Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: A 'type$' indicator for an '$opt$' or '$arg$' is for documentation only. It may use a "pattern helper", a human-friendly String, or a SysML-similar short-hand type representation. It need not correspond to a valid Pattern.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: A '$Q$' in a function variant name indicates that it is a variant where every argument is strictly either a Quantity or dimensionless Real. Compare with '$SI$' functions.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: An '$E$' or '$EQ$' in a function name indicates that it is symbolic (takes Blank expression arguments), but the absence of '$E$' or '$EQ$' does not necessarily imply that it does not take Blank arguments.

Webel: SysML4Mathematica: An '@*~' prefix in a @pseudo function (OpaqueBehavior or Activity) represents a cast from any expression to a Type. Example: '@*~OpenerView' casts from any expression to an OpenerView. '@Type~' casts from a specific Type.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: An '$SI$' in a function variant name indicates that all arguments are SI Real convention (no Quantity arguments with units). An '$SI$' function can also be used to generate '$C$' compiled function variants.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: A '$C$' in a function name indicates that it is a compiled variant. Typically it is compiled from an '$E$' symbolic function or an '$SI$' Real convention function.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: An '$E$' in a function name indicates that it is symbolic (takes Blank expression arguments). An '$E$' function can also be used with Quantity inputs and can be used to generate '$C$' compiled function variants.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: A '$EQ$' in a function name indicates that it is a symbolic equation (with LHS == RHS). An '$EQ$ function can be used in combination with 'sym$' markup to create human-friendly formatted equations.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: Entity "field definers" are prefixed with '$e$[pac]' (where '[pac]' is a nickname for a package or logical grouping) and carry String field names. EntityStore functions are prefixed with 'e$[pac]'.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: The Stereotype keyword «functional» indicates a "pseudo functional" representation of functional in SysML. There are limits to representation of functional programming in SysML, but it can be informative and is worth doing.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: A '$t$' prefix indicates a String help holder with a "pseudo type" indicator (for human friendly documentation only). Used by the Doc`, HelpF`, and HelpO` packages.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: A function's description (but not its signature, arguments, or options) may be captured as an '$info$f$' Stringhelp holder for use by the Doc` package for ::usage generation and the HelpF`& HelpO` help registry packages.

Webel: Mathematica: A help Rule 'rule$opt$' for an '$opt$' (option) accepts keys: '$k$help' (required), '$k$def' (required), and optional '$k$warn', '$k$tip', '$k$lab' (a label), '$k$type' (indicator only), '$k$mult' (SysML multiplicity), and '$k$pat'.

Webel: Mathematica: A help Rule 'rule$arg' for an '$arg$' (argument) accepts keys: '$k$help' (required), '$k$def' (required if $k$req = True not given), '$k$req' (True if $k$def not given), '$k$warn', '$k$tip', '$k$lab', '$k$type', '$k$mult' and '$k$pat'

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: An '$opt$' (option) or '$arg$ (argument) help holder may be have an associated (typically short) '$lab$opt$' or '$lab$arg$' label help holder for use in GUIs and views.

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: Where keys of Associations are Strings they are encapsulated as variables prefixed with '$k$' (promotes DRY and has many advantages, such as IDE prompting). Direct use of "Strings" as keys is WET and strongly discouraged!

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: "pattern helpers" (which are not themselves Patterns) use the prefix '$pat$. Encapsulated Patterns use a 'pat$' prefix, and may use a '$pat$' pattern helper (such as an Alternatives).

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: Argument help holders use a String variable with the prefix '$arg$', a related '$info$arg$' String, a 'def$arg$' default value expression and/or 'req$arg$', and optional '$warn$arg$', '$tip$arg$, '$lab$arg$', 'type$arg$'..

Webel: SysML: Heard of "follow the money"? In MBSE we "follow the flows"! Identify requests, data packets, messages, signals early on and use ItemFlow as often as you can wherever you can! Adopt a signal processing mindset throughout (systems thinking).

Webel: SysML1.7: Port contract matching is Feature-based, not Type-based. There's nothing particularly magical or special about use of an ~InterfaceBlock on a "conjugating" SysML Port, it's just a convenient way of managing one-to-one Feature matching!

Webel: Psy/MPsy: Psychrometrics for Mathematica: Convention: Option variable names are prefixed with '$opt$psy'

Webel: Mathematica: CONVENTION: Option help holders use a String variable with the prefix '$opt$', a related '$info$opt$' String, a 'def$opt$' default value expression, and optional '$warn$opt$', '$tip$opt$', '$lab$opt$', and 'type$opt$' indicator ...

Mathematica: TIP: Protecting against computations breaking verbosely because of Null, None, Undefined. And about using Undefined as a return policy.

Mathematica: The Webel Units` package has Quantity variables for frequently used units using a naming convention 'unit$[Symbol]' or 'unit[DescriptiveName]' or unit[Acronym], each with a corresponding '$unit...' for the units identifier String(s).

Mathematica: Webel: You CAN/MAY use $ in variable names and function names - just not as the first character before a Capital - and it's extremely useful. You won't get sent to Azkaban prison if do you use a $ character!

In the Webel terminology for a basic control loop there is an 'aim' value (controlled via an actuator) and a 'got' value (a value read from a sensor). The 'got' value is NOT necessarily exactly the same as the actual physical value.

SysML: When using Property::defaultValue and Property::redefinedValue to carry a "shadow hierarchy" of redefinitions across an entire system hierarchy, considering using a user-defined keyword such as «configuration» or «scenario» on each redefining Block

Webel: UML/SysML: Navigation: ALWAYS offer a way out of a diagram (usually up a hierarchy, but possibly across) using a navigable symbol (linked to a diagram) and/or a diagram symbol. Avoid "cul-de-sacs"! [But beware of shared package cross-dependencies]

SysML: HOWTO Safely incorporate ConstraintBlock equations from a library into a project with local ValueType variants: CASE: SysPhS vs ISO-80000 ModelLibrary

Webel: SysML: Electronics: DO NOT represent a jack/socket as a dumb proxy. Imagine it can introduce some signal noise or other effect (such as buzz) to test it is a physical model.

In the Webel recipe for UML/SysML, the pattern of progressive redefinition of end Properties of Associations between progressively more specialised pairs of Blocks at the same level of abstraction is informally called a "redefinition ladder"
