

PROJECTION
The results of projecting  models from viewpoints, through perspectives, to generate or produce model views. Projections are typically pipelined  processes, as views are produced from the perspective transformations of the viewpoint extraction query results. While viewpoints determine "what" model resources are to be viewed, perspectives determine "how" these selected resources are to be viewed.

PROJECTION MODE
The projection mode (e.g. perspective, isomorphic, n-dimensional) sets view mode characteristics to define how the projected  views are graphically represented (e.g. notational aspects).

PROPERTY
A property is a simple information structure that associates an identifying or naming token to a value. The most simple qualities map to a single property. Property is also a general term used to refer to resources  owned in part or in whole by other resources.

PROPOSITION
A conceivable state of affairs concerning resources about which it is possible to assert or deny that such a state of affairs holds for those resources. [ISO TC97/SC5/WG3 TR 9007 (1982)] inspired.

PROTOCOL
A set of conventions and coding methods for information exchange.

PUBLISH
compound process to analyze, interpret, layout, paginate, present, publish, and navigate structured documents for print (e.g. PDF) and interactive media (e.g. Web).
