SPG (System-Process-Goal) Approach
A Patern for an Integrated Behavioral and Functional  Representation of Artificial Systems
TOGA's Abstract Intelligent Agent Perspective

Adam Maria Gadomski - ENEA, Italy 

Area of interests ..among others: Frameworks for the representation of the domains of activity of an abstract intelligent agent - intelligent agents ontologies, and...human-technology systems/interactions.
    An abstract intelligent agent can be seen as a cognitive model of humans in the roles of plant operator, plant designers and managers. It should be useful for the design artificial intelligent systems.

Summary of Research: 

    System-Process-Goal Approach (SPG) is a formal conceptualization framework (ontological frame) which integrates functional and behavioral points of view on goal-oriented artificial systems. SPG is considered as a conceptualization tool for system designers. Its main paradigms (Gadomski,1986) are the following:

    formal separation of the meaning of concepts function and process.

    definition of transitive, asymetric carrier relation between: system, process and function.

    formal decomposition of the abstract relation between a technological system and its design-goal.

SPG is a useful computational conceptualization for  complex plant design, identification and diagnostics. It is a conceptual element of the TOGA theory.
