Subject: Com Metrics and Subjects; Design Support

Dear Morris,

Subject indexing can be strengthened. It will never be perfect. SDS works a lot better than other methods. Getting more and smarter people to work with it will improve the design, and yield even better results.

Please let me know what you think about using SDS for design support. An example is the record on May 5. Subject indexing and linking make design for a building, a car, software or a chip, an integral part of a larger objective, which may help solve motivational issues discussed this evening.
