# Layer Diagram

Last modified on September 13th, 2018.

Layer Diagrams organize the physical artifacts in your system into logical, abstract groups called layers. These layers describe major tasks that the artifacts perform or the major components of your system. Each layer can also contain nested layers that describe more detailed tasks. With Layer Diagrams, you can visualize multiple levels of physical decomposition and linking Conduits.

## Using Layer Diagrams

Function Description
Creating Layer Diagrams Using 'Diagrams View' in Innoslate, you can create a new 'Layer Diagram.'
Layer Diagram Constructs The 'Layer Diagram' supports two unique diagram constructs: an 'Asset' and a 'Conduit.'
Adding an Asset An 'Asset' construct can be added to a 'Layer Diagram' via drag-and-drop.
Adding a Conduit A 'Conduit' construct can be added to a 'Layer Diagram' via drag-and-drop.
Assigning Decomposition You can assign decomposition within a 'Layer Diagram.'
Removing a Construct A construct can be easily removed from a 'Layer Diagram.'
