This article guides you to set up a system and organize your projects so that it helps you become more productive. A well organized file or folder structure and a mental workflow that process information makes one very efficient organizing information and saves from clutter and frustration.
It is not uncommon to have files lying all over the place, as days pass by we accumulate lots of data which may or may not be useful all the time. If there is piece of information that lays somewhere and is not retrievable when needed it is as good as not existing. The aim of this article is to solve this problem by setting up a system that works for you and it becomes foundation for productivity.
Let us call this system “Fluid”.
Core Ideas borrowed from TOGAF
- Enterprise Continuum
- describes a view of the Architecture Repository that provides methods for classifying architecture and solution artifacts
- showing how the different types of artifact evolve
- how they can be leveraged and re-used
- Architecture Partitioning
- describes the various characteristics that can be applied to classify and then partition architectures
- Architecture Repository
- shows how the abstract classifications of architecture can be applied to a repository structure so that architectures can be organized and easily accessed
- Tools for Architecture Development
- provides guidelines on selecting a toolset to create and manage artifacts
Scope of Fluid
- It should provide an easy method to capture new information
- It should provide a method for classifying information
- It should have core structure and provide extension to handle more domain specific information
- The structure should be maintainable and information should be easily retrievable
- It should embrace re-usablility
