Feature of a model of a given aspect that only contains elements related to this aspect, excluding any other kind of considerations


The term is, more often than not, used about semantic modeling. However, the notion applies to all aspects of the Enterprise System. We say that a semantic model is “pure” when it only expresses the semantic aspect, excluding considerations of any other kind. Purity is the result of applying the principle of abstraction.

This notion of purity is a consequence of the separation of concerns principle. The term is perhaps not well chosen.
