The Segments of the Design System

Lay out your application in order to match the environment. Segments ease the navigation.

A segment:

  • Has a name.
  • Is reusable.
  • Is defined but can evolve over time.



Segments are a division of a greater set, that can be described as homogeneous and meaningful. A segment is defined by a number of criteria:

  • A characteristic (attribute)
  • A condition (operator)
  • A or multiple values

Criteria can be linked to each other using an operator, e.g. AND and OR.


Each characteristic is associated with a condition.

On-the-Fly Segments

This mechanism enables users to create criteria on the fly to their segments, and immediately see what impact(s) it has on the page. These can be saved and reused.


On-the-Fly segments are also used as contextual definers when creating Analysis.
