A projection of a complete model of some situation or system composed from different partial perspectives ( or views) on to a particular subject.
J. LIND (2000, p. 640-1), who proposes this… view, distinguishes:
- the task view through which a task hierarchy is generated to determine the basic problem solving capacity or possibilities available
- the environment view which considers the nature of the relationship of the system with its environment
- the role view which "determines the functional constraints that characterize the capabilities of the different active agents"
- the interaction view which considers how the needed communications among active agents must be ordered in function of the pursued goals
- the society view seeks a model consistent with the roles as they are accepted and interconnected within the society
- the architectural view "is a projection of the general organization needed to manage a specific situation. It includes for ex. "agent management or database integration"
- "the system view which seeks a kind of final coordination dealing "with aspects that affect several of the other views at the same time or even the system as a whole ( loosely summarized from A. LIND's paper, who aims at practical management uses)
