pp1d07 operare, operatio
Meaning "Operare", working. A dynamic process (a process in time, in duratio). "Agere" {3d02 agere, actio^passio} is a special type of working, when operation is from within (in se) and the operation is a sufficient condition for something to happen. Acting hence is relative to a specific effect. An operation can technically be an action relative to one effect and a passion (partial cause) relative to another (think of collateral damage). Things in alio like windmills and planetary systems "work" (operare) in the patere-sense. They do not act. More: [notes] to {3d02 agere, actio^passio NOT actu}
Subsets (kinds) There are two complement kinds of operating: agere and patere.

instead of operandum one sometimes finds
agendum (probably a slip, since ad agendum determinatur is a contradiction). cf. also actiones straightforwardly used for passions in {4p59}
