This section defines the building blocks of a ‘Asset Diagram’ in Innoslate. The ‘Asset Diagram’ supports two (2) unique diagram constructs: an ‘Asset’ and a ‘Conduit’. Each diagram construct is described in more detail below:

  • Asset

    This construct is used to capture the physical components of a system.

    In the system model, a simple Asset entity is generated to represent a ‘Asset’ construct with no additional diagram specific information. Innoslate’s default database schema includes labels to specify the type of this Asset entity as a(n) Architecture, Context, Environment, External System, Facility, Infrastructure, Materiale, Organization, Package, Personnel, Segment, Service, Subsystem, and/or System.

    In the diagram, this construct is represented as a rounded block containing the number and name of the ‘Asset’, as shown below:

  • Conduit

    This construct is used to capture the relationships between physical components of a system.

    In the system model, a Conduit entity is generated to represent a ‘Conduit’ construct with a connects to relationship to each of the entities which represent the two (2) connected constructs. Innoslate’s default database schema includes labels to specify the type of this Conduit entity as a(n) Aggregation, Association, Cable, Composition, Downlink, Interface, Network, Pipe, Roadway, Uplink, and/or Wireless.

    In the diagram, this construct is represented as a solid line connecting two (2) ‘Asset’ constructs and a line label containing the name of the ‘Conduit’, as shown below:
