For a given Scale, any useful number of Scale-Qualifiers can be defined.

Scale: Time to learn a defined [Task]. “Task is a Scale-Qualifier.”

Scale-Qualifiers are Generic; each Scale-Qualifier needs to be explicitly assigned a corresponding “Scale-Qualifier-Definition (unless a Default is being used) when the Scale is used in other Parameter statements (such as any Benchmarks or targets).

Goal [Task = Setup]: 10 minutes. “Setup is a Scale-Qualifier-Definition defining the Scale-Qualifier Task that was defined in the previous example”

The purpose of Scale-Qualifiers is to allow a Scale specification to be more generalized and flexible; this consequently makes a Scale specification more reusable.
