    Dear all,
    We are gettiing close to a Research hardware definition document.
    We discussed this morning and would like to propose to name
    research hardware : physical object
    artifacts: each digital or analog objects related to the physical object
    documentation package: the bundle of all artifacts
    This would be depicted in Fig2 of the document, please comment in the google doc if you do not agree:
    I will go through the document next week and make sure the terms are used accordingly, unless there are discussions.
    Best regards,
