Can we help people understand the similarities and differences between an ontic
view of a thing and a transaction or flow view of the same thing?
For decades in industry there has been the engineering Bill of Materials and
the Manufacturing Assembly or Routings view. Today, when engineers engage in
ontic analysis they inevitably clutter up the picture with cause-effect stories. (01)
Why is an ontology that identifies every element, interrelationship and
behavior of a thing not a model of that thing viewed as a system? (02)
