This part of the SP3T Systems Knowledge Base would also contain discriminations between the concepts of “structure” and “process” as well as between “process” and “pattern.” Some challenge whether certain entries in our initial list of ~50 SPs are actually processes. This is especially true for the universal structures we insist are built by processes. So to answer those challenges, one of our categories is explaining the “steps” for each candidate SP. This also helps identify specific dysfunctions.
