SysML block definition diagram - Function Breakdown model

This example was drawn on the base of figure 1 on the webpage "Template: OASIS:FunctionalBreakdownStructure" from the OASIS website.
"The FunctionalBreakdownStructure template describes how to represent a relationship between a FunctionalElementDefinition and another FunctionalElementDefinition that is a constituent.
The SysML Block Definition diagram in Figure 1 shows how a functional breakdown is represented in the PLCS PSM."

"A block definition diagram is based on the UML class diagram, with restrictions and extensions as defined by SysML." [omg.org/spec/SysML/1.3/PDF]
The example "SysML block definition diagram - Function Breakdown model" was drawn using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the SysML solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

Event-driven Process Chain (EPC) Diagram Software

An EPC diagram is a type of flowchart used in business process analysis. It shows different business processes through various work flows. The workflows are shown as processes and events that are related to different executes and tasks that allow business workflow to be completed. An EPC diagram shows different business processes through various workflows. The workflows are seen as functions and events that are connected by different teams or people, as well as tasks that allow business processes to be executed. The best thing about this type of enterprise modelling is that creating an EPC diagram is quick and simple as long as you have the proper tool. One of the main usages of the EPC diagrams is in the modelling, analyzing and re-engineering of business processes. With the use of the flowchart, businesses are able to see inefficiencies in the processes and modify to make them more productive. Event-driven process chain diagrams are also used to configure an enterprise resource pla Read more
This example of a Top Level Context Diagram for an information system management process was redesigned from the Wikipedia file: IDEF Top-Level Context Diagram.jpg. [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IDEF_Top-Level_Context_Diagram.jpg]
"Graphical notation.
IDEF0 is a model that consists of a hierarchical series of diagrams, text, and glossary cross referenced to each other. The two primary modeling components are:
(1) functions (represented on a diagram by boxes), and
(2) data and objects that interrelate those functions (represented by arrows).
... the position at which the arrow attaches to a box conveys the specific role of the interface. The controls enter the top of the box. The inputs, the data or objects acted upon by the operation, enter the box from the left. The outputs of the operation leave the right-hand side of the box. Mechanism arrows that provide supporting means for performing the function join (point up to) the bottom of the box.
The IDEF0 process.
The IDEF0 process starts with the identification of the prime function to be decomposed. This function is identified on a “Top Level Context Diagram,” that defines the scope of the particular IDEF0 analysis. ... From this diagram lower-level diagrams are generated." [IDEF0. Wikipedia]
The IDEF0 diagram example "Top-level context diagram" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the IDEF0 Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more

IDEF0 diagram, IDEF0,
"IDEF0, a compound acronym (Icam DEFinition for Function Modeling, where 'ICAM' is an acronym for Integrated Computer Aided Manufacturing) is a function modeling methodology for describing manufacturing functions, which offers a functional modeling language for the analysis, development, reengineering, and integration of information systems; business processes; or software engineering analysis.
IDEF0 is part of the IDEF family of modeling languages in the field of software engineering, and is built on the functional modeling language Structured Analysis and Design Technique (SADT). ...
FIPS PUB 183 "Integration Definition for Function Modeling (IDEF0)," was withdrawn as a Federal Standard (in favor of OPEN Specifications and Standards) September 2, 2008, as cited in "The Federal Register", Volume 73, page 51276 (73FR/51276). ...
IDEF0, used to produce a "function model". A function model is a structured representation of the functions, activities or processes within the modeled system or subject area." [IDEF0. Wikipedia]
