Am having some difficulty in a few areas here:
1) What do you mean by analysis vs design. I define analysis as the mapping
from some perception to an implementation-independent model of the
perception (PIM); design I define and the mapping from an
implementation-independent model to an implementation-dependent model (PSM).
2) Given this, I am not sure what exactly you are putting into the analysis
(or PIM) level, and what you are forbidding to go into that level -- because
I do a lot a modeling at this level.
3) Similarly for the PSM level: I am not sure what exactly you are putting
into the PSM level, and what you are forbidding to go into that level.
Lastly, am not sure that the Modeling TC should be addressing methodology
issue -- at least at this point. These are issues for the Methodology TC.
That way, we can focus on what we need to do to support agent-based modeling
*for any purpose* whether it be for analysis, design, or implementation.
That's why we created to different TCs.
