- Actors: or the employees are listed and analyzed in a way that their responsibility for implementing the changes in the system or making the system is highlighted.

- Transformation: this includes the analysis of the change that has been bought into the system or the process. Also the nature of these changes is listed. The changes include actually defining what all transformations Input underwent to finally become the Output.

- Weltanschauung: means “worldwide”. This step of the analysis means that the system has to be analyzed in the wider context with details by understanding the relevance of each of the process that is to be followed in the system. Each and every explanation has to have a proper justification for its existence.

- Owner: this includes identification of the stakeholders as owners or entrepreneur or investor or project manager who has authority to handle the project.
