  title={Ontological Analysis of Functional Decomposition},
  author={Patryk Burek and Heinrich Herre and Frank Loebe},
Functional decomposition is a popular technique applied not only in software engineering but also in business modeling and in technical devices design. As its principle it takes a functional view on a system and analyzes it in terms of functions. However, despite its popularity the notion of functional decomposition seems not to be clear-cut and as such may lead to ambiguities in models based on it. The current paper presents the results of the ontological analysis of the notion of functional… CONTINUE READING
