||Dynamic information system for modeling processes
||Diederiks H J, Van Staveren R J
||DINAMO is a dynamic Information System for Modeling of Design Processes. It isintended for use along with product models, data management systems and existingapplications. In DINAMO a programming user can define processes. These processesare represented by graphs. The graphs are characterized by nodes and relationsbetween nodes. Each node in a graph represents a task, and each relation can berestricted to conditions. So the way in which a process is actually been performed,that is the actual path to be evaluated through the graph, can depend on certainconditions. Processes and functions (= software modules) are available to the user astasks. A consuming user can activate tasks; the DINAMO system regulates thedispatch of the tasks, conform the process and function definitions.Tasks are collected on sheets; sheets are collected in a task box. A task box can beregarded as a certain environment, determined by the programming user. A consuming user can choose between the environments which are available at that moment.With the DINAMO system software and process definitions can be re-used in asimple way.
