- Conceptual specifications are partitioned into functional subsystems
capable of carrying
out a workable portion of the concept. Conceptual specifications
deal in "what must be accomplished," never
in "how we accomplish something." Such "conceptual integrity provides a major enabler for
reuse." [Schultz 9406]
