A comprehensive semantic indexing schema for ARCON
In order to formally and systematically address the elements in the ARCON models for CNs, a schema of their unique identification needs to be developed. This chapter introduces an approach for comprehensive and semantic “indexing” of both meta-elements, e.g. the Componential dimension of the Endogenous sub-space of ARCON’s reference modeling framework, and each individual element, e.g. the specific resource or market strategy belonging to the ARCON reference model of the CN. The main contribution of the introduced semantic indexing-schema is to the formalization process of the ARCON m. Furthermore, the indexing schema facilitates: (1) dynamic systematic evolution, (2) organized physical storage, (3) semi-automated processing and derivation of both elements and meta-elements of ARCON.
