General Notes

A feature must be observable either through use of a software tool or human observation of a rendering of the object.


  • PaaST (0.11) 2016 (†778 ): PaaST adopts the concept of Feature from UML [Unified Modeling Language], where a Feature is either an attribute or a behavior of an object. (†1974)
  • PaaST (1.0) 2017 (†860 p. 26): If an IntellectualEntity is not a PreservationTarget, then its Features might be subject to change and, therefore, would not be deemed permanent. (†2508)
