Scalability is one of the core requirements of OSE Specifications.

There are two forms of Scalability: intensive and extensive. See Intensive and Extensive Scalability

Intensive refers to increasing size by enlarging. Extensive refers to increasing size by adding multiples or additional modules.


Scalability may occur in at least two ways:

  • Intensive - enlarging a component or unit
  • Extensive - adding multiples of a component or unit in layers (such as metal plates) or via stacking (such as using multiple Power Cubes)
