Exemplar Analysis

Problem: How do we go from an exemplar to a pattern?

Solution: Perform an analysis of the exemplar. Identify the key entities involved in the pattern, the points of variability, a definition of the information that needs to be provided by a user of the pattern, the rules to be used to calculate any additional information needed by the pattern, and the aspects of the pattern that stay the same across applications of the pattern.
