The software aspect has disappeared from Praxeme version 2. In the Enterprise System Topology, the logistic aspect integrates the software components as well as the types of equipment. This new distribution facilitates the passage from the logical design of the system to its construction. For example, the logical model can describe, in the abstract, a subsystem. This logical specification is translated into technical terms in the logistic aspect, by keeping the unity of the subsystem. Through its logistic aspect, the subsystem is seen as a hardware unit, potentially equipped with software intelligence.
