Title
Toward evolvable document management for study programs based on modular aggregation patterns
Author
Abstract
Despite technological and operational business advances over the past decades, organizations are still required to draft and manage documents. Although a lot of these documents have taken an electronic form, their structure is in essence still the same as their analogue and physical predecessors. In this paper, we present a different view of documents as we imagine them as modular structures. Based on the patterns of the artifacts they describe, documents can be modularized and decomposed into fine-grained text modules. This leads to easier maintenance of the text modules as they offer a clear aggregate structure and any information is stored in only one text module. This enables re-usability and allows for a greater versatility of the information stored in the text modules. One can generate several new types of documents with different purposes as to the ones imaginable at this moment. All of this enables the creation of truly evolvable documents according to the Normalized Systems theory.
