IDEF3 Standard

IDEF3 Standard

Use Case Diagrams technology. IDEF3 Standard is intended for description and further analysis of technological processes of an enterprise. Using IDEF3 standard it is possible to examine and model scenarios of technological processes. Read more
The vector stencils library "IDEF3 process schematic symbols" contains 12 shapes: unit of behavior (UOB), links, junctions, .
Use it to design your IDEF3 process schematic diagrams.
"Process schematics tend to be the most familiar and broadly used component of the IDEF3 method. These schematics provide a visualization mechanism for processcentered descriptions of a scenario. The graphical elements that comprise process schematics include Unit of Behavior (UOB) boxes, precedence links, junctions, referents, and notes. The building blocks here are:
- Unit of Behavior (UOB) boxes.
- Links: Links are the glue that connect UOB boxes to form representations of dynamic processes.
- Simple Precedence Links: Precedence links express temporal precedence relations between instances of one UOB and those of another.
- Activation Plots: Activation plots are used to represent activations.
- Dashed Links: Dashed links carry no predefined semantics.
- Link Numbers: All links have an elaboration and unique link numbers.
Activation Semantics for Nonbranching Process Schematics.
- Junctions: Junctions in IDEF3 provide a mechanism to specify the logic of process branching.
- UOB Decompositions: Elaborations capture and structure detailed knowledge about processes.
- UOB Reference Numbering Scheme: A UOB box number is assigned to each UOB box in an IDEF3 Process Description.
- Partial Descriptions: UOB boxes are joined together by links. Because of the description capture focus of IDEF3, it is possible to conceive of UOBs without links to other parts of an IDEF3 schematic.
- Referents: Referents enhance understanding, provide additional meaning, and simplify the construction (i.e., minimize clutter) of both process schematics and object schematics." [IDEF3. Wikipedia]

"Process schematics tend to be the most familiar and broadly used component of the IDEF3 method. These schematics provide a visualization mechanism for process-centered descriptions of a scenario. The graphical elements that comprise process schematics include Unit of Behavior (UOB) boxes, precedence links, junctions, referents, and notes. Referents and notes are constructs that are common across process and object schematics. Each of the graphical elements used for developing process schematics is presented below, together with discussions of how to formulate more complex statements using those graphical elements. The discussion begins with the most fundamental of these building blocks: the UOB." [IDEF3 Process Description Capture Method Report AL-TR-1995-XXXX. idef.com/pdf/Idef3_fn.pdf]
