T4.2—Draft Economic Sustainability Reference Model (Summary)


The purpose of a reference model is to help cut through complexity and highlight key concepts, relationships, and decision points in a complex problem space. It should also help the user of the reference model to benchmark and compare their own local models with an exemplar which has broad acceptance from a community that is relevant to the activity in question. It is clear that the economics of sustaining digital assets (by means of digital curation) is exactly the kind of complex area that might benefit from such a reference model.
