Fragnet: Meaningful fragment of a network
I am a bit of a space buff and I've been reading some books the Space Shuttle. In one of them* the author discussed the management system for understanding how all the pieces of the spacecraft interconnected and interacted. This network is obviously too big to understand, so the system designers worked with a concept of "fragnets", fragments of the network which captured a meaningful subnet.
Sometimes having a term for something allows for seeing it existing places. Perhaps it can help you see a new perspective
Kinda related to my earlier post on heterarchies.
