I'm looking for a word...

The best word is "component", but I cannot use it.

Picture a process or methodology. This process has multiple
components; a database component, a VB code component, a Framework
component, other componenets with proprietary names. The sum of all
these components defines the methodology.

However, I need to avoid using the term component in this context
because in the same document, I discuss .NET components; ASP, DLLs,

I don't want to use the same term to cover both concepts, even though
they are being discussed in different chapters, and since developers
know the later convention, I need to come up with an alternative for
the first.

Any ideas?
