A fundamental concept that applies
in many engineering domains. An EngineeringComponent is an element of
a Device that is a physically whole object, such as one might
see listed as standard parts in a catalog. The main difference betweeen
EngineeringComponents and arbitrary globs of matter is that
EngineeringComponents are object-like in a modeling sense. Thus, an
EngineeringComponent is not an arbtrary subregion, but a part of a
system with a stable identity.
