Presented in this short document is a description of what we call "Partitioning" and "Positioning". Partitioning is the notion of decomposing the problem into smaller subproblems along its “hierarchical” (Kelly and Zyngier, 2008), “structural” (Kelly and Mann, 2004), “operational” (Kelly, 2006), “temporal” (Kelly, 2002) and now “phenomenological” (Kelly, 2003, Kelly and Mann, 2003, Kelly and Zyngier, 2014 and Menezes, 2014) dimensions. Positioning is the ability to configure the lower and upper hard bounds and target soft bounds for any timeperiod over the future timehorizon within the problem or subproblem and is especially useful to fix variables (i.e., its lower and upper bounds are set equal) which will ultimately remove or exclude these variables from the solver’s model or matrix.
