Notes

1. Side-Effects can be evaluated at a design stage and/or observed at an implementation stage, or even operational or decommissioning stage. Conventional usage of “Side-Effect” implies “negative effects”, but positive Side-Effects can be just as likely and, just as interesting!

2. Side-Effects can be of the following categories: “intended or unintended” “known or unknown” and “negative, neutral or positive”.

“Intended” Means that we have chosen the design because we knew about and valued those particular Side-Effects.

“Known” Means we were aware of the existence and possibly the Levels of the Side-Effects.

“Unknown” Means we were not initially aware of the Side-Effects, but may have become aware of them at some later stage of considering the design (such as in testing, in a review or in operation).
