The architectural and developmental aspects of an entity type, as well as data on the population of occurrences (see Ontogeny that have been created during the production phase of the type, or that exist.


Name1 Typogeny
Target Outcome The "average" environmental or socio-technical footprint of the members of the typogeny.
Social actors and roles Some of the role types that ontogenies may assume during their lifetime are included in the #picoJourneys list of the Actor Atlas.
Trigger or preceding interaction For artefacts, the design of the artefact, and its production processes.
Interfaces and services Organism members of a typogeny typically serve their offspring until it has reached a mature form. For mankind the services used during a lifetime are included in the Central Product Classification (CPC).
Inputs and outputs Inputs is what is consumed, output what is produced the members of a typogeny.
For mankind both the inputs consumed and outputs produced during a lifetime are included in the Central Product Classification (CPC). To the outputs, also emissions to the environment must be added.
Stores and tools The organism- and artefact-ontogenies that are part of a typogeny , depend on a range of products and services to sustain their "wellbeing". Besides eco-system services, many of these are described in the Central Product Classification (CPC).
Other characteristics
Part of a Phylogeny
Parts the ontogenies of the members of the type.
Succeeding Interactions Death or destruction (with or without recycling of materials or components of all members of the typogeny.
Alternatives Not applicable
Action Realm Operations, Monitoring & Evaluation and Change
Risks Risks exist in the biotope, the sociotope or the technotope where the members of the typogeny dwell.
