In this paper, we introduce the basic syntax and semantics for scrutinising DSMs in order to characterise the architecture of a complex system. Using this language, we then describe the process issues faced by clustering algorithms and use them to arrive at quantifiable signature measures for describing architectural types spanning the modular-integrated continuum. This language is demonstrated using a sequence of illustrative cartoons that are woven between the analysis of a more complex architecture of an industrial gas turbine.
