In the era of cloud computing, data is processed within the cloud, and data and its dependencies between systems or functions progress and change constantly within that cloud, as user requirements change. Such dynamic information worlds are called cyberworlds. We consider the Incrementally Modular Abstraction Hierarchy (IMAH) to be a suitable mathematical basis for modeling cyberworlds, with its ability to descend from the most abstract homotopy level to the most specific view level while preserving invariants. We have developed a data processing system called the Cellular Data System (CDS) based on IMAH. In this paper, we improve the numerical value calculation function of CDS. We show that, by taking advantage of numerical value identifiers, development of business application logic using continuous quantities becomes much simpler and significantly reduces development and maintenance costs of the system.
