Principle Language


Definition: A principle language is a principle catalog where each principle is linked to those other principles it is related to, such that the consideration of one principle automatically leads to complementary and contrary principles as well as to generalizations and specializations of that principle.


In order to find a set of principles which is applicable to a certain design problem, one can start with one relevant principle and the principle language helps to find other related principles which fit into the demanded set. Complementary and contrary principles help finding further aspects to consider whereas generalizations and specializations may be used instead of a previously considered principle in order to find a level of abstraction that fits the problem better.
