At one level of abstraction, a plastic leaf bag tailored to look like a pumpkin is blatantly obvious: It's a combination of a known plastic leaf bag designed to hold leaves and teaching that stuffed paper bags can be decorated to look like a jack-o-lantern.
The architect must see these biases and seek the whole picture process and then pick the right level of abstraction. Therefore, to confine the architecture to only one level of war can make the architecture poor.
By generically modelling systems at this high level of abstraction, designers are able to forestall fixation upon particular solutions that may prove severely limiting.
This framework suggests several mental processes, which can be interpreted as a reduction of the level of abstraction, that students employ unconsciously while trying to cope with problem solving situations.
Achieving this value requires effective management of the multiple components that make up the heterogeneous enterprise storage environment and a management layer that operates at a high level of abstraction, a level at which you can, in effect, virtualize the management of the underlying components.
