We expect our models to be used live and support dynamic situations such as transactions, presentations and decision making. Use the right functions and functionality to keep the model nimble and structure to give fast feedback to the user.Read more
A model should do what is required of it and no more. Additional complexity and functionality just creates clutter that interferes with the user experience. Design the model to do what is required using the least functionality possible.Read more
