Introduction[edit]

Scalability is one of the core requirements of OSE Specifications.

There are two forms of Scalability: intensive and extensive. See Intensive and Extensive Scalability

Intensive refers to increasing size by enlarging. Extensive refers to increasing size by adding multiples or additional modules.

Details[edit]

Scalability may occur in at least two ways:

  • Intensive - enlarging a component or unit
  • Extensive - adding multiples of a component or unit in layers (such as metal plates) or via stacking (such as using multiple Power Cubes)
