Coordinated set of logical services
Introduction to the notion
The services apply to the same class (the same notion). “Unit” services are distinguished from “set” oriented services. The machines in a workshop can work together through delegation.
Depending on their origin, we distinguish between different types of logical machines:
- Business Logical Machines (BLM) or “distributors” implement a semantic class.
- Organization Logical Machines (OLM) or “orchestrators” express organizational decisions. They are defined using a criterion which can be the use case, type of actor, process, etc.
- Other machines emerge from logical or technical considerations. They are sometimes referred to as “transversal machines” or “utilities”. They provide general facilities such as event management or encoding.
