Data Links: These objects of the NetWeaver
function to request data about the real-world objects. They can also be
defined as the objects that have one-to-one relation with the real-life
objects and can be logically and mathematically manipulated. Thus, making
the knowledge representation in NetWeaver simple as well as insightful.
Moreover, these objects are reusable and can be referred as and when
Dependency Networks: The dependency networks in
NetWeaver play the central role in formulating the representation of the
problem. These dependency networks are used to interconnect different
objects in the object model. Therefore, they are considered to be the most
important factor in the object model of NetWeaver. Using the "New Network"
that is present in the network window can create a new dependency network.
Also, new dependency networks can be added in the object model in the later
stages without creating any interference with the already existing knowledge
Nodes: Nodes function to form the relation between
data links and dependency networks. Nodes are classified into logical nodes
and functional nodes. The logical nodes define the dependencies of the
network on its antecedents and the functional nodes are used to construct
the mathematical relation in the data links.
Evaluation Group: An evaluation group is a
user-defined collection of networks. An evaluation group specifies a
collection of networks that are conceptually relevant to one another and
that the knowledge base designer wants to see evaluated as a set.
