Daily Word: Granularity

Dear Friends and Visitors:

Today's word is GRANULARITY. The word that is the essence of this term is "granule" which means a minute or tiny amount like the size of a grain, from the literal side. From the conceptual side, granularity is how we refer to complex systems and the details in that system and especially how specific it is we want to get regarding such details.

In software documentation, you can write about a system with little granularity - with just high point drawings and charts showing major points. On the other hand, you can write about a system using software that details code and specific elements of code and code blocks and in this way you are really discussing the system with a high degree of GRANULARITY.

Best Regards, Keith
