I contemplate writing a paper on automating fixing some inputs/parameters to specific values in a kind of workflow/pipeline definition language/system and looking for best terminology.
English is not my native language and I am not always confident in my wording and terminology use.
Among my motivations is a) obtaining a simple specification, with less inputs b) prevent abuse of computing resources
Is word fixing appropriate? The title 'Refining XXXX specification' sounds punchier and less ambiguous than 'Fixing inputs in XXXX specification to specific values', as fixing might be understood in the sense of correction, repair etc. Or is projecting a better word? abstracting out?
If fixation sound good as a term to describe result of partial replace of input?
PS Not sure is it relevant yet due to syntax restrictions of the spec language I plan resort to, in a way, conservative approximation of the original semantics that my allow for executions/parameter valuations absent in the original
Update 1. I think of Input Parameter Reduction
Update 2. Probably cody is right, seems like specializing good word, thought other suggestions not bad
