Triptych licenses start at $362 per year

OVERVIEW


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.

FEATURES

  • 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

BENEFITS

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.
