Definition Last Updated 17-Dec-2015 12:51

A rule determines one state from another according to the results of applying particular criteria to the values of specified characteristics. Because capability is the fundamental type describing the evolution of states, a rule may be seen as an essential part of the description or specification of a capability; rules can have no effect without systems to give effect to them, i.e. to realise the capabilities they describe.
