Notes

1. Performance and Resource Attributes are Scalar.

2. Scalar Attributes, provided they are not Elementary (one Scale only), can have numerous Scales of Measure (A Complex Scalar Attribute will possess more than one Elementary Attribute.)

3. All numeric Levels on Scales of Measure can be described as Scalar values.

4. A Scalar object can be contrasted to a Binary object, which is not Scalar, but is in one of two states (commonly, either present or absent).
