Use Boundary Diagrams to define inputs and outputs for your system
Boundary Diagrams are used to identify how systems, sub-systems, or components interact with one or more design items contained within a defined boundary. The direction and type of interactions can be defined. Boundary Diagrams are usually created before a FMEA session.
- Interactively create Boundary and Design Items
- Define four types of transfers: Data, Energy, Material, Physical
- Define transfer directions: input, output, and bi-directional
- Custom formatting of each item
Boundary Diagrams can be used in product development processes to:
- Identify which systems, sub-systems, or components influence a product or process within the boundary of the team's responsibility.
- Illustrate elements outside the boundary of the team's responsibility that could be a potential cause and/or effect of failure.
