N-Squared Diagram

Last modified on December 18th, 2018.


The 'N-Squared Diagram', is a matrix used to visualize the relationships between Actions and Inputs/Outputs. This diagram conforms to the LML Specification 1.1 definition of an 'N-Squared Matrix.'

The 'N-Squared Diagram' is not composed of special diagram constructs. In fact, an 'N-Squared Diagram' can be generated by Innoslate on the fly based on the current contents of your project’s database. The 'N-Squared Diagram' is built using entities in the database of the 'Action' and 'Input/Output' classes. The actions display as blocks within the matrix, and the I/Os show as text within the matrix.

Using N-Squared Diagrams

Function Description
Creating N-Squared Diagrams Using 'Diagrams View' in Innoslate, you can create a new 'N-Squared Diagram.'
Viewing N-Squared Diagrams You can 'View a N-Squared Diagram’ of any new or existing entity of the Action class via the 'Open' drop-down menu, where available.
Adding an Entity An entity can be added to an ‘N-Squared Diagram’ via drag-and-drop.
Removing an Entity An entity can be easily removed from an ‘N-Squared Diagram.’
