MethodologyOverview

Is Abstract: 
no
Is Pattern: 
no
Definition: 

High level, descriptive, human informative methodology statement used to describe the overall methodology, identify related design, algorithm, and process information. A methodology is normally informed by earlier research and clarifies how earlier research methods were incorporated into the current work.
This would most commonly be used in a Codebook along with an AlgorithmOverview and a DesignOverview. Note that Process may be described in more detail than a high level overview.
Note that the algorithm may be implemented by multiple processes which are not limited to any specific type of Process . This can be constrained by the inclusion of only specific realizations of Process within a Functional View. Note that this MethodologyOverview can be used as a collective description of specific methodologies used by a Study or other broad set of metadata.
