Each sentence is translated into DNOK and FNOK forms separately.
In order to prepare the sentences from the fable to be entered into the relational database, they need to be represented in a formalized FNOK form.
This paper presents the application of the conceptual framework NOK and DNOK formalism, which is used to present the sentences graphically in the form of a diagram, and FNOK formalism, where the sentences are presented in a formalized form.
One of the things that FNOK has been working on is to make sure that there aren't two tracks within its organization: Those that do lean and Six Sigma and those who do the actual work.
