Detailing

Scope can apply to anything, like a specification, or a specified System or project.

The “extent of influence” can be described in any useful terms. This includes using any Planguage expressions or Parameters.

For example, any [time, place, event] Qualifier Conditions, and any other Parameters, such as “Stakeholders”, can define the extent of influence of a specific specification within the System Scope.

Notes

1. There are two especially useful notions of Scope:

• Global Scope: global Scope specifications (potentially) influence or dictate something (like a Constraint) to all areas of a defined System, unless some overriding or higher-priority specification cancels its influence. For example, “Project Scope” [HOOKS01, pages 43-58].

• Local Scope: a local specification is unable and unwilling to influence or determine specifications (Requirements, designs) beyond a defined sub-System area.
