Abstract

An understanding of knowledge artifacts such as patterns is a necessary prerequisite for any subsequent action. In this article, as an initial step for formulating a theoretical basis for patterns, a conceptual model of primitive viewpoints is proposed and, by exploring one of the viewpoints, a conceptual model for stakeholders of a pattern is presented. This is followed by the description of a conceptual model of a process, namely P3, for the production of patterns. The workflows of P3 highlight, as appropriate, the interface of patterns to humans and/or machines. The implications of the Semantic Web and the Social Web towards P3 are briefly discussed.
