Process

An algorithm, process, or program created with sequence(s) of nodes.

Node

A Universal Computing Element (UCE) containing a unique piece of logic. Nodes can also feature functions, timers, and counters.

Queue

The queue of tasks in the node.

Tasks

A set of parameters characterizing the information passing through the nodes of the process. Tasks will be routed and transformed according to the logic and functions of the nodes.

Functions

Actions that are performed on the tasks from the queue in each node. Functions may be in the form of API, program code, other processes, etc.

Logic

Tools for defining how tasks are processed through a node. May be system or user-defined, as discussed further in Node Logic.

System Logic

  • T - specifies how long a task can stay in a node.
  • N - specifies the number of tasks that can stay in the queue in a node.

Counters

Show only value without any actions (unlike logic). Also may be system and user.

Tact

The transfer of a task from one node to another.
