The aim of this chapter is to explore how ‘standard’ is the application of process type analysis: to what degree does the community of practitioners concur in their application of the theory. To this end, the authors prepared 32 clauses, ranging from those reasonably clear as to process type to those which are very difficult to code. These examples were placed on a web-page, which allowed a coder to assign a process type to each clause, and invited the coder to comment on their reasoning. Then, the authors solicited readers of Sysfling and Sys-func to complete the coding. Seventy-five people responded.
