A collection of resources that enable the execution of program instructions. These resources can include virtual memory, I/O descriptors, a runtime stack, signal handlers, user and group ids, and access control tokens.

The primitive Biometric function of processing the captured data into a usable form that can be used for verifying, identifying or enrolling.
A function or activity identified in the logical architecture view of the National ITS Architecture that is required to support the ITS user service requirements. The logical architecture presents processes in a top-down fashion beginning with general processes (e.g., "Manage Traffic") that are then decomposed into more detailed processes (e.g., "Provide Traffic Surveillance", "Monitor HOV Lane Use"). General processes are defined in terms of more detailed processes using data flow diagrams. The most detailed processes (sometimes called primitives) are defined in Process Specifications (PSpecs). Select "Logical Architecture" from the main menu to see a complete list of processes including general processes that are defined with data flow diagrams and detailed processes that are defined with process specifications. View the Logical Architecture Processes Page.

A Course in Miracles emphasizes that within the dream of separation forgiveness occurs over time, and is therefore a process of growth; our fear of God's Love is so great that we cling to our specialness as protection, and thus we must learn gently and patiently that the ego's guilt and attack reinforce pain, while the Holy Spirit's forgiveness leads to joy. see: periods of unsettling

is a model of business behavior. Usually it is a normative model showing, how things should be done. Process has different connotation on different levels; in organizations it describes behavior, in EE it describes capability to behave, and in VE a model represented to customer of how to interact with the consortium. If a plan is a notion used in connection to consortium based on EE, process is a notion in connection to VE. At the time DE and VE become one-to-one, plan and process do so also.

Process are the inks printers use when printing in more than 1 color. There are 4 process inks: cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK). Most printed pieces that appear to have many colors are actually made up of dots of a combination of the 4 process colors. Not all colors "translate" perfectly into process. Most 4-color digital presses also use CMYK, there just aren't any dots- these are 4 "toners" instead of inks. [Back
