Table 2 : Comparison of customary schemes and the geometric approach

MEETING REPORT

CUSTOMARY SCHEMES GEOMETRIC APPROACH

fixed algebra, and hence algebra determined by the geometry

fixed relations

engineering behaviour defined use engineering behaviour to in terms of algebra determine algebra

single value used to quantify location in n-dimensional space behaviour classifies behaviour

same for all engineering schemes different engineering schemes have different components

'one size fits all', although methodology that allows engineering- experience can improve quality specific schemes to be developed

of application

allows global comparisons behaviour specific

we know how to make these work does the complexity outweigh the potential benefits?
