International Workshop 28 Jan – 2 Feb 2011 Phoenix, AZ, USA 9 A process is a logical sequence of tasks performed to achieve a particular objective. A process defines the “WHAT” is to be done, without specifying the “HOW” each task is to be performed. A method consists of techniques for performing a task, the “HOW” of each task. The terms “method,” “technique,” practice,” and “procedure” can be used interchangeably in this context. Attributes: Thought patterns/processes Knowledge base Rules and heuristics Structure and order Notation A tool is an instrument that, when applied to a particular method, can enhance the efficiency of a task. Thus, methods help bridge the gap between process and tools. The purpose of the tool should be to facilitate the accomplishment of the “HOWs.” A methodology can be defined as a collection of related processes, methods, and tools. * Source: James N.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
