The Future of KK Systems

  • D. W. Challen
  • A. J. Hagger


A modern KK system is a living thing in two distinct senses — one obvious and one not so obvious. It ‘lives’ in the obvious sense that it is never really finished. Respecification and re-estimation are continuous as is revalidation and the search for fresh applications. Moreover, this continuous maintainance and rebuilding is typically carried out within the framework of an established tradition — often largely oral. The membership of the research team changes from year to year but the broad thrust of the work and its methodological foundations remain relatively fixed.
