I thought it was complicated, but your intro made it simple enough to follow (I hope that was the intent!). Then toward the end, you made a statement that made me wonder.... And I recall those engineering classes, I fell asleep in two before I gave up on engineering (bad teachers). I actually completed Diff E-Q (only non-engineer in the class), Mathematical Models, Calculus 1 through 3; I was computer science track, so I was math/physics heavy. However, this was all twenty five plus years ago, and I do not use any of it professionally/personally.
I was attempting to make the big picture followable. Glad to hear it mostly worked... Thanks!
The biggest problem with things like this is that any errors get cascaded. The untrained types could at least then have some idea what the big picture looked like, and the trained types could then start executing the pieces and do the whole thing. Once you start down that path, spar design is all very doable and can fit on a couple good sized spreadsheet pages using the scheme I covered.
Now, what made you wonder?
