The algebraic operators Associator, and EquiKeep are implemented in SQL language with the following new SQL primitives proposed by Timaran (2005):
(1) Let us emphasize that we use 19 of Miller's 20 subsystems respectively our equivalent functional elements (with integrating the timer in the decider, and using our functional element decoder twice, plus two comparators and an AND-Gate to make up Miller's associator).
Information processing subsystems such as the decoder, associator and decider provide mechanisms to enable information exchange (between units), storage and retrieval and learning.
These two needs--the need for private security and public communication--are essentially contradictory, and thus necessitate the subsystem processes of boundary, converter, transducer, associator, and recoder.
For the customer perspective, it appears that these seven critical subsystems for information would be emphasized: input transducer, decoder, associator, memory, decider, encoder and output transducer.
Associator. The subsystem that carries out the first stage of the learning process, forming enduring associations among items of information in the system.
They are (11) input transducer, (12) internal transducer, (13) channel and net, (14) timer, (15) decoder, (16) associator, (17) memory, (18) decider, (19) encoder, and (20) output transducer.
Associator. No system at this level has an associator subsystem; this subsystem is downwardly dispersed to individual persons or, occasionally, outwardly dispersed to operations researchers or management consultants from another organization; an artifact such as a computer may do some associating for an organization.
(d) coordination (governance): associator, memory, decider, timer, and reproducer.
Associator should then, in respect to the central administration of the city, comprise the heads of central administrative organs but also persons with unique knowledge should be included in this function.
At the global level there is a need for the subsystem associator. The associator is defined as `the subsystem which carries out the first stage of the learning process, forming enduring associations among items of information in the system' (Miller, 1978).
