An application of the system entity structure is illustrated: a frame-like knowledge representation scheme is used to design local area networks (LANs). An entity structure for a data-link-layer protocol that illustrates many possible applications is introduced. The main concepts of the design methodology are illustrated using this example entity structure, and the underlying simulation environment is briefly discussed. The methodology aims to facilitate evaluation of a wide family of design alternatives and component combinations
